    I'm using the Compaq v3000 series laptop. Here's the thing, it doesn't boot up when it's just on battery(without the power cable plugged in). It's a 12 Cell Lithium Ion Battery. However, this only happens when I don't switch on my laptop after 2 days. So to sum it up,

    Scenario 1
    Laptop is fully charged on the 1st day, I try to boot it up with just the battery on the 3rd day, it doesn't boot up. The buttons on the keyboard is lit, but i just get a black screen. I try again by pressing the on/off button, no luck. But if I plug in the power cable and try to boot it up again, it works.

    Scenario 2
    I find that if I use my laptop everyday, i don't face any problems getting my laptop to boot up, with or without the power cable.

    So, could this be a battery problem? I'm pretty stumped, so it'll be great if someone could help me out on this.
