    I am totally stumped by this one. My laptop makes this click sound at about 70% battery power (no AC) and shuts down (actually goes completely black). There is no warning and it does not go into hibernation mode. I bought an after market battery from the same vendor which I bought my previous battery. I have a battery monitor software (Battery Mon) that shows the battery is performing well. I have had my Dell since 2006 and this is my 3rd battery. I still have the original Dell battery which can hold a charge for about 1/2 hour. The battery mon program shows it can not hold a charge.

    I am running Windows XP pro.

    On AC power, laptop works great with no issues. Any ideas or suggestions? I have to travel and I can't have my laptop die out on me. Thanks

    Have you checked Event Viewer for any error messages?

    What would I be looking for in the Event Viewer? This problem happened some days ago I don't know exactly which day. I will have to try the condition once my battery is fully charged again or at least to 75% to recreate the same scenario.
