Spent hours before discovering the problem is related to the battery. Once that was found out i did some online searches to see if this was a common problem. I've found a few cases where other people have experienced the same type of thing. Is it better to run the laptop with no battery or with the microsoft ACPI complience device dissabled? Is this a permanent fix or do i need to order a new battery? If so does anyone know the best place to buy one from?
With ACPI power management, the computer has the ability to function as follows: ? The computer is ready for immediate use when the user turns it on. ? The computer appears to be off when not in use, but it can still respond to wakeup events. Wakeup events can occur when a device receives input, such as a telephone ringing, or when software requests that the computer wake up at a predetermined time (for example, to download e-mail so it is ready in the morning). ? The system can change how software responds when the power state of the computer changes. The operating system and applications work together to operate the computer and deliver effective power management according to the user's current actions. Applications do not keep the computer busy unnecessarily; instead, they proactively participate in shutting down the computer to conserve energy and reduce noise. It is best to turn the ACPI on and buy a new battery. I would shop on the internet. Try; http://www.pricewatch.com
