On my Dell Studio XPS laptop, running W7 (64 bit), I receive the following error message every time I unplug the power cord from my laptop:  "Ext_framebuffer_object extension was not found."  When I plug the power cord back in, I receive this error message:  "The AC power adapter type cannot be determined.....".  I then have to shut down, disconnect my battery for a few minutes, reinstall it, and restart to get the laptop to recognize the power adapter.  Is it a bad battery or power adapter or something else? Thanks for any help.
