Hi Reub,

you refer to a new cmos battery, are you confusing this with the regular run Battery?

Have you tried starting the Laptop without the run Battery installed, just with the psu connected.?

Old, nearly dead or dying Batteries can throw up funny conditions when attempting to start one's Laptop.

What happens when trying to start using just the run battery only, without the psu connected?

Good Luck - Keep us Posted.
