Question about Dell Computers & Internet
For weeks now I've been seeing the blinking lights, and a battery slowly drain to zero. I couldn 't figure out why my battery wouldn't charge? I've had my computer about 2 yrs (or so), and never used it without the AC adapter plugged in. I pulled out the battery, turned my computer on and finally no more flashing lights! So...my question is; do batteries sometimes just die because they're old? And then, after I replace the battery, should I pop it in only when not using AC power?
yes laptop batteries do die over time depending on the use of them so i would first check and make sure that the power cord is working than if so than yes get a new battery.
and the battery should stay in the laptop to help keep the cmos battery on the motherboard charged ok?
hope that this is helpful for you
best regards mike
