I came across the following Dell article related to bad grounding using Belkin surge protectors: "Alert!! System battery voltage low" error message is displayed on a Dell™ Dimension™ 5000, 8200, 8250, 8300, or XPS computer"
I'm getting the same message on my Optiplex (and am using a belkin power strip). Does anyone know if it's the same issue or do I reallly need a new battery? (No ref at all in manual about a battery/location/type, etc.????) The computer is only about 6 months old.
i am from a company with about 500 optiplex machines, some of which are gx280's. i have found on about 6 machines they are giving a message of a low battery, i will keep on looking into this.
