If its only a battery, thats not bad. But if its more, I might get an Msi Wind instead.
I don't know about those batteries--do they have the LED charge indicator lights on them like most batteries? If so, see if the battery is holding a charge. If not, then it's probably just dead, not a mobo issue. I haven't heard of anything regarding the dell mini's and motherboard-battery issues.
