I have a 9-cell battery for SL500, that is still able to keep a charge of about 4.5-5 hours despite it being about 1 year old.
Yesterday my laptop was running perfectly off just the battery...Now I am experiencing the following problems:
1. Laptop is unable to boot from just the battery (even though it is 100% charged)
2. When I launch it with the AC power and then disconnect it, the laptop just shuts off as if i didn't even have the battery in...
