I did check around for prices and found the $99 on at Discount Electronics. I also read here that Dell made theirs so that it would be difficult to get one from anywhere but Dell. However, after reading some posts about cleaning, it occured to me I had NEVER cleaned mine! so I took the shell off and blew all the dust out -3 years worth :0 and it now works like charm! I feel so dumb. I didn't know they needed that kind of routine maintenance. Thanks for your help. I will definitely keep this site in my favorites!
