Linuxhelp _ Hardware Support _ Notebook battery problem

Ya so this problem is odd. My node book is kinda old not sure what year because I bought it used but it's a 533 AMD. I used it for like 5 months then gave it to my friend well 2 weeks after she has it I get a call saying the battery is not work, she can only run it off the adapter. So I don't really care and don't know what to say. But now I have the notebook and she's right the battery isn't working. The adapter will charge the batter to 100% but I have to run it off the adapter other wise the laptop will just turn off. I can't even start it with out the adapter. ??? I have no clue what could be wrong because I've never seen a case where the battery can charge and be reconized charging in debian and then not work. Anyone have any clue what could be wrong.

Your problem still might be related to a bad battery.
