Is the circuitry on my Laptop fried or is my battery just dead?
The battery is about 21 months old. It seems to have been slowly dying over the past few months. The taskbar battery icon has not showed it above a 30% charge in the past few weeks. It would randomly shut down and restart. This morning it did that, and now I can't even turn it on even while plugged in. What is it?

1. When's the last time you removed it?

They do die. But try putting it in the freezer for an hour or so! ;)

2. I removed it after it went dead this morning
I was able to turn it on then it shut off as Windows began to load, haven't been able to turn it on since?
