i have a laptop whose battery is completely wasted and therefore keep it on direct current but due to power cuts in my building i would like to know whether these sudden power cuts can cause any problem for the motherboard or any of its components?

Yes, http://www.howtogeek.com/howto.....r-outages/ Recommend something along these lines. Why not get a new battery?

It won't hurt the motherboard as much as it might screw up the software.

That would be my opinion. Unless of course there is a major power surge, but even then the brick should take the hit.
