May I replace my noisy battery?

Since long time ago I have noticed a disturbing noise coming from my Acer Aspire MS2287 notebook.

This noise was not continuous, but randomly started and stopped.

Recently I did some research and found that it might be caused by the battery.

I removed the Aspire's battery and the notebook is not making noise anymore.

 

Could it be a faulty battery?

 

Probably the netbook is not under warranty anymore, but this noise started almost at the beggining when the notebook was bought.

 

Do you have any suggestion please how to solve this (other than replacing the battery on my own)?

 

thanks a lot,

    If you are still under warranty, then they will replace it. It would be nice if you could find someone or somewhere to try a known good battery, but The fact that if you take it out, the problem goes away would point to it being bad.

    I don't know MS2287.  Is that an Aspire 7740?

    What kind of noise? A beeping noise?

    I apologize for confusing you.

    You're right! it is model 7740/7740G.

    The noise is continous, It happens randomly.

    When i remove the battery and use the AC it doesn't make the noise any more.

     

    thanks again,
