Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook
My computer is registering the battery at 100%, if that means anything. So I don't know if it's a matter of holding a charge.
I'm not as familiar with this computer as I should be... It was a sort of family computer (used most frequently as a dvd player, sadly) while I was in college. It only truly officially became mine for Christmas. There are two lights that flash alternatively every few seconds, both of which I assumed to be battery lights. One that shows what appears to be an empty tube and one that's a square with an electical bolt in it.
I know it used to work without being plugged in. Can batteries burn themselves out to uselessness over time? There are what seem to be five small lights on the battery next to a battery symbol, none of which are lit. But I'm not sure if they ever were.
According to the power level I checked in my BIOS, the AC adapter is giving my computer plenty of power (60-something volts I think)... And the computer runs fine plugged in with and without the battery installed.
Everything else on the computer runs great, so I should hope that the motherboard and all memory sticks are functioning correctly, but I suppose I can't know that.
Is buying a new battery the solution? And is there a way I can know for sure that a new battery will solve this problem before I make the purchase?
If your laptop is working 100% on normal electricity it means your battery is corrupted. theres nothing else to look at. go ahead and purchase a new one .
