    I have a secondhand Samsung chromebook with no previous problem but it seems that totally the battery has completely died. Its been getting worse over the week, lasting about 2 hours- an hour and a half on full charge. Today I charged it up to 100% from about 5% and when I unplugged it, it said I had 100% with 3 minutes remaining. I thought it was an error, but within in the three minutes it dropped to 80%, 50% and then 10%, before it completely died. I plugged it back in so I can use it, but no matter what the charge its at, it only ever has 3 minutes charge. It's not particularly old and isn't overused. What can i do to fix this?

    Yeah, I guess I'll have to, but it seems odd that it went from fairly normal to that state in a couple of days
