    Does anyone reading this have any expertise with a Dell 8200? Battery was
    not charging so a new external power supply was bought, that did not fix the
    problem so a new battery was acquired. That does not seem to have resolved
    the problem. Tried to install the new BIOS upgrade and dumps out because
    there is not enough battery power. The system is not seeing the external
    power source, however, when it is plugged in, I get an orange light showing
    there is power. Can someone please help? This laptop belongs to my Doctor
    and I know for certain he is extremely frustrated with this entire
    situation. Already invested over $200 and nothing has been resolved.

    please respond to and don't let the spam warning
    deter you from leaving a message. Please put Dell 8200 Solution in the
    subject area of the email so I know to accept it.
    Thanks in advance....

    You're joking, right? Put this in your spam warning... "Reply to newsgroup only"
    Tell the good doctor to either bring it to a repair shop or send it back to Dell.
    Since you get an orange light showing there is power, there's a problem with the
    charging circuit, or a broken battery connector in the laptop. Either way, it's not
    a user repairable problem.

    Or look here for a new/used Dell8200 and swap out the hard drive,
