I have a Dell Inspirion 8500, it will boot up if the power cable is plugged in. It will not boot up on battery only, I get:"The computer is docked and only battery power is detected. This can happen is the power adapter is missing, the power cord is unplugged or the computer is not properly connected to the docking station.You should undock, redock, attach a power adapter or plug in the power cord.Strike F1 to shutdown." There is no docking station with the laptop. Under Harware profile, the current is Undocked. What do do? Thanks.
