Exclamation Battery - 0% (Plugged in, charging) - 04-05-2011, 12:21 AM

Windows 7 shows this on icon mouseover : 0% available (plugged in, charging).

But if I remove AC plug, it turns off automatically.

I have found the AC socket loose, so I glued it, still it didn't changed anything.

I have upgraded BIOS to A06 ... still, nothing.

Is my battery dead ?

Very likely.

I downgraded to A00, the front lights (white and orange) started to flash until I removed and re-inserted the battery.

Could it be a bios issue ?

Otherwise where can you get cheap batteries replacement ?

I don't know if it is a BIOS issue or not, but since you tried A00 and A06, I would say probably not. be aware that "cheap batteries" may be a waste of money - certainly some people have found that. MyDigitalDiscount.com sells an 8-cell battery that works for many (myself included.) I am not sure where to get a 4-cell except from Dell.
