My 11 year-old niece has a Vostro 1000 laptop with a 6-cell battery, about 2 1/2 years old, which I bought thanks to a thread on HUKD.
She's saying it doesn't work when plugged in, and the green light doesn't come on (AC Adapter). Is there any way I can determine which needs replaced (battery, adapter or both)? From reading around I'm not too sure.
Also, it has a 3 year on-site warranty (still in warranty), dumb question time, does the warranty cover it? Naturally, I have my doubts, they would probably say it's wear and tear.
Her mum isn't interested in computers, so it's down to Auntie to sort it out :D
Thank you :)
