just refurbished an old Thinkpad L440 but when i switch it on and boot windows with battery, it shuts off after reaching the desktop and the power button light flashes a few times.
it also refuses to power up when i put the laptop in the dock with battery plugged in, if i remove the battery it powers up.
also boots to desktop and runs fine without battery.
could it be a motherboard fault? i have two batteries one old and one brand new, both lenovo genuine.
i don't have the original psu but found a slim tip 230w lenovo psu on ebay and have been using that, do i need a lower wattage psu? might that be the cause? i also purchased another motherboard. i have since checked online the psu specs and the 65w, 90w and the 120w psu are all 20v just like the 230w.
