HP Pavilion xt4316WM..battery messing w/ keyboard???

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Ok, so my keyboard was not working very good, it'd miss key strokes
....I went to look at my battery's model # and pulled it out. Ok, now my
KB works.
What the hec??

Any ideas??

it's a xt4316wm (walmart special hehe, a compaq in pav skin basically)
it's been really great for 2 years, it's showing age but im gonna fix
it up w/ ram and hopefully figure out this weird issue with the
kb/battery. I just gave it a new 60gig drive so far. Love this thing.

should i get a new battery? the gauge on the side shows nothing, it's
dead-doesnt charge any more and the orange light flashes all the time
with or w/out battery installed.

Any advice is appreciated, im pretty good with laptops, this is my 3rd!
