weird situation here:
hp DV2000 laptop. My client just had the motherboard replaced for graphics issues. (I did not install it)
Client wanted me to install software and carry over data from an existing drive.
well, at first, everytime I booted into BIOS, the Windows disk, or Darik's the computer would shut down. I would have to wait to fire it up. the charging port would flash instead of staying solid.
I tried different chargers, same thing. I tried a different battery and it seemed to be a little better. I even let it charge over night.
Worked for a bit this morning and then right back to shutting down every minute.
The catch: with no battery in it, the PC would stay on. I realize that a dead battery might be the cause of something like this if it wasn't plugged in. It has been plugged in this whole time though. Right now, it has been on for 45 minutes or so without the battery. NOT A HITCH! what's the deal here? any suggestions?
