It was a choice of ordering the part for $40 shipped vs finding the parts to
run it off 120 volt, driving 20 miles both ways (gas is $1.81 now) then
fabbing it up.
plus right now work (we run an appliance repair biz) is taking my time
i ran a "test" on the battery, 1 hour starting at full power on mains,
resulted in an 18% drop in battery charge. I was not running any programs,
other than the "power properties". when the screen would auto sleep i'd
click on, and close the popup saying the backup batteries are missing. that
was the only load (besides the screen) on the system. if it is dead, I will
get you your pics
Called HP this morning. shouldn't have done that, pissed me off. the spare
battery tray is no longer made, and you have to be a "authorized repair
so it's back to trolling ebay.
