    I swear, Dell is making and sending all these broken down computers to us. I have the same problem. And I hate calling Dell tech support because it's always at least an hour to finish talking to one rep, and most of the time, the problem isn't fixed. No more Dell for me in the future. Can anyone recommend a better brand?

Dell had several recalls on their batteries. You need to contact customer support to see if yours is one in the recall.

Good luck to you and others!

When try t charge my battery in my Vostro 1000, I get a message " The battery cannot be identified the system will not be able to cahrge the battery

Try this first:

Use up the battery until the the screen would black out. Afterwards, reboot the laptop ( without using the AC adaptor) and the system will warn you of low battery - to press F1. After pressing F1, plugged the AC adaptor back and try rebooting.

If the above does not work, there is a Bios update from Dell that suppose to fix this problem.

Replace the battery. Their batteries only last 2-3 years max.

Are you using the original charger or another. The Dell power system will give this message when you use a 70W charger on a system that needs a 90W charger - check the sticker on the back. Also, if the plug to the main board gets just a little loose you will get this message. Be careful you are not putting too much strain at the power plug or you will need a repair soon!

Inspirion 1000 with XP won't come out of dormant phase. What is wrong ?

Hi dj,

Reboot, at reboot look for the F button option to "enter setup", press F? button. Navigate to boot options, choose safe mode, save changes exit. When os comes up and is stable click start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Choose date before issue arises and click next/ok/continue. When restore is complete reboot, enter DOS enviroment(F button option "enter set up"), choose normal boot, save changes and exit.
