You may be right. I've installed Windows 7 and let the battery run down to completely flat and Windows started absolutely fine. So maybe I led myself down the wrong path with Mint or possibly Linux. I'll see how I get on with another linux disti but think I'll be recommending to my friend to purchase a copy of Windows 7.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

When I say battery I am saying the laptop battery and not the cmos battery.
By your own admission you said the following in post 9:

I did mean that I let the battery run completely out then plug the mains in and start the laptop.


Then in post 11:

I left it charging for 2 hours and tried to boot but still had the same problem, by the way.




It seems the laptop battery needs to be replaced which can be bought from a laptop store or someplace like Batteries Plus.

That's great, thanks. I did realise you meant the main battery. Oddly, I've started and restarted Win 7 about 10 times with no problems.
