The fault most likely is the power connector on the laptop, it should be repairable, it may only needs resoldering or at worst replaced.
When the laptop is on charge there is a LED (light) that is illuminated, try wrggling the power connector plug to see if this light comes on or flickers. If this is the case then the connector needs repairing.
If the light doesn't turn on or flicker then the problem is more serious. Repair costs may be expensive and it may be better to buy a new laptop.

Dell PC losing battery very fast


turn off the computer , then remove the battery . reboot system and try rebooting the notebook with the AC adapter only.
this is to ensure the Ac adapter is working fine, and if it is, it should be charging the battery properly when its installed.

now, turn off the system again. re install the battery and try booting it up with the battery only

if the battery hasn't enough charge, then attach the AC adapter. If you have allowed the computer to charge the battery (while the computer is powered off) and it is not charging the battery, then you need to replace the battery definitely.

you can get a new battery (if you are in North America) from

Don't think as a battery error, if you can use without the battery ,pls check with ac adapter without battery.because there may be a short circuit with charging unit or power side, you have to test before blow up the unit. if blow up chip or mos fet, it will be hard to repair.

shut down computer - unplug power cord from laptop - remove the battery from laptop - plug Ac adapter into computer and Ac outlet (wall)
turn on computer
if computer does not turn on, replace the AC adapter and cord - then place battery back into computer
plug in new Ac adapter and cord - recharge battery - if orange light stays on after 4-6 hours of charging battery, you need new battery as well - replace battery, charge it up and it should be fine

if you have attempted these steps before and no change occurs, then you may have issue with power connection in computer - locate a service centre to replace power connection on computer

My dell inspiron 1501 won't charge when it's plugged in it works for awhile then it seem to loose contact and the battery runs down fast.


It would appear that there is a motherboard issue with this model laptop from Dell. Below is a link to the discussion thread for the problem you described. Unfortunately, there is no current solution for this issue - short of replacing the laptop.

Hello, if your battery isn't charging it might be the AC adapter that is defective, although it might be the battery as well, I can only provide you with english or spanish support, but if it works for you, please try to swap your AC adapter with a known good one from a friend or another computer, please check if the battery will charge, if it does, the AC adapter will need to be replaces, the best way to do so will be to contact Dell Support.

Battery will not charge


It's your ac adapter that is causing this issue. The ac adapter doesn't supply enough power or doesn't supply any power at all to the battery. Try to borrow another ac adapter from any inspiron system and if that works, then you need to replace the ac adapter, else, it's the motherboard.

Hope you find it helpful.
