Dear Dtoiders, Who knows their computer/laptop stuff?

   0
Alright so a good friend of mine comes to me today saying "Hey Ian, you play video games, you're good with computers, you're a computer science major.. Can you fix my laptop?" So of course I go uhhhh I'll take a look at it. Here's the dealio, Her laptop runs just fine when it's plugged into, but when you unplug it from the wall and it switches to battery power, after about 5 seconds it just completely turns off. Any thoughts? I'm assuming someone in this wonderfully immense community might be able to come up with something, and I dont...really...belong..to any PC troubleshooting..communities..

PS it's a dell ispiron 6000 that helps any. It's not a battery option or any kind of 'power saver' thing I could see anywhere (plus what kind of an option doesnt let you use the battery at all essentially). I figured maybe a bios issue since it basically isn't using the battery at all, but don't know much about bios or what to do there.



i only know about bios..hock.

ha thanks guys
