My laptop says: Plugged in, not charging. Then after I shut it down, a day later or so, it will say: Plugged in, charging, then it's fully charged. The battery level drops really really fast when unplugged. It will do this with other power cords also. Could the battery be bad or is it the laptop?

I finally got to do discharge the battery. I did as you said & the result is: At 100%, I unplugged the adapter & the time was 2:43pm, it shut down at 3:35pm. Which is not quite an hour. I plugged it back in to charge, then turned it back on, it's at 100% again, saying Fully Charged. Just out of curiosity, while the laptop is on & using it, I unplugged it, it started dropping, then I plugged it back in & it started to charge. I did this several times. (while the laptop is on & using it, I unplugged it, it started dropping, then I plugged it back in & it started to charge).
