I do no see any thing to unlock to remove battery. I do no want to force it open.
How do i unlock it to remove. Reason for removing it to shut my computer down because it will not shut down while battery is good.Has circle and says shutting down. Has done this for hours. Don't want to deplete battery.
There is a battery release latch on the bottom near the battery. See this helpful image:
Acergirl, a method that often works when a laptop refuses to shut down is to hold down the power button until everything goes off. Keep holding it for another four seconds to make sure that it is not in Hibernate.
