I went to upgrade this dell's bios and in order to do it you need the power cord and battery installed at 100% to upgrade the bios. I can't upgrade because the laptop does not see the battery? Anyone have an idea on how to fix this?
-I just deleted all partitions and installed a fresh copy of xp sp2 and updated it with all required updates, less the bios, and less SP3
-The battery is installed and charged. If you pull the plug it works on battery. Reseating/remounting and rebooting in any one of these combinations does not fix the problem.
-Quickset is installed
-All drivers were installed from Dell and in the correct order, all perfect
