This happened several months ago a bit after I replaced my hard drive with a new SSD. My laptop has been unable to get any power from the battery ever since I replaced the HDD, having to be plugged in at all times, saying "0% available (plugged in, charging)". No I did not disconnect the battery before replacing the hard drive, which I now know was a mistake I was ignorant of back when I did it. But another huge mistake I made was trying the stupidest ways to remove a screw from the back panel while doing it. The screw is stripped as much as you can possibly imagine, and I mean that. I need to know if I have to really go to someone who can take it out, or if there is way to make the battery work without having to do it / a way to take the screw out myself without having to spend more than $10-15. All help appreciated. Thank you.
