I have an issue with my dell mini 10v.
This has been happening since few months ago I didn't care but I think it's a hardware issue. The laptop is still under warranty I just want to make sure it's really broken.
The screen flicker when it's on battery power like it's not have enough power to give all it's brightness. On low brightness settings it's okay. When I do a cpu intensive task it's horrible it flicker 4-5 times per second with a high pitch noise. On AC it all right. BTW I'm in canada.
I tried under, OS X 10.6 and Windows 7 32 bits and it does the same exact thing. In OS X it takes more time, seems like the battery need to be drained a bit more. On windows a 99% battery it does that.
Is this a common issue? I've seen few posts talking about that but no answer or real cause to the problem.
