Tap F2 as you power up and find the battery test and run it. With a Windows 8 laptop I can only assume the battery is over 2 years old which is when they start needing to be replaced.

I already ran the battery test and it shows that battery is fine but it needs to be calibrated. Actually the battery is around 4 years old.

Did you try calibrating it? How many cycles does the test show are on the battery? 4 years is about as long as you can expect to get from a battery.

That is how they do. When a certain number of cycles is reached they can just shut down. It's a safety thing- Li-ion batteries become more of a fire risk as they get old. No real way to calibrate it if it will not charge. Can you perhaps post a screen shot of the battery test?
