Default laptop battery

Hey guys

So like today got home turned the laptop on came back saw that laptop was stuck in black screen with like u know that little square thing at top left corner the one for typing lol. So the lappy wouldn't turn off when i force reset it pressing off button so i pulled out battery and then it would turn on once i put it back in. Tried to you know take battery out and press the on button for 30 seconds and then put in charger in but nothing it gave like a faint led light? lol not sure if battery is just dead because i was always getting the windows message that the battery wear was in and it was around 90% a few months ago so yeah thats the scenario. Is my battery just ****** or is the port thing on my mobo *******?

Thanks

Does your battery charge when you have it plugged into the wall?

Can you turn the computer on when it's plugged into the wall, WITHOUT the battery installed?
