I have a dell mini 10 that when the battery is in and the ac adapter is plugged in it will run for a few minutes on ac power then show that it is running off of the battery then it shuts down.
I left it running just off of the ac adapter (took the battery out) last night and watched it for 2 hours before going to bed, when I woke up it was off.
Any advise?
Thanks, Matt

Your AC adapter might be bad.

See what you can find out from Dell's Support Chat: http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/chat/hardware_chat

If you don't like the customer rep you get, feel free to disconnect and try again. Sometimes they can be hard to work with.

I thought it might be the ac adapter, I did purchase a new universal ac adapter, same problem.
Thanks, Matt

Hmmm...either way, talking to Dell will probably still be your best bet. They should be able to tell you what's wrong.
