Hi, Before you think its the normal "plugged in not charging" problem, its not. I have Dell Inspiron 14r bought in Jan 2011. Hardly over an year, the battery lasted not more than 30-45 mins and hence had to retort to connectin to ac supply all the time.
I click START >Shutdown and have to wait and wait forever (3-5minutes) for the final prompt to either restart/shutdown/log off.Its is real annoying. I am using a 2007(bios) Latitude Dell 520 laptop (purchased second hand).
I purchased my laptop a couple of months ago. I checked this morning the properties of OS (C:) and it shows- used space of 451GB and Free Space of 5.42 GB. How can that be? Thank you of your attention.
