    The dc power jack continuously blinks 4 times amber and one white. The power light blinks. I don't know how to check power supply to see if its putting out voltage to laptop.

    I removed the battery and the computer will run with the power jack plugged in so I guess this brand new, two month old dell battery is defective. Now to try and get someone that can help me at Dell.. It is hard just to find a phone number for them to report this type of problem.

Great story, but I feel your pain. There are so many times people think that just because they bought it new it works. Not true at all.

SOURCE: Dell Latitude D600 won't accept charger

Had the same problem, My other Dell charger would work fine but the original one that came with this laptop would throw an error message that the Charger wasnt recognized. None of the suggestions on the forums worked.
I held the chord by the circular flex thing at the end, and pushed in the power pin with force into the laptop, held it for a few seconds and now it works fine. If you push the pin slow and gently into the laptop, it doesnt recognize the adapter. I think the problem is either with the power chord connections inside or with the adapter inside the laptop. Try it!

2 possible causes, faulty adapter or faulty motherboard. try to update the BIOS if applicable. If this does not work, attempt to test the adapter on another laptop to confirm if it is working, or try a confirmed working adapter with your laptop. If same issue with another adapter, or if your adapter works with another laptop, it will be a motherboard problem. If the adapter fails on another laptop or if another adapter works with your laptop, you'll need to get a new adapter. Hope this sheds some light. Feel free to rate the usefulness of the information.

Dell m5110 laptop won't charge new battery and ac adapter is not recognized in bios

Try another AC cord/charger with the EXACT same specs as original. Is the battery a genuine Dell battery, if not return it? Some aftermarket laptop batteries don't play well with your computer, the pin-out connections aren't correct and MAY be a fire hazard.

You may have the wrong AC adaptor, Dell is very picky when it comes to Power adaptors, it must be original OEM Dell for the laptop to recognize it, any after market no name brand even though it has the right specs and is made for your model will power your laptop but the circuit to charge your battery will automatically be closed

Your computer sounds like it is overheating. Make sure the area where the fan blows the hot air out of is not obstructed, if there is a colder room in at your location try moving there. If your problem persists you may want to invest in a laptop cooling pad which is basically just a platform with additional fans to cool your machine. If you don't want to buy one you can just set up a normal fan to blow on your computer.

Dell studio 1535 not charging

Without testing the complete power circuit there is no way to know what needs replaced. the motherboard will most likely cost as much as a new laptop though. They are like the LCD screens. You can buy a new laptop for 4450 now days but to replace a motherboard or LCD screen you'll pay $500 to $700 not counting labor.
