    The battery in my compaq laptop was completely dead. I removed it from
    the system. So if it should run properly without a battery, (AC only)
    here is the symptom I need help with. Using just AC power, when I boot
    the computer (XP-SP2) it runs for about 10 minutes, then shuts down by
    itself. This 10 minutes may vary from 5 minutes to an hour or two. This
    happens whether someone is working on it or it is idle. It also happens
    whether it is logged into windows, or even while running chkdsk on
    startup. I can actually hear the hard drive power down, and the screen
    goes blank
    Any ideas???
    BTW i also bought a brand new power supply, and got the same results.
