Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
I have bought a replacement battery for a dell latitude d510. It worked wonderfully - until today. Now it will not charge, and it doesn't matter what charger I use, and I have an a/c cord and also a docking station. Neither works. I tried my old battery to see if it was responding the same way, but it is seen by the system and tries to charge, though it is at the end of its own life cycle.
When I checked the power settings in Control Panel, the listing for my battery says it is "idle" and 0% charged. How do you get it out idle state? I have tried to flash or reload original settings in BIOS and no luck...
THanks in advance!
After over two weeks of looking up this same problem online, I have came to this conclusion. Dell does not stick by their product. I have toshiba, HP, and sony in the past 7 years. Those three companies still help you problem solve even if the warranty is out. Of courese you pay to have it fixed; however, they help you. Dell, what do **** after your warranty is out. YOu have to pay them just to talk to them about the problem and try to find out what it is. I am going to apple.

Remove the battery and locate a small button on the battery press the button and you should see some indicator lights light up. It will tell you if the battery is holding a charge by how many indicators lightup.
No lights, the battery is dead. Either case try reseating the battery and charge it again.
If the lights are flashing the battery is shot.

I had the same problem with my Dell Inspiron E1705. I thought it was my battery as the AC adapter still operated the computer but the battery was VERY DEAD. I bought a new battery, it wouldn't charge - stayed "idle". I sent it back thinking the battery wasn't compatible because I didn't get it from Dell. I ordered another battery from a Dell source - same problem. It ended up being the AC adapter after all. The sad part is that I was able to charge up the original very dead battery as well. The AC adapters are very cheap online - far cheaper than the batteries.

For most cases it is a motherboard problem.

I have recently had this problem on my studio 15 laptop. after hours of searching on forums and trying different methods. i took out my battery. cleaned the connectors to the computer and battery and slid it back in making sure the connection was tight. put in the av power cord and it seemed to hold its connection. i hope this method can help anyone out there experiencing this problem. I think dell need to rethink their battery method. knew i should have paid that extra for a sony! good luck all!!
