Systemax Notebook Power Problem

  RichardDGibson 14:13 08 Dec 03

I've got a travelbook 2500 (P4 2GHz SIS chipset etc..)

For a while now it has intermittently had an issue where it would show 100% processor use by the system service.

Programs hang and it tends to need a shutdown to fix it.

Recently, I discovered that unplugging the power lead from the back so that it switches to battery would fix the problem without a reboot.

Today, the battery has died - it shows 0% charge with no improvement after leaving it on charge for several hours.

Has anyone else had any experience similar - I'm suspicious of the coincidence.
