power to my laptop

Recently I was having difficulty starting up my laptop HP dv9605/os-Vista. The only way seemed to be by removing and returning the battery from its housing. Then power was restored, HP's battery testing confirmed a new battery was required. I purchased a new genuine product and charged for the recommended 10hrs,tested and verified that new battery was fully charged and condition good. Yet although it managed to start first time twice, sadly I'm back where I started, by having to remove the battery, although I normally use mains power this still is annoying. Can anyone provide guidance.

I'm not quite sure about this, when you remove and replace the battery is this with the mains connected or disconnected? If you leave the battery out, does the machine start normally every time?

I have been messing with this for while today, resulting in these facts:

It will start from battery only first time, as it will using mains adaptor. Yet to power up via mains adaptor with battery inserted only gets as far blue LED lightning smybol indicating battery charging.

That is really strange and I have never come across that before so I suggest a couple of things. Post your problem on the HP Support Forum Click Here and you might also try something others have recommended which is said to remove static from the board. Power down, remove both the battery from the laptop and unplug from the mains, hold the power on switch down for 15 secs, reinsert the battery and the mains plug and boot up. Some swear that it has cured battery problems, personally I don't see it but it is worth a try.
