thanks Thumper. say what happened to your screen name? your rep us to be like a billion if i recall. i thought the same thing. i have solved my problem in a strange way, i just leave my computer on all the time now.
its all most like the battery is draining and even draining when the computer is on, doesnt charge at all. i pulled all the good stuff out of the board started er up then yanked the battery and hooked up a volt meter. i have a 1mV constant drain even when running.
my thing is, why or how could this happen after it has been installed and running in my case for like 6 months. i havent even blew the inch of dust out of it. weirdmakes me
