Default Laptop Power ?

I have a Compaq Presario R3000. I have searched for articles relating to my problem but with no luck. While running on battery power with nearly full charge in the battery, my laptop will suddenly shutdown with my battery at 0% charge when I plug it in. This does not happen always, maybe 1 out of 4 times when on battery. Any ideas on what the problem might be? Something shorting out on the mobo??

It may be a shorting problem but I wouldn't guess so, have you tried refreshing your battery?

What you do is either let it drain all the way to zero and charge it to full and then repeat the process a few times or check to see if your laptop has a battery refreshing/training/renewing function built in.
