    Hi, recently my battery charge wont go above 0%, my laptop is relatively knew so I doubt the battery is dead but when i whent into my bios, it still shut down. My computer will shut down within a minute of unplugging.
    My other issue is ive never gotten the hdmi port working, the laptop just doesnt recognize anything as being plugged in.
    My laptop is a MSI GS70
    I'm running opensuse 13.1 gnome
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    If it shuts down even while in BIOS, it's a battery/circuit/contact problem.

    I'd start by measuring the battery voltage - some internet search and a voltmeter would do the trick, if there's charge check the contacts, both in the battery and the laptop - some obstruction, perhaps.

    If not, I hope it's still under warranty, as there's not much more you can do AFAIK.

    Good look.

    Thanks for the help. unfortunately its not under warranty. hoping for just obstruction or a loose connection.
