Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1318 Notebook ?

For all those getting messages when they plug in their AC adapter saying it can't be found etc and their batteries are "dead" in under a year....the batteries aren't dead they can't be charged becasue Dell packaged the wrong adapter. I know this becasue they overnighted the right one ot me free Under a year old and of course now all is well. Just a FYI


Answers :
