    there is nothing wrong with the battery. the problem i that the computer does not boot up on powerand the keyboard is frozen dead. the computer operates fine on battery which is being exhausted because no power is getting to it.

    The problem was apparently caused by memory failure which I fixed. All is working fine. Thanks for the help.

If it is an older battery it probably needs to be replaced. Sometimes when you remove a battery while the computer is running it makes it "freak out". Not mch you can do to test this except try a new one.

    The computer needs to go back to the manufacturer or to a professional because apparently the leads that charge the battery have become faulty

I have a dell inspiron 1150 when i connect the charger the battery and the power light keeps on blinking and nothing happens oh turning the power button


Sounds like the adapter is being overloaded ... Dell is one of 2 or 3 manufacturers using a 3 wire adapter plug jack. And ... well ... lets say they can be problematic ... it's a great system but very sensitive to battery malfunctions. I suggest you remove the battery then pug the adapter in ... if all is OK then have the battery checked

The CMOS batter could have been solder onto the motherboard. In most laptops, the batteries are not removable. They only power the BIOS settings (time, date, computer configuration, etc.) They do not power the LCD.

Sounds like you have something else wrong.

A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective.

Dell Inspiron 1150 - Wont boot & nothing on screen ??


The fans on this unit are thermostatically controlled and only turn on when the predefined processor temperature is reached, so upon turning the unit on It will spin up too full speed and then seem to shut down until it is needed.
If you are getting no beep tones and since you have already tested your memory, I am forced to assume that either your processor has retired or your cmos is wrong, Since you sound like you have already opened the unit then locate the clear cmos jumper/switch on the board and clear your cmos which will reset to defaults.....if you still have the same problem then I reccomend trying a different processor.
