Question about Dell Inspiron 9300 Notebook
I did a short d. test and found an error measage 1000-0146. battery light blinks fast and will not run off battery.
help!Hi - I'm having the same problem with charger / battery (not sure which one is the problem). Laptop will not run off battery, because battery won't charge (always shows 0%), but indicates that it is "charging". The laptop will shut down suddenly after varying amounts of time. Battery icon will flash a few second before laptop shuts down. Sometimes if I jiggle the AC adaptor connection to the laptop when the battery icon starts flashing I can get it to continue working.
Hi you have mentioned
"Sometimes if I jiggle the AC adapter connection to the laptop when the battery icon starts flashing I can get it to continue working."
Looks like you have a lose jack on your notebook or the adapter itself....try to shake the connections when fitted to the notebook and check weather its the adapter or the note book jack....
If you dont have experience opening your notebook and soldering or soldering your adaptor end i suggest you take it to repair center
keep me posted

Try removing the battery and see if the laptop works with the AC adaptor. If not either the AC adaptor is bad or the motherboard is defective.
If your battery LED flashes (yellow or Amber) or is solid Yellow or Amber color, this usually indicates battery is beginning to go bad. Eventually it will not hold a charge and will need to be replaced.
As for the error message “failed DST short test 1000-0146”, this is flagging an error on your hard disk drive. This could be caused by a bad hard drive or just needs to be reformatted.
