Hi, I've had my C1000 for about two months. It has the latest Cacko installed (1.23) Just today I've started having this problem...

1. It won't power on with just the battery, even though the monitor says it's 100% charged.
2. It works fine with the power adaptor plugged in.
3. When I first disconnect the power adaptor and power it on, it might come up, but it acts a bit unstable. Last time, after a couple of minutes, I clicked on something and the screen went black. Even though it was black, I would still hear that audio cue if I tapped on it, so it was almost like it was powered on, but with the screen turned off.

I tried rebooting, it rebooted on just battery power, but then it started acting strange again after it booted.

So anyway, I thought I had read about similar problems, but I can't find them. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Does it sound like a bad battery, or something else?
