Question about Toshiba Satellite A105-S4284 Notebook

My laptop won't hold on battery after loading OS

Hello everyone, I think I have a very odd case, I have a Toshiba Satellite A105, and I just got a new battery for it but the moment it starts loading the operative system, it shuts off. Now the weird part is that the battery holds up to 2 hours if I stay on the BIOS menu, or even the GRUB loader (I have both windows 7 and ubuntu), but as soon as it starts loading any of the OS, is just shuts off. I already tried to install the original OS (windows xp media server), and the battery held on during the whole installation (about an hour), but after rebooting the first time, again it shuted off befire it finished loading. I've been looking for a similar problem to solve mine, but still haven't got any luck. If anyone knows what can i do, please help!
