Question about Compaq Pentium 4 , 1.5 GHz (244318-B21) Processor
I am having problems with my display, colors are faded and shadowing occuring some Horizontal lines visible. I thought the monitor ws bad so I bought a new one and it displays the same. I thought it was the Microsoft SP3 update so I deleted it and the display is the same. so maybe it is the graphics card>64mb nivida geforce2 mx graphics card with tv out........ My computer is an Compac 2001 model pent4 1.5 ghz 512k Ram. Ihave checked and verified that I have the proper drivers for both the graphics card and monitor. both show enabled and working properly. I have windows XP now running SP2 update.
Tips for a great answer:

It sounds to me like some of the cells in the battery has collapsed.
A 12 volt light doesn't use as much juice on the battery as when you boot up. When Mobo, Monitor, Harddrive etc etc. start up they all use a large start-up-current and if the battery cant sustain the amount of amp. they all need together, nothing happens.
This is called shadow-charge, the battery seems fine, but when it really needs to put out some power it collapses.
I think you should try to sniff up another battery and see if this one has the same problem.
Or perhaps investigate wether or not you still have some warranty left on the battery, to try to get a free replacement.
