The kids and my other half are Using Dells here at home (studio 15's) about 2 years old or so and the message came up saying basically "You need a new battery".on all three

Now then ... Rightly or wrongly I was under the assumption that these would run ok provided that they were plugged in but it seems that two are increasingly causing problems at start (having to wait some minutes for the screen to power up etc)

Hints and tips needed for running them a while longer before either the batts or machines are replaced.
