Can a dead battery cause overheating

My daughter has a ZV6000 and sometimes the fan wouldnt spin up I knew there was nothing in the battery as win 7 shows there is no battery inserted.

Could a dead battery cause overheating?

Maybe putting too much load onto the ac adapter and stopping the fan responding.

When the battery is removed it seems to work fine every time on boot up

your thoughts

Fan is controlled by the sensors on the motherboard. Is the computer usable if you run it using an adapter?

Unless the battery is heating up too much, I do not think it can cause overheating. However if you have a bad or a shorted battery, I believe it will affect the electronics of your motherboard.

Runs fine without the battery with no problems

maybe the battery is beyond the point of being a battery now

the battery does get warm but not really hot

have run speedfan and the temps are normal without the battery

When the battery is installed if I start the laptop the fan starts to spin then goes off and sometimes does not come back on at all till it switches itself off

with the battery removed the laptop starts fine with the fan and the fan stays on all the time

weird

and the batteries for this are a lil on the expensive side
