Check Power Options settings please and ensure not set to battery operation alone. Reset settings. Battery can be left out of the unit, as it is primarily an Alternative power source. Go into Device Manager and check "BATTERY" menu item and learn there. What does it say when it powers down on the main power? Does it give any error codes or messages?

Great advise from Defender.
Keep in mind that when a battery is removed from the laptop, it will slowly discharge and you must store it in a safe dry location. You will also want insert the battery back into the laptop at least once a month, and condition the battery to keep the cells fully functionable and help the laptop and battery remember how to hold a charge.
