I can only turn my computer on when i have the power cord plugged in. This has only happened since i removed a virus couple of days ago.
Its not the battery as when i take out the cord straight away the computer will remain on for some time.
I rarely use the computer without the cord so it should mean the battery is well charged.

Can anyone help please

Might be stating the obvious here but there's no way any virus can affect a system physically. There's no way it can have anything to do with the battery.

It may just be co-incidence that whatever the laptop does to source power from the battery when you turn it on stopped working at the same time as you got shot of a virus. As you say, it works fine if you pull the plug out.

Might not be a lot you can do about it in all honesty.
