Re: Strange (to me) laptop problem
After consulting Dell tech support I was told the following, followed by results:
A.) I need to update my BIOS
Result: Failed. Bios update tool says it is running on an unsupported system. They did not give me a reason as to why.
B.) My motherboard has gone bad
Result: I disagree and cant justify spending the money on a new motherboard.
C.) (Different person, second time contacting them) My battery is bad and I should replace it
Result: This doesnt make sense to me as my battery LED is not on while plugged into the AC adaptor. Also my battery charges fine while the laptop is on, and my laptop runs without problem on battery power.
Conclusion: I just wasted 90mins of my life and am going to extremly tired at work in the morning for now good reason. Not confident as to what is wrong, still looking for any help/suggestions (backed with logic)
