How can I remove a laptop battery from a Dell Inspiron? I use it with the adapter and the battery gets so hot I want to take it out.

Removing the battery?

by alxcsby In reply to Dell Inspiron ...

You should be able to remove it from the bottom of the computer.
But, I'm not positive that the connection is complete without the battery. That is to say, I suspect if you remove the battery, the power won't work, regardless of the adapter.
Give it a shot and see. But, I'd suggest blowing 20 bucks on a little lapdesk. I have one, and it's nice. Plus I've heard rumours that laptops aren't great for the plumbing.

re: Removing the battery?

I am new to notebook and this one was given to me because a notebook was on my wishlist, next time I share a wish with someone I'll be more specific. It's a PII with a 6gb harddrive and other old stuff. It works but I want something that will support office 2003 and I do not know if it's upgradeable, how much can I go up, and will I end up spending $800 on it??? Oh well, 98se works.

I never even thought about it not working if I removed the battery. Guess I'll just get a lapdesk like this one: http://lapinator.com/. A young friend of my daughter's told me that laptops affect fertility but at 56, and female, that's the least of my worrys.

It should run wothout the battery in

by bincarnato In reply to re: Removing the battery?

It should run if the battery is removed, I haven't ever seen a case where it wouldn't, unless there is a hardware problem. That being said, there is usually a slider button on the bottom that will release the battery and it will slide right out. The are now recommending against putting them on your lap and working, because of folks getting burned. Hence calling them notebooks, not laptops anymore. It should be able to run Office 2k3, the biggest limitation would be memory. What is the actual model or service tag off of it? If you go Dell.com and click on support, enter the service tag, and then you should have links to the manuals. I don't know what a memory upgrade would run for this, but if you go to crucial.com, they have a utility that will scan and then recommend memory upgrades for you.

"now recommending against putting them on your lap and working, because of folks getting burned"

That is why I want to remove the battery.

It is a Dell Inspiron 7000 with only 64mb of memory so it won't install Office 2003 but I have a cd of Open Office and can save files as .doc, copy n paste to an email (webmail), then copy n paste to an office document. It would not recognize my USB.

I did go to crucial and memory upgrade is only $25 but laptop/notebook will only take 128mb. I wonder if I can remove the present 64mb and have 2 128mb's? I haven't been to Dell yet.

Here is a link to a battery recall that Dell has. If you haven't looked into this yet, that could be why it runs so hot.
