Dell recommends the customer review specifics about the update to determine if it applies to your system. The update contains changes that impact only certain configurations, or provides new features that may/may not apply to your environment.

Important Information

WARNING: This program takes approximately 10 hours to run! You should run this program at night. 1. Connect AC power to the system. 2. Ensure that your primary battery is installed in the system. **Note that this program can not calibrate a battery in the secondary position (if available on your Inspiron)** 3. From a Windows DOS Prompt, run the BATRCAL program. 4. The program will run but will not provide any messages, feedback, or indication that anything is happening. You may close the DOS prompt. 5. Leave your system powered on overnight. Running this program will result in a forced recalibration of the main battery. The forced recalibration will charge the battery to a full state, then internally disconnect the AC power and fully discharge the battery, then recharge the battery. This will cause a suspend of the system when the battery reaches a discharged state, but the battery will be recharged.
