I have a Hp pavilion dv6700 series (dv6840el) and it just won't boot without the battery attached.
If i plug the AC adapter, i get some computer activity (fan, dvd drive noise and HD drive spins) for about 5 seconds and then shuts down.
Once i plug the battery (which is dying, needing a replacement), the laptop boots fine.
So, my question is: is this a motherboard or an AC adapter issue?
The AC adapter seems ok, though. But if i'm considering to buy a spare battery, i must make sure that i don't need a new AC adapter as well.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks once again for your kind attention!
The procedure consisted of plugging the AC adapter and pressing the Power button.
I tried many times during the day, like twice an hour, and got the same result: lights powering on, hd spinning, fan noise for about 5 seconds and then it would shut itself off.
Just tried the exact same ritual right now and BANG! IT WORKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Any ideas of the real explanation??
Anyway, i've just booted 4 times since then and it seems ok.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!!!!

I see that you are having problems with charging the battery on the computer. I would like to help with this issue but I need some information.
Can you provide the model and product number of the computer? Here is a link that shows how to find that information.
What kind of error messages are you receiving?
