    try removing a stick of RAM, sounds like something is delaying the boot. not sure if the battery could tie into this theory but it may be drained. have you tried leaving the battery out and keeping the computer plugged in? this will tell you if it's a problem with the battery or not.

    I have tried leaving the battery out and starting it as well as unplugged with battery in which is telling me it shouldn't be the battery i have had some what similar stuff happen to desktop one time and i found it was the mobo hoping that will not be the case here.
    I will try reseating the ram and see what happens
