I have a Lenovo x1 carbon from about 2014. Windows 7. About 3 weeks ago it started telling me to replace the battery. It runs fine on the power adapter but only for about an hour on the battery. The new battery I would like to order is not in stock and will not arrive for 8 - 10 weeks.
The issue I am having is that after the laptop is shut down it will not start unless I unplug the power adapter and plug it back in. If I unplug it and plug it back in it starts normally and runs fine all day. If this is normal and expected and will resolve itself when I install a new battery then I will just keep on un-plugging and re-plugging until the new battery comes in. However, if this is not normal and not expected and will not resolve itself with a new battery, then I would like to know if there is anything else I should or could do to resolve this.
Thank you in advance for your help!
