Default Mini 9 charges but won't run off of the battery - 08-02-2012, 07:17 AM

I was getting my Mini 9 ready for sale by wiping the runcore and reinstalling the original OS. It worked perfectly up until I reinstalled XP, hours of battery life, etc... After installing XP home and all of the drivers, I could use the Fn+3 and see the battery and that it was charging but if the AC power was disconnected, it shuts down and cannot be powered up while no plugged in. I just reinstalled 7 and the drivers and it seems to be performing the same way now as it did under XP. The battery icon is in the tool bar and shows it charging and then fully charged. I am not sure what the heck happened. Any ideas.
