Answers :

I have a dell 1525 inspirion, purchased it about 15 months ago (warranty just expired). It needed a new battery; once purchased, I found the battery is not being recharged. Can now only run the laptop without the battery. Is this a common problem? Can it be repaired?
\015\012A friend thinks there's a rpoblem with the mother board.
Sorry to hear about the trouble.
\015\012Could be you have a lemon, or it could be that you don't have the software to support the files you're trying to acess/download/upload. I don't know about the Best Buy there, but here they are notorious for: unless you ask for and pay for the proper support software it's not installed and your good to go (ie..Adobe Reader for PDF files, Office for word docs, etc...). Good to go home and find that you have hours worth of finding and downloading in order for you to do anything other that play solitaire on your machine.
