Hi, im new and dont know where to post this. i have a laptop "Dell inspiron 2200" and just the other day i had it turned on and when i unpluged the powercord and it shut right down. and wouldnt turn on. "As if the battery was dead" when i plug it back in it turns on like normal. when i check the battery meter it says there is a battery and it's 100% full. so i know it's getting good connection. i tried a friends battery with the same results so i know thats not the problem.
I went to dell's site and downloaded the "Battery calibration utility" for my laptop but to install it i need a floppy drive and dont have one. I tried tricking it into thinking a jumpdrive was a floppy by changing the drive letter to A: with no luck. i'm not even sure this would fix
my problem was just sugested by someone else.
