IBM thinkpad A21 won't start up

\015 Hi, I got a Thinkpad A21 in 2003 that was working just fine. In 2006 I bought a new laptop so I wasn't using the A21 anymore.A year ago I tried to start up the A21 but it just won't. I push the power button and the hardrive & battery lit for a second but then nothing happens. The thing is, sometimes, it starts up! And it works just fime then, but when I turn it off, I have to try 200-1000 times before it works again. It's just frustrating as no one seems to know what the problem is.The battery is almost dead, I plug it before trying to starting it up.\015
