    I have a laptop (Aspire 1) that says the battery is fully
    charged, but as soon as I unplug, it shuts off.

    What if I put my scissors across the (unplugged) AC side of the
    adaptor? I'm guessing that won't work because of induction?

    THen if I got an adaptor plug just like the one on the adaptor and shorted

    Do I need to takeout the battery?

    Any shortcuts?

    I also have a smartphone (SX56) which would not charge, then I replaced
    battery it charged, then when it discharged, would not charge again.

    Much obliged

    What in the name of heaven are you talking about?

    You have a hell of a lot of nerve calling Windows users stupid, when you can't
    even troubleshoot your computer.

    Did this just happen? You've seen it work?
    Did you buy it used this way?

    As a general rule, anything that can be affected by shorting something
    is something you shouldn't be poking scissors into. The affect
    of the effect is destructive more often than not.

    There are utilities to look at the battery directly.
    is one such tool.
    It's a crap shoot, because there are so many different chipsets
    in laptops and many different utilities.
    But, it it works, it can tell you what the battery is telling
    the battery management software about its condition.

    If you find a better/more universal tool, I'd like to hear about it.
  4. "as soon as I unplug" -- unplug what?
    "it shuts off" -- what shuts off??

    Oh, well, guessing at what actually takes place, if unplugging the power
    cable from the laptop - while the laptop is up and running - causes an
    immediate shut off of the laptop, it could be due to a bad power
    receptacle in the laptop. Happened to me with an old HP laptop a year
    ago, or so. There may well be a set of N.O or N.C. contacts in the
    receptacle housing that are failing when pulling the power plug out.
    Or, you could have broken solder joints somewhere around the receptacle.
    It gets a lot abuse in and around that connector.

    You are in WAY OVER your head.
