Make: Dell Inspiron 1720
I have a windows vista laptop that has started to have some odd behavior relating to power.
When the laptop is plugged in (cord to wall) and the battery is in, the laptop will shut down within a few minutes. If the computer is running just off battery it will last until the battery is low. The cord will charge the battery if the laptop has been shut down.
I have tried swapping the external cords with another dell inspiron 1720 laptop. The same issues are exhibited. (which is why I posted in the Vista forum) I am wondering if this is:
- Something people have heard of before
- Something dealing with Vista's power settings
I would surely appreciate any guidance or advice.
