    my laptop's battery has become history in 1.5 years...
    It was my fault, I left my laptop in discharged condition for about 4-5 month....
    I replaced the battery with new one...
    and now it's working fine....

    well, there's your next clue, i think the power supply for the laptop is aging as well and needs replacement.
    else it may be a hardware failure within the laptop, maybe something to do with internal power-regulators
