Abrupt Shut Down at Bios Screen, why?

Ok, I have this Gateway MA 2 Laptop, which I wanted to do some upgrades like RAM & HD and software upgrade. But, when I try to boot the machine I get to the Bios screen and it quickly shuts down. I have tried to reset by removing battery and power supply and holding the power button down for 30 seconds, then I try to power on with just the power supply and I get no response from the machine. When I re-insert the battery it boots but shuts down again at the bios screen. ANy suggestions would be appreciated.

UPDATE: I was able to boot after a second Power Management reset.

It sounds like it has a problem with it's power management system (The battery, charger, power import board, ect.) as it seems that it can't get power long enough to work. Since it won't work without the batery, then it's probably a bad charger. Can you tell me the laptop model?

I think you are correct Chris, just noticed that Im not getting a charge at all on the battery. It's a Gateway MA2.

Thanks Chris, you were dead on, I had tried the reset earlier with no luck, but I decided to try it again and it booted correctly. Can you recommend a site where I can see the specs of this machine and what upgrades are available for this machine? Thanks again.

Probably just gateway.com. you should be able to buy parts on ebay. Here's a site that seems to have some decent stuff.
