Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
I had this problem with mine, inside the laptop there is a power extension block that plugs into the motherboard i replaced my power extension block at around 25 pounds from ebay, as for the battery cutting out that also needs to be replaced as its dying which means it cannot hold the charge, if you leave your power cable in after you replaced the block it will stay on. hope this has helped

It sounds like a mother board problem since you upgraded the bios and got different results. Try plugging in the adapter and warming it up. Will the computer run without the battery? that will also let you know if it's the battery.
My initial thought was that your AC adapter may have a heat problem or failing after a while. Wrap it in plastic and put it in ice and see if it lasts longer. If you have the same problem there are other issues going on in the computer power system.
