windows xp pro sp2
bios ver: Phoenix Technologies Ltd. EA. M1.83 4/11/03
Patches from HP installed:
Intel Speedstep technology applet
so onto the question. my batter light changes red when i run it off of AC power. when i unplug (even though i know the battery is fully charged) i get the critical battery message. i can continue to operate my computer for up to 2 or 3 hours, but this error bugs me. also the mouse pointer sticks periodically, even though i installed the patch from the HP website. any help would be appreciated.

The battery could need re-calibrating. try pressing f6 when starting the 600 after tthe bios sccreen. this sjhould launch the calibration utility, but it takes a while to complete. otherwise it could be the DC board inside which is failing.
The pointing stick could need the keyboard replaceing though if its still doing it.(if you mean the one in the keyboard)its worth re-seating the connection though and try that
