Dell to recall 4.1 million laptop batteries - Tech News & Reviews - MSNBC.com
me either. now i gotta send in both of my fucking batteries. i hope you can take them to a Dell place and switch them, i didn't really read the article all they way, but i seriously can't be without my laptop for more than a day max. anyone know if the thing will work plugged in without the battery? i don't know and i'm not gonna try it on mine
yes it will work plugged in without a battery. you dont send your battery back until you get your new one in.
doh, i just reposted this
from the reposted thread...lol...it was the first thread i saw on this...but yea...grrrr
I got the company wide email on this earlie today... thank goodness I don't have a laptop right now!
wasn't everybody saying this was fake though because it was on some tabloid? that would be some scary shit.
Tabloids?? You mean the "Hot Sheets"?
I didn't see anything about it on a tabloid. I doubt that my corporate IT people would send out a company-wide notice without verifying if it was true first.
i think he meant the battery exploding on the table. they might very well cause a fire, but they usually arent as spectacular as that vid.
actually...my coworker called up the dell representative...and its legit...
yeah, that's the one I was thinking about. i just remember the asian guys running from the computer. probably while screaming in japanese "god damn american computers"
i think dell is based in texas :doh2:
Thats the one i was talking about. i thoguht it was funny and all 'till i saw the recall.
