Does it work with the power cord alone, but just not charge? If so you can do the following for a battery report.

Option 1:
  1. Click on Start menu
  2. Type command to start searching
  3. Right click on Command Prompt and select to Run As Administrator
  4. Copy and Paste the following into Command Prompt
    powercfg /batteryreport /output "%userprofile%\desktop\battery_report.html"
  5. This will generate battery_report.html on your desktop
  6. Open the report or upload for analysis
  7. Compare the Charge Capacity with the Design Capacity. They should be close or your battery is probably bad or failing.
Option 2:
Dowload and Run the following program
