Oh, and it's a REALLY good idea to take out the battery when you know you are going to have your laptop plugged in for a long time, helps with the battery life a lot.

Multi-variable Calc is easy. It's just methods of integration that you learned in Calc II re-taught. That's what I recall it being, at least.


oh, calc 3 has been much easier than calc 2. I'm not worried about it(heck, I'm here trying to fix a stranger's computer :-D ) what are the answers to the computer problem though?

I'll check tomorrow. I'm off to bed now.

That's weird, usually when battery don't charge, they still let you start the computer...

But yeah, if you put the battery in now and it's no longer starting, contact dell about battery. It won't be cheap but it's cheaper than a new laptop. You have a XPS so I'm assuming that it is at least a decent computer now a days. There isn't any new exciting technology out in laptop land so really no point in getting a new one. Though the i7 quad cores just came out for laptops.

I'm really not willing to invest in another laptop, especially when this one works great (when it will actually run :-b). Looks like a battery will run me $155.00 or so if I buy from Dell directly.

tell Dell that their bettery F'd up and you demand a replacement. if it's under a yr old, it should be good for warranty replacement anyways. but anyways, i bet you can talk them into sending you a brand new one for free.

That car is the reason I can't afford to buy a new battery.
