- Battery troubles with Compaq C500

Earlier today, I disconnected the battery in my laptop while my laptop
was in use on AC power... ironically so I could purchase another
battery. Now I can't get it to operate on battery at all, but it works
fine on AC power. My questions are did I fry the battery? Did I fry a
portion of my laptop so it won't operate on battery at all? Is there
any way to fix it, or is it permanent?
I have done this a few times with my old NVO 180, and never had any
adverse effects, so I had no idea that it would cause such a major
Any help would be most appreciated.

Was that battery on the way out? If so, I would bet that the battery
just was on its last legs and it finally died. Pulling the battery out
while charging shouldn't hurt a thing. As they are designed to do that.
