I have an Omnibook 500 which I know has a battery that won't hold a
full charge. When I plug it it the power light won't come on until I
hit the repressed reset switch.

The light just comes on solid and the unit will not power on. I have
seen the laptop that will power up and shutoff (known issue ... I think
those are just bad).

Has anyone seen this and discovered a fix ?

Thanks.
