Looks like it's time to get a new laptop. The battery has been shot for awhile, but it's been fine plugged in. However, the past day, even plugged in, I'm getting battery low messages and the display keeps shutting off (it's happened 4 times in the past 30 minutes). It's 4 years old, so replacing the battery doesn't make sense. Just dread having to "start over" with a new one.
