Dell Inspiron E1705, Faint Black Screen on Battery Power

I have two batteries for my Dell E1705. The first is standard with laptop purchase. The second I purchased 1 1/2 years ago. While using the newer battery, my laptop screen went blank (black with barely visible screen). I can hear a poping/sizzling sound just before it happens. I close screen lid, reopen, log on and it work for a few minutes and repeats the same problem. This only happens when I'm on battery power, never when on AC power. I installed the original battery and get the same result. Additionaly, the left side of my screen steady dims within a few minutes of starting, battery or AC power.

The first thing i would do is do a bios update for the machine whilst using AC power, that may well iron the problem out, if not then there is a problem with the laptop itself i.e. a power drain, sizzling and popping noises is not good at all and could damage the machine further, remove the battery and check the connections on the laptop, dust and hair conduct electricity, it could be as simple as that, it is also a known fact that some lithium batteries are faulty and have been known to blow up whilst in use.
Go to the laptops support website to find out if they have been having problems with batteries and if there any returns proceedures

best regards

I purchased a battery from atbatt.com that said it was compatible with my inspiron 9400. It must be good because my computer will power on with it. I also purchased a new targus charger from Wal-mart which...


Hello.

Return your power adapter to Walmart and replace. I'd suggest taking the laptop with you to further test in the store with the adapter you buy. Be certain that the new power adapter is compatible with the specific Dell Inspiron notebook series that you own.

Hope this helps.

Dell inspiron e1705 did factory restore then screen went black now what do i do?


Since you did factory install, Might probably that's the recovery partition you used, Try to restart computer, if does not work, turn it off, unplug ac adapter and battery then drain residual power of laptop by pressing the power button for 5 secs, then put the ac adapter and battery again. If it still doesn't work, try to run diagnostics first if it fails then you'll need to replace a part, if it passes then you'll need to do operating system re-installation manually.

Dell Inspiron E1705 battery light flashes 4 amber lights, then 1 green. The battery seems to charge.


The ambar lights are warning you the battery is becoming to dead, it means in a short time, if it has not happens now, the battery won't retain the charge anymore, it is time thinking in a replacement if you use your laptop without plug in the power outlet.

Problems with Dell Inspiron 6000 Battery ? DELL Inspiron 6000 laptop battery is popular, why ?


You can also pick up the batteries less expensive than most computer places at batteries plus. And yes it sounds as though it is the batteries charge is getting low, especially if it runs fine when the battery is out and you have it plugged in.
