Answers :

That's ridiculous to charge for something so easy! I would be happy to assist you in upgrading your laptop.

First and foremost, after going to the Toshiba website to see if they have any compatibility issues with upgrading to Windows 7 I found there is a BIOS update for laptops who have or may eventually stop charging batteries.

"In very rare cases, the battery pack of your PC may stop accepting a \015\012charge, i.e., the battery stops working and no longer supplies power to \015\012the computer."

Upgrading the OS will not upgrade the firmware of your BIOS so you might want to do that first. I will be working on a Walk through on upgrading to Windows 7 right now so look out for it. I will post it here when it is done but it might be too big for a response.

Good Luck,
