I have a Presario 2100, and like everyone else, i have a power problem. Mine seems to be a bit different though. The ac light comes on and the battery charges fine until I press the start button. Then the light goes off imediately and the system boots and runs fine, but only runs on the battery power. When the battery is exausted it shuts down and recharges fully.
Any feedback would be greatly welcomed.

Ndanger I have exactly the same problem. I know it is almost year since this thread was started but if you're still around and found a solution perhaps you could help me. For that matter I would appreciate help from anyone.
