laptop power problem
i have a suspicion that the internal battery on my dell latitude XPi p90d has died. i will describe why i think this:
1) i used to turn it on and it would issue the warning "battery is critically low," but otherwise function normally. this was until just recently. the battery (the large one, not the "internal" one) did not hold a charge, so maybe the internal battery got worn out.
2) i tried to turn it on today and it won't even power up, it just sits there with the screen on, but it's blank. then, upon successive pluggings in, the screen now only blips on for a moment then dies.
what gives? any suggestions are welcome.
thx for reading,
