    My daughter's college laptop, 9 months old,
    is popping up annoying battery advertisements
    from Dell ("Your battery is nearing the end of
    its usable life, click here to order a new one").

    This is annoying, any idea how I can turn it off?
    She should get another two years out of the Li Ion
    batteries she has.

    Thanks,

    Well, 12-18 months is more normal. If she's using it hard, 9 months is
    early, but not out of line.

    Regardless, as I recall, that popup gives the option to disable itself.

    Really? I have gotten 2-3 years with each of mine. The charge times
    do go up, and the runtime down, but far from not-useful.

    However she rarely uses it on battery. I did get good advice here not
    to go too small on the college laptop.

    I did not see that, I will look closer before she goes back to Chicago tomorrow.

    Thanks.

    Isn't the battery normally covered by a year of warranty anyway. If you are
    getting messages to replace it you should be able to get one under warranty.
