Default Is this normal? (Battery issue) - 08-27-2010, 11:03 PM

I searched but couldnt seem to get an answer. Just purchased a dell mini 10 (1011) that was used 4 times. Computer off the led is white but when i boot either xp or ubuntu the light will eventually go amber/white and the screen will dim everytime it cycles battery power to ac power. i unplug and its fine for a few mine. i got a replacement battery from dell but its doing the same exact thing.

Did Dell test it with your battery and charger? Only thing left is the charger.
