I have an eMachines laptop that I got for Christmas 2008. Recently, it has been doing a few strange things. In the bottom right hand toolbar there is an empty battery with an "x" over it and a plug-in thing. Whenever I scroll over it, the pop-up menu says "No battery is detected." Additionally, I can only turn on and use my laptop whenever it is plugged into the wall, not wirelessly.
I dropped it on the carpeted floor of my room. It wasn't a hard, momentous fall by any means, but I am wondering if there is a correlation. What should I do?
