Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

1 Answer

No power for laptop Inspiron 1501

My battery has been wearing down, and not lasting very long anymore, we get a message the battery is not recognized. Now the other day the critical battery warning came on, so we plugged in the ac adapter, but it was also not recognized, and finally it shut down. Now we can not power up at all. The adapters green light comes on, but nothing from the laptop.

    I've already done that, and nothing the battery was not holding a charge anymore so most times we just used the adapter.

The adapter could be faulty or has failed slightly and is below the operating limits. This means you probably need to replace the power adapter.

Dell 1501 inspiron does not recognize adaptor and will not charge. I am on second adaptor


If you are using a second adapter, then the problem could the battery or the power jack where the adapter is connected to.

First, try removing the battery and connect the adapter to the computer and to the wall socket. Turn the laptop on, and if it works, then the problem is the battery.

But if the laptop did not turn on, try slowly wiggling the adapter connector while it's connected to the power jack, if you find it loose, then you just need to contact a repair tech to tighten it.

But if the power jack is tight, but still the laptop is not charging, then this laptop needs repair.

Have a good day!

I had the battery not recognized on boot up. then


the Dell AC adapter has a sensing pin so the bios can determine the wattage of the adapter. If the system cannot ID the adapter, the battery charger circuit is disabled. You'll need a functional DELL ac adapter to get the battery to charge

Dell inspiron 1501 work fine turn off last night now wont turn on


You mentioned trying a different battery, try a different AC adapter.

When plugging in the ac adapter to the wall, see if the POWER LED comes on on the adapter, then when you connect it to the computer, see if the LED stays on.

If the issue occurs with both AC adapters (No battery installed) then the motherboard has failed. If one ac adapter works but the other doesn't then the adapter is bad

Replacement battery for Dell Inspiron 1501 won't charge


If your old battery was doing the same (not charging), then is is because the charger is not charging the battery. Do you have a friend with a Dell laptop? Maybe you can use a borrowed charger to test and see if it will charge the batteries. To answer your question , no Dell does not have anything built in to prevent you from using a 3rd party battery.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
