I've got a problem with a battery in Amilo. After my grandfather's death, the notebook was not in use for a year, and after that, when I got it, I noticed that it is not working when power supply is disconnected. I have opened a battery and it was damaged inside. It was 3 years ago and I've got still the same problem, I can't use my notebook when it's disconnected, it must be "charging" all the time. A new battery for Amilo K7610W costs >100$ in Poland (even not original), and as a student I don't have that money. Maybe there's one rich, who has an old, but working battery and could send me (I could pay for a transport), or maybe Fujitsu-Siemens facility from Augsburg which won the "Factory of the Year" award in 2005 (http://www.ameinfo.com/85882.html
) could send me a new battery as a show of advanced PR?
Have a nice day,
