New battery time.

Mine only lasted about a year as well (various Toshiba and HP laptops).
Actually, my HP's screen went out one month after the warranty crapped (13
months) which cost several hundreds of dollars to fix which was far more
annoying than the dead (weak battery).  A couple of months later, the damn
DVD burner became toast (coaster maker), also to the tune of several
hundreds of dollars, yet it still has the original weak battery in it.  Even
the factory supplied CD's of the Window's XP Home operating system failed to
be recognized (faded?) until I tried a copy of them on the desktop computer
with CloneCD (which mysteriously worked!).

The $150 battery would be small potatoes should I ever replace it.  I just
cannot get into spending anymore money keeping the thing going though.

The laptops aren't built to last...so it seems.
