I have problem with my battery.I cant use it without cable,because it shut down when i take out the cable. When i click the battery icon it says "the battery is not charging" and i cant change in the energy saver preferences from power adapter( 'Settings for: Power adapter') to battery. I installed Battery Update 1.4 but it still isnt working.
Any idea,how can i fix it?
The battery was good for 2 years, but now it went wrong.

Sorry for my bad english.
