in your position I would contact support again and inform them of when you purchased the notebook from the dealer and offer to provide proof by faxing them a copy of your purchase invoice. Make sure you get a "call number" and note the names of the people you speak to; this could be important at a later date.

I have had that EXACT problem, and before reading this thread, thought it was something that both me and my boyfriend (on seperate machines, purchased only a month apart) were doing.
It seems as though there is a situation with the battery that has been resolved for some, yet not for others.
I purchased my computer september 2006, and the battery died october 2007. (exact same scenario with my boyfriends notebook) A little too coincidental?
However, 5 months down the road, after using it on only A/C power, the computer would not even turn on for longer than a few minutes.
All you have to do is take out the battery and it will work as a fabulous desktop computer.
I was told there was nothing I could do because my battery is not covered under the recall and is out of warrenty.
lesson learned: don't buy lenovo.
I'm waiting to hear back from Mark, however, expect to hear the same conversation as I've had with many tech reps.
No warranty? No recall barcode? no luck.
