Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
This often happens with notebook batteries - even unused, there is a limited shelf life. (I had a brand new one that, after sitting ready as a "spare" only, would not work after some 3 - 4 years.) As there appears to be no N60c notebook, it is assumed that you are referring to a 600, 610, of 620.
The primary issue you are having in booting up is, with a very high level of probability, the CMOS battery. Life on these internal batteries varies - some have been known to go in 5 years or less, and others are still active more than 15 years later. At any rate, experienced this directly - 2 machines that had sat unused for some 2 years, and when powered up, nothing. Both could not reasonably have been expected to "just die" at the same time. Turned out that replacement of CMOS battery solved all problems (for just a couple dollars each).
Finally, quick word of caution. The battery for the unit that has completely discharged should be removed. You may either replace it or use the battery compartment cover that should have been with the notebook, and utilize only the A/C adaptor. The reason for this is so that you can isolate the cause of the failure to boot. A laptop battery that has fully discharged could be a constant source of frustration and irritation to a notebook, causing numerous issues, including rebooting at will.
