- Sep 7, 2002Hi everyone,
After nearly a year of fairly trouble-free Inspiron 4k + RedHat
(first 7.1, now 7.2) ownership, I am suddenly having problems with my
Although it is sitting in its bay, and I am connected to AC power,
the battery icon on my Gnome applet is GREY (w/ lightning bolt),
the same as when the battery is out of the bay entirely. When I
remove the battery and reinsert it, I get a quick "Low Battery 0%"
warning, and that is all (turns briefly white/charging, then
reverts to grey again).
Moreover, I know the battery is really not supplying any juice
because when I disconnect AC, the machine goes down instantly.
Anyone else (ever) have this problem? I would like to investigate
options before mailing the battery in to Dell...
Thanks in advance,
