    Hello,
    I recently got a HP iPaq 2200. It's from about 2004. It works when it's plugged into the dock. But as soon as you remove it from the dock, it looses power, and must restart windows from a power lost state.

    Basically, it acts like it has no battery power, but the battery meter saids 100%. When it was found in an old drawer, it didn't have any juice left, but I plugged it in and watched the battery meter climb little by little, and was 100% after about 2 hours.

    The thing seems to run ok except for the battery thing. I've tried looking at settings, resetting it, taking the battery out and putting it back in...

    Any tricks to this?

    Thanks!

    Battery may be dead even if it says it's okay.
