T500 turns off after AC Adapter unplug

I recently got this refurbished T500, I went ahead and let it fully charge while it was turned off. After I got the message that it was 100% charged and checked the Battery status, everything seems in good conditions. After 3-5 minutes in Battery use it states I have more than 2 hours of battery life, suddenly it beeps 3 times and shut down automatically.

When I proceed to power it on again, it beeps 3 times but logs into Windows 7 perfectly.
Any comments or suggestions are more than welcome. Thanks!

There is no way to tell if the battery or the motherboard is at fault without trying a different battery. If it is a non-Lenovo (aftermarket) battery, I would say the battery is more likely the problem. If it is a Lenovo battery, the motherboard is more likely.

The battery is Lenovo, it's refurbished. I tried another battery and it didn't turn off during aprox, 20 minutes which had never happened before.

I discovered another problem though, I tried my battery on my buddy's T60 and it worked with no problems, it didn't shut down in 20 mins.

 Forgot to mention, buddy's battery was a Panasonic.

Maybe you should return the machine to the seller.
