Help with my Laptop (XPS M1530) battery

  Candre168 19:35 13 Nov 08

I just turned on my laptop and it said that the battery in my laptop is running out of it's lifespan.

I know this happens eventually, but I've only had my laptop since February this year.

Is that normal? It seems to have died pretty quickly.

I don't know what lifespan Dell give you for the battery, but a few other companies will only guarantee them for six months.
