You could take out the old battery, and charge it directly, and see if it holds a charge, if it does, then it's not the battery itself.
A couple last tests to perform before opening would be to see if the battery charges normally with the computer turned off, and a voltage stress-test to check for intermittent current in the charger/cord/plug.

How's it going to end..............

I'm playing with it now, and I've gotten it to charge up for a change. One thing I did was get rid of an ASUS Web Storage app. I also wonder whether the OneDrive was continually trying to sync files.

I'm getting it all backed up, and will investigate more soon.

She says the HP Stream computer seems slower on the internet, so we might take that back.
