    Here's my deal. I bought a Dell Inspiron 600m in Sept. 2005. It has crashed twice, which really ticked me off. But NOW, just one month after my warranty ran out....I have an even bigger problem.

    My computer will not run on battery power. It will run fine off of AC, as long as it is plugged in. But as soon as I unplug it, it powers off completely. The critical battery light flashes incessently regardless. I checked my battery and it says 100% but my BIOS reads 0%. I havent dropped my computer or gotten it wet or anything. So I am not sure what happened.

    Has my motherboard gone bad? If so, how pricey will repair be? I think it might be time for a Mac. I have had soooo many problems with my Dell. I am begining to think they are built to be disposable computers.

    thanks for any help!!!
