    I have been given another old Dell Laptop by members of the local Freecycle Group which I intend to lend to club members who need it to type articles for the club magazine. This one is a Dell Inspiron PP12L but for some reason the previous owner has removed and no longer has the battery.

    I thought all laptops must have a battery to operate, even if the battery no longer holds any charge. But for awhile this laptop did work perfectly then all of a sudden the display not longer displays apart from a vary faint image. I doubt it is the fault of Windows XP installed as I can hear it being activated on start up, yet it does not even show any CMOS info on start up.

    Any suggestions or is it due for the dustbin?
