    You have to send it back to Dell. That's what I had to do with a CPi. It sucks and it costs money.

    I looked around for about two weeks with no results.

    you have to unscrew the case so you can get to the battery. It is in there.

    very carefully. The piece holding the battery down is probably very thin metal, so it should "bend" out of the way. Just don't bend it to far, or you will end up breaking it.
