For a couple years I have fooled with replacing batteries in an M700. In spite of being plugged in I get error messages to replace the battery or loose your work. I'm tired exchanging batteries.

Is there a way to bypass the battery and get the laptop to work on AC only. Intuitively it seems like it should work if plugged in even with the battery out, but obviously it does not. The battery must be in and if it is bad it fails to work on AC

Is there any way to get it to ignore the battery status?

Any suggestions or solutions?
