We've had this notebook for a while with no problems (maybe 4 years with multiple users). Yesterday, I purchased a new adapter because my old one was making a very faint squealing type noise and not sending power to the computer or charging the battery. I plugged in the new one this morning and it registered for about 3 seconds and then went back to battery power, which at this point, I have very little/none. I took out the battery and attempted to power the notebook with the adapter, but the computer wouldn't turn on. I put the battery back in and now it won't turn on at all.
A technician in India said I need a new $140 battery. I think it might go above and beyond battery issues.

From my years of working with computers most of them only work with one video card at a time. If you have two video cards on the computer and if you have them both connected, a lot of computers get confused and can't handle that.
I've seen computers where there is a VGA Port (that normally comes with most computers) and the user goes out an purchases some heavy duty graphics video card and installs it. When they try use the VGA port, the computer refuses to switch to it as long as that other video card that they purchased is in the computer.
I've down countless of house calls to repair a computer where the purchased video card has gone bad and the customer thinks they are up the creek without a paddle until they get a new video card. Not so, I just remove the bad video card and plug into the vga video port that came with the computer.
If you only do minor work on your desktop, you can still have a motherboard that's loaded with features. Just be sure to buy a PCI-E motherboard and ask if it has a built in video card so you won't have a problem with your budget.I recommend ECS motherboard.
