Laptop runs 6to10mins and turns off?

The problem that I have is my laptop is a Balance CN6555 with XP2, sometimes for about 3 weeks now it has been starting then shutoff sometimes before XP starts and sometimes after XP starts. It also makes a whippring noise, but the main problem is starting and shutoff within 6-10 minutes sometimes and before windows xp starts. I thought I had fix it 3 weeks ago but guess not. I have tried everything from unplugging the Harddisk, taking all the screws out and putting them back in the same way, to charging the battery pack all the way, using it with just the AC cord or battery, the only thing I have not tried yet is system recovery and restore on account of Adobe suits all of then about $400 worth. Can you help me?

About your description I assume that the problem is related to a software conflict.
First of all check if the option Hibernate is Unchecked

Start >> Control Panel >> Power Options >> Hibernate (must be unchecked)
This can be a cause of your shutdown after 10 min.

But you said that sometimes before start the computer is shutting down, and that could be related to a some software conflict or power.

Be sure that your computer is not virus or spyware infected
Clean your computer and see what happen

Another way to avoid this kind of issues is reinstalling the OS again.

Balance laptop new battery will not stay charged, can not turn on computer when plugged up.

Your Problem may very well be your POWER ADAPTER. Try changing that instead.

this laptop has a ECS motherboard, all drivers are in the page in this link: in this page are the drivers and all documentation, recovery disks are from the laptop manufacturer, but as you say, the company is out of bussiness, so you'll need to install the windows and then install each driver.

Need to restore my Balance Laptop

I would say that you put the first on in the drive and boot the computer from the CD. Then follow the directions. That is how it usually works.
On some computers, there is a utility in the start menu that is for that computer--recovery utilities that you start up and follow the directions, but I'd go with the former option if I were you.
