    Good luck. That thing's really outdated...I doubt there's any info anywhere.

    I found this I didn't do too much searching but that link says they will rebuild your battery for you, although it costs a bit.
    Next time Vehementi maybe instead of posting something udderly worthless you could take the time to look up an answer, or at least save us the time and not respond.

    Thanks Mate.


    Yeah but do I really need to spend £2000 on a laptop just to run Office :( Especially when it won't be able to play games.

    No, you certainly don't when that machine will run Windows 98 and Office 97 without any problems. Even Office 2000 might be OK but based on experience XP might be taking it a bit too far. You should certainly have Windows 98 and Office 97 lying around if you have been using PCs for any amount of time. There's no reason to junk an older laptop if its still working.

    Personally, i don't think your system is obsolete.. i have a almost similiar desktop machine. works fine with windows98SE and office 97 and can connect to internet at reasonable speed.
