Battery discharges on Evo N400c/Also when on battery, the power controls say it is on AC Power....I have a couple of these Compaq Evo N400c notebooks with expansion bases. Oddly enough this particular one runs great in the base, and out of the base while it has the AC Adapter plugged in, when I put a perfectly good battery in the laptop and unplug the AC Adapter the icons and the power meter both say the laptop is still plugged in to the AC Adapter. Also a battery which when fully charged in another laptop, same model and configuration, which lasts two hours, when that same battery fully charged is used in this laptop it discharges within 15 minutes and the laptop hibernates. HELP!
