Answers :

If it runs off of the AC adapter and not the battery, then the battery is about 99% chance the problem. The batteries are found easily on ebay for a reasonable amount. also to reassure you that the battery is the problem do as follows:
\015\012
\015\012Goto the Control panel in the start menu,
\015\012
\015\012In control panel, open Power options
\015\012
\015\012In Power Options click the tab "Power Meter" and see the charge the battery is holding, if it states 100% and you unplug it and it turns off then the battery is dead.

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
