Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop, model no. PP23LA. My problem is that the system does not recognise the power adaptor/charger & will not charge the battery. The laptop will run with the power...


If the battery is not charging, the problem is most likely the battery...not the charger. Check around to see if you can get a battery replacement I think would be your best course of action. If you have a friend with a model laptop with the same battery you could always "test out the scenario" before purchasing one.

Good Luck

Not charging batteries


It sounds like you are using a 65 watt AC adapter or an Auto Air Adapter.
The system needs a 90 watt adapter to charge the battery while the system is on.

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!

My Dell Inspiron 1501 won't charge


If you're covered, Dell can replace the power converter on the motherboard for you. Yes, I have experience with this and yes, that should fix it.

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
