Hi I have a Dell Latitude C840 and today it failed to boot up while connected to the mains with the battery in, but works fine when just on battery or with the mains connected and battery taken out. Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this?

Battery problem

Heavy charging of battery will cause voltage to drop below what is require to power motherboard.
