… Mais avec un prix imbattable, la batterie made in RPC arrive avec un connecteur très très épais !

Finalement il m’a fallu me résigner à forcer très durement l’intromission avec deux paires de pinces !!!

Barbare mais efficace ! C’est le contraire de out ce que j’ai enseigné pendant des années : “le connecteur approprié doit toujours s’insérer en douceur” Ben là … NON !

Finally, I had to resign myself to forcing the intromission very hard with two pairs of pliers !!!

Barbarian but effective! It’s the opposite of what I’ve taught for years: “the right connector should always fit smoothly” Well there… NO!

Hallo, ich habe alles nach Anleitung durchgeführt, allerdings kommt eine Fehlermeldung, dass der Akku nicht akzeptiert wird, da kein Original Ersatzteil.

Den Haken im Bios bei Adapter Warnings habe ich bereits entfernt. Hat jemand eine Idee?

Hallo Thomas, wo kommt denn die Fehlermeldung? Im BIOS? In deinem Betriebssystem? In einem bestimmten Programm? Was läuft denn auf deinem Dell?

Fabian Neidhardt -

Geht mir auch so: Fehlermeldung im BIOS auf Windows 10. Ob ein BIOS-Update das Problem lösen würde weiß ich nicht, weil ich dafür 10% Akkuladestand bräuchte.
