Customer Question

I just heard about a battery recall and want to check on my two laptops. The one I am using is G71C000DF410 and my second is G71C000AE212. Are either affected by the recall? Thank you
JA: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your laptop, and what operating system are you running?
Customer: Toshiba Satellite Skullcandy -Windows 10 which I hate is the one I am using. The other is Toshiba Satellite harmon/kardon with Windows XL [I think]. Not sure if this is the information you want as I don't have this one connected to my wireless printer or internet but think I would prefer to be using this operating system.
JA: Have you installed any updates recently? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: No updates that I can remember, lots of "stuff" that I use to track my information and things I can't use because Windows 10 disabled my information.
JA: Anything else you want the computer expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: Just want to know if the batteries are safe, would like to be able to use older versions of my spreadsheets but that is another storey
