Presario 900 won't turn on

By ahbosler ·
I have a Presario 900 laptop that if it sits awhile(over night) when you go to turn it on nothing happens unless

You unplug the AC adaptor

Pop the battery out

Pop the battery back in

then it turns on and then you can plug the ac adaptor in at this point and evyething is fine

Don't have a clue where to begin to fix this problem/issue.

Any suggestions?

Clean the battery contacts

Use some isopropyl alcohol on a cotton tipped applicator and clean the battery contacts. The connector may be making a precarious contact with the battery anode or cathode terminals, and the spring clip may need careful pinching for more robust contact.
