Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 700M Notebook ?

Laptop battery life sucks

\015 My inspiron 700m has a different battery than it came with because I sent it in when they recalled a bunch of batteries due to the couple of them that exploded. It's huge, and it used to last 5 hours. Now it lasts 30 minutes tops. Would this be because of the power cord I'm using? Or the battery? Which is more likely?\015

Power My last adapter was touchy and my laptop would charge on and off (the screen would flicker) because the adapter was loose. My battery was completely drained down to 0% and so I bought a new adapter so I could turn my laptop back on but it won't turn on. Could my "power port" be screwed up or do I just need a new battery? The battery that came from the factory with my laptop had a life of only 2 hours at the very most so it sucked to begin with.
