PhoenixMASTER v2.0 problem on IBM 365ED laptop

I gave my girlfriend an old IBM 365ED laptop (It had been in the bottom of a storage closet for about two years). It is OLD. 18Megs or RAM, Pentium I

When I first, ahem, 'acquired' it, there was no power supply. I found one ($50) and plugged it in. Nothing. I let it stay plugged in for two days, then it started and ran great, until now.

While running or starting up, I will get a screen that says PhoenixMASTER v2.0 and it counts the memory, then it suspends the laptop. I push the power slide switch, and it will startup at the point before PhoenixMISER shows up. I doesn't do this all the time, but it is a PITA.

I noticed that, even though it is plugged in to the wall, the battery icon is still there.

Can anyone help me? It would be greatly appreciated.

Likely the battery is bad, and the unit may not work without a functioning battery.
