Question about Dell Inspiron Computers & Internet
Dell Inspiron E1545, I get a Black Screen when i use Battery Power Posted by Guest on 10/29/2012 Details Dell Inspiron E1545 operates fine under ac power, but when I unplug or start with battery power the screen is black, i have checked update and even did new os, but still black screen when using battery power. Just did full system restore and still the same results
If the battery is good, mine died after 4 years, check the settings in Power Options, look for dim when on battery power. Increase the % to Max or 100%. see what happens. Still have problem consider replacing Battery.

the first thing i would do is do a bios update for the machine whilst using AC power, that may well iron the problem out, if not then there is a problem with the laptop itself i.e. a power drain, sizzling and popping noises is not good at all and could damage the machine further, remove the battery and check the connections on the laptop, dust and hair conduct electricity, it could be as simple as that, it is also a known fact that some lithium batteries are faulty and have been known to blow up whilst in use.
Go to the laptops support website to find out if they have been having problems with batteries and if there any returns proceedures

You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp.
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.
Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

sounds like your charging circuit isn't working or the adapter isn't putting out enough power or amprage to fully charge the battery, or you battery went bad. if the charging circuit is bad then so is *********** board, time to burry the system and buy a new one

check the light on the power supply that you are hooked up to. before you plug it into the laptop see if there is a green light when the plug has power from the wall. if you see a green light on...good. it means the power supply is responding correctly so far. if you get no green light, then your transformer is out in the psu. if you get a green light and plug in to the laptop and the light goes out, one of two things could be going on. first there could be a short in the psu like the previous tech said, the second more serious issue could be the power controller on the motherboard. they've been known to go out. like the tech before said. try another power supply if you can. but if you are getting a green light on the power supply before you plug it in...there may be another problem with it.
