Me too. Haven't used it much since Windows 7 came out. Last time I had it out the battery was toast.

The guy/shop I've used for years on computer matters said I was better to buy from e bay or Amazon .Quite a difference in price but as it's never used , never bothered .

I did look into that and read that if I used a non- dell battery it would nag that piss out of you to install a OEM battery.

Re: Windows XP dies at 12 1/2 after long illness

This was my answer: CyberPowerPC GU6035 Gaming PC - ATX, AMD FX 4100 3.6GHz, 8GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, DVDRW, 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 610, Keyboard/Mouse, Windows 8.1 64-bit at TigerDirect.com

Got tired of trying to deal with only 2 gigs of RAM and when they said no more support, figured it was time.
