    I had to reload Vista to my Inspirion 6000 ( that is upgraded) when I reloaded it, the charging was fine. When I started the windows update the charging stated plugged in but not charging. The battery has been charging to 100 percent in the past, The plug works the laptop but the charge will not work. Could this be a driver issue or upgrade probelm, Please help!

    I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 as the system boots I get an error message that states system unable to charge battery but it works fine on A/C adaptor..... help

    startup error- cannot recognize ac adapter, and does not charge battery. A different power supply / adapter does work just fine, and as it is one that I borrowed, my question is, which replacement adapter should I buy ? I'm reading rumors that aftermarket solutions other than Dell originals might yield the same problem fresh out of the box- ie not be recognized by my computer. The ac adapter that crapped out on me was the Dell original, however.

    Are all these machines running Vista?

    If so it might be the OS issue.

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000, and so does my wife. One day coming back from the airport, the power adapter cord(the end that plugs into the laptop) was hanging out the door and was dragging on the ground. Well the end was unusable and I was out looking for another AC adapter. Dell wanted $80 for a new one, but I found one on ebay for $40. But once I got it, I found that it would power my laptop, but wouldn't charge my battery. I thought, I know the old one works, so I cut the end off the ebay one and wired it onto the original one but ended up with the same result. Called the ebay seller and turns out these AC adapters are dell seconds. They claimed to test them and offered to send me another one and did so. By that time the new one from dell dropped to about $40 so I just bought it too anyways. The new dell one worked and the second one from the ebay seller did the same as the first one he sent me. I found out that the dell laptop wont charge the battery if the supply goes below 19.5V. By me hacking the other end on the original AC adapter, didn't result in the best insulated connection from the other wires. Also, if anyone know anything about AC adapters, is that they have a "Step Down Transformer," and the company that makes them, low balls the windings so that if they are off on the voltage, they are under, and not over, thus not frying the more expensive laptop. My suggestion to you is to just pick up a new AC adapter from dell. Also, the rubber coating on the cord is pretty soft and splits easily.

No, this was one of the few laptops that dell did not recall the battery on and I am having the same issue and so is my sister. Ironically, both of our warranties ran out a few months ago. Dell said that they would gladly assist us with our problem for $75, but when we asked for a gaurantee that if we paid the $75 that they would find a solution, they said they couldnt do that.

If your computer won't charge the battery, but the battery charges fine in another computer, and you are sure that the charger is good, then your problem is probably the DC power jack. If you wiggle the end of the power cord where it attaches to you laptop, and it starts charging properly, then the DC power jack is broken.

Dell inspiron 1300 does not see the battery


remove battery check if laptop works fine with ac adapter, if not then download the latest bios version first if fails then replace ac adapter. If laptop works fine with ac adapter. but cannot work with battery alone, download the latest bios then charge the battery for 6 hrs. if still batt not charging then replace batt. but as you mentioned you already replaced the batt and your still getting the same issue. replace motherboard.

Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not,
Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not,
Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.
