You can do a couple of things:

1: Download and install OpenOffice ( this is an open source productivity suite that rivals Microsoft Office and can import old MSOffice files for use.

2: Google Drive has a productivity suite that works via the web browser and allows you to maintain your files on the cloud. All you need to do is have a gmail account and you will have access to the Google Drive capabilities.

On the underneath side of the notebook there should be two screws that are usually labeled with a picture of a drum. Remove tham and the drive should slide out. Remove the drive from the tray you slid out and reverse procedure to re-install.

SOURCE: Dell inspiron 6400 Battery problem

what i would suggest is to check the bios there may be a new flash download on the dell website, my wife has a inspiron 1525, which is plugged in and says not charging, the battery will not go above 0%, but we have had to send it to dell (still under warranty) faulty motherboard. if the bios is up to date, there could be a hardware issue with the battery or motherboard

01. If the Laptop is under Warranty, you will get the technical support from the wep after typing the following website :

02. Frequent hanging may be due to Harddisk crash or latest antivirus patch not updated.

03. Please update the latest antivirus patches and run for any virus checking.

04. Over phone you will get Gold Technical support from Dell Service Support Team.

SOURCE: Inspiron 1318 but when I connect the ac adapter cpu 100%

It is a possible AC adapter problem. However please try to download the BIOS firmware update from Dell's website and see if problem exists. If it does, then try using another AC adapter (preferably the same model and make) and see if the same problem occurs. Please reply if same issue occurs.

I am afraid you do need a product key for it. You buy a copy and that allows the installation on 3 pcs for 1 product key.
As a free alternative to Microsoft Office you could use open office ( or google docs. Both of which can access Microsoft documents.

I recently purchase a Dell 1545 Inspiron laptop from BestBuy and now it is asking me to enter the 25 character product key for Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007. I cannot find it on any of the CD's...

The notebook came with a limited microsoft office licence, don't tell me, you've had it either 3 months or 6 months. The licence is limited so you buy a full one when you've got used to it.

They do it with virus checking software as well.

Money grubbing thieving I call it, nothing less than a con.

I can't give you a licence but were I in your place I'd go to and download and install a free programme called Openoffice. You can read MS documents with it and it does everything you need to do. Spread sheets, data bases the lot.

Once you've got it, uninstall MS office, you've got a better use for the the space on your HDD.

No MS Excel is a part of the MS Office suite and comes seperately from some computers. Some brand new computers may come with a trial of the office suite, but not all computers come with office on it.

Sounds like you need to restore your computer, you can do this many different ways, I suggest you backup all of your documents format your harddrive and reinstall your OS. you should have replacement discs. A fresh install usually will make it ruyn much better.

Dell Inspiron 1505; Battery does not charge; DC jack is loose..

The loose connection for the AC adapter means the motherboard needs to be replaced or the AC adapter jack on the motherboard needs to be replaced. (With Labor, it is about the same cost to buy a new motherboard as it is to have the old one fixed)

Motherboards are available on EBay for around $100
