Hi everyone,

Last night, when I turned on my laptop, it entered into a constant rebooting phase. I promptly removed the battery, unplugged the cable, and held the power key for a minute. When I placed the battery back inside, I experienced the same issue of the rebooting loop, where the Acer logo would appear, and then it restarted. However, when I only used the charge cable, no battery connected, the laptop works as well as it did before.

Is my laptop dead? Does it need a new battery? I currently use this laptop for school and writing projects. I am in the process of backing up all of my files. I just wanted to know if there was something else that could be done, because I don't have the money for another laptop. Finally, if anyone could tell me why this is happening that would be awesome. I haven't mishandled my laptop and my only problem before this is that it took a little while longer to boot up, around 90-120 seconds.

Thanks to everyone who can help.

I have to take the battery out, plug in the wall charger, and it boots fine. At that point, if I put the battery in, it works fine, and I can unplug it. However, if I try booting it up with the battery in, I get the same problem. Thanks for your fast reply.

Okay, that's better than what I feared, which was a motherboard issue. I'll try a new battery. Thanks!
