After almost 2 years, my battery will not charge. Totally dead. Netbook will run off the charger, but the battery indicator stays on "0".
I've read of three possible fixes.
1) Update BIOS to A04. Not a guaranteed fix. Note. DELL has A05 and A06 available now.
2) Something about checking "Airplane mode."
3) Buy a new battery. For some reason, the replacement batteries I've looked at said to make sure I have BIOS A04 installed first.
I'm still running Ubuntu 8.04.
Any other suggestions or ideas? This netbook was only $225 when I got it, but I'm ready for something with a larger hardrive. MSI Wind looks good.
