  1. Hello techies , i have a dell latitude D600 and it seems to have a problem . whenever i put the laptop on just after the DELL logo shows up on the screen , a message comes up saying "Warning: An unknown AC power adapter has been detected, > preventing optimal system performance. Strike the F3 key (before the F1> or F2 key) if you do not want to see power warning messages again.".I have checked my battery and chargers on some one elses and they are perfectly working . Has any one had similar problems using DELL either D600 or any other and if yes how did you repair yours.
