    Well I am trying to find out if my parent's laptops' batteries are in the recall but the validation won't work, I keep getting an error. So I could set on fire any minute now.

    Wow, I'm utterly surprised....that my batteries are not included in this recall.

    I was hoping I could get two new batteries. :lol:

    In other news, displays are recalled due to radiation emitted that makes men using the computers as real "laptops" sterile..... :)

    I am sick of battery recalls. I just use this rule of thumb: If you have a laptop expect it to catch on fire. This has been a message from your friendly laptop/netbook hater. Thank You :)
