I think I have a problem, darn thing wont keep a charge. Only get fifteen minutes work out of it, only using Office.
Any ideas for where to get a cheap replacement?

Cheers all

I bought a Sharp Laptop from PC World, never used the battery for the first couple months, and I've only ever once had more than 10 mins - nowadays, a full charge will JUST (well sometimes) let the machine boot before it dies. At the time I bought the machine, I was actually working there (10% staff discount was the only reason the price was right) so I knew I'd be wasting my time complaining - PC World considers batteries to be a consumable (apparently).
