Computer acting weird for unknown reason

Earlier today, (around 4:30 pm), I was using my computer like always; it was working fine, there was nothing out of the ordinary. I accidentally let it run out of charge, so I plugged it up and left it while I went about my daily routine. Occupied by other things, I did not use the computer or turn it on again until, like, 10 minutes ago.

When I first turned it on, the keyboard was not working. Like, at all. Nothing would happen when I pressed any of the keys. I brought this problem to somebody else in the house with me, we turned the computer off (the power key wasn't working either, but we found a clickable icon to do it), and turned it on again.

When it came back on, the keyboard was working - but the computer itself kept randomly going off, only seconds after we got it on. This happened a few times; then we tried plugging it in, and we managed to keep it on for a short while - but once we unplugged it, it went off again. It's been on for a fairly long time now, plugged in - but I'm afraid to try unplugging it!

It's really confusing and frustrating - I swear I didn't do anything to damage it before this happened, and it wasn't acting weird at all the last time I used it. The only thing I did out of the ordinary was let it run out of charge, and then I didn't touch it until now, when this happened. Does anybody know what might be going on?

@ekcb ,Em , You say it is working now when plugged in, It is possible the battery is failing, maybe the charger failing or not connected quite properly is the battery showing full charge now. If battery showing full charge you may just have to brave it, unplug and see if it will run on battery if showing charged if it does not run on battery, battery or connection likely faulty. Link to battery removal below,battery can be tested with DVOM to see if it is holding a charge and check all connections. Try another compatible charger if battery low and check the charge port for dust/lint etc. and clean out, look inside port for any damage terminals and straighten with tooth pick very carefully, also with cord plugged in note whether port tries to wiggle/loose as this could be the fault needing repair. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

@lpaff1, yes, the battery was showing full charge when this happened. Since making this post, I've tried unplugging it - it seems to be working fine now, even when it runs low on charge. I'll certainly keep your answer in mind if this starts happening again! Thanks!


@ekcb,Em, It is good to here your device is up and running, thanks for posting back.
