Lap top that won't work after holiday!

  NickyK 18:29 08 Sep 2008

My stepfather runs a Dell lap top with XP. Whenever he comes back from a trip away, the darn thing won't start. It is dead for an hour or two, and eventually starts. I think it must be batteries. Any ideas would be most welcome!

REmove the battery and start on mains only if OK then buy a new battery.
