This laptop is about 1-year old. All of a sudden, the battery stopped charging. The laptop works fine when it is plugged in. I thought the battery died, so I bought a brand new Dell extended battery; unfortunately, this did not resolve the problem. I believe it might be the motherboard (based on other blogs, posts). Anybody out there ever do this kind of fix? If so, was it successful? Any words of wisdom before buying a new motherboard, etc?

If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.
should find out why the original charger stopped working in the first place... was it a faulty mother board really.
anyway if the ratings on the charger you bought are for that laptop indeed, then it should power up the laptop minus the battery. ofcourse if you put in charger minus battery, dont expect it to show the charging led..just try to power it on
Hello there. The Inspiron 1510 was released almost 5 years ago. If your system is more than 2 years old, then perhaps you will have to replace the battery. Battery for the most part, will only last 1 to 2 years. As for the battery, try connecting an external USB keyboard. If its working, then you need to replace the laptop's keyboard. Hope this will help.
Get a new battery. The life span of a laptop battery is typically only 1-2 years. Check to see if it's still under warranty. If it's not the battery, then it's likely the power converter on the motherboard. Again, check your warranty to see if parts are still covered.
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
