You could get a replacement battery. I doubt any retail store as the batteries ie Best Buy, Frys , Radio Shack. Might want to contact Dell and see if they have a replacement.

It is a 2 yr old laptop and batteries do go down . Meaning you have a number of times you could charge it until you will need a replacement .

To test your battery . You could do this .

Open up the command prompt. Click on type in CMD inside the Search programs and files box . Right click on CMD underneath Programs (1) choose Run as administrator. Click on Yes on the UAC window or you could press Alt and Y same result as clicking on the Yes button . Once the Command prompt opens up type in the command below

Command

cd %userprofile%/Desktop
and press <Enter>

Then type in

powercfg -energy
and press <Enter>

Note   Note
There is a space after powercfg . You should see a report called energy-report.html on your desktop once the scan is complete


Look for this inside the report :

I did access an energy-report.html and those things are not there either. Is there something I can look for in the report?
