My Dell Inspiron 1100 has been having some battery issues recently. If any peripherals are connected, the problem only gets worse. The laptop is about 8 years old and has the original battery.
At times while using the computer on battery power, the computer dies without warning, yet the battery meter still reads about 98%. After this, the computer does not boot until it is plugged in. I checked with the Dell website about the battery light code, and the slow flashing amber means low battery threshold 1, yet the computer gives no other indication of a low battery beforehand. What should this tell me? Thanks in advance.
