Replacing my internal battery

So I got an Asus laptop with a hardware problem. When I turn it on, it says "No battery is detected." It's an internal battery, so it's a pain in the butt to remove, but I've done it. Now I want to figure out if there's a way to know with certainty that the battery is the problem, and not another component inside my computer. If the battery is the problem, I'll gladly replace it. But I don't want to spend the price of a new battery only to find out that it's just as useless as the current one because something else is wrong.

Any advice?

:welcome:   BJ2727,

 

If you have or if you can borrow a multimeter see Checking Battery Charge with a Multimeter info here (omit step one obviously).

 

If you do not have access to a multimeter your best bet would be to have a local tech store test the battery for you, some will do this for free and some for a small fee, please ask first.

 

NB: Too late now but you would have been better to post here before removing the battery, the problem for example may have been software related.
