Get a multi-meter and check for DC voltage at the connector the plugs into the computer. You can remove the battery and clean the contacts with a pencil eraser. If that doesn't work check your settings in the control panel under battery.

SOURCE: Dell e1705 will not charge battery any longer

The problem with your laptop unfourtunately is not anything you can simply waive your wallet at, There area on the laptop where you plug in the power Adapter has a very small connector on the inside, this connector because of the nature of the cable and being pulled around and adjusted constantly causes the solder that hold the DC connection in place becomes damaged, sometimes if held in the right position it will charge, but this will only work for so long as the connector becomes more damaged by doing so. Your options are to A.) take the laptop to someone who can solder it back on (literally takes 25-30 minutes) but finding people who are willing to do it is not so easy, i recommend smaller computer shops with Uber nerds (look for the dude with the calculator watch) Option B.) this actually is something that dell covers under warranty as its not damage done by you directly, the damage is done with general use. I would at least try to contact them to see where you are with your warranty. C.) Call Dell's Spare Parts department in the event that your laptop is not in warranty and purchase a motherboard replacement ( seems extreme but its the only way to replace that proprietary connector without soldering it back on ). There is one more problem that could cause this, and that is that the motherboard in your computer has actually started to fail and is not getting the power to the battery, in which case you Have to contact dell, or find someone who will replace the motherboard for you most likely at an hourly rate. if this is the case Go hunting for Dell E1705's with broken LCD's for sale, you will save your self a ton of money, and swapping the motherboards out is really not that difficult, any computer repair place should have the ability.

This solution addresses all the known problems I've seen and should get you on the right path.

Good luck! Stay Classy :)

You have a ground fault issue in the DC JACK.

There are escentially 4 circuits in the jack and one is not making contact.

1: Negative Charge circuit (outter ring)
2: Negative Run circuit (outter ring)
3 Positive (Inner Ring)
4: Signal (center pin)

I believe the negative charge circuit (outter ring) is not making contact internally. Typically what happens on that model DC Jack is the tension contact metal becomes fatigued, and does not touch the outter ring.

This could come from Heat causing early fatigue of the metal.
Or normal wear, the metal has simply worn out from regular insert/removal.

System restore: Click Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore. Follow all prompts.

Remove printer: Click Start, Control Panel, Printers. Right-click Printer you want removed, then left-click "Delete".

If you restore the computer to a point in time BEFORE you installed the printer, you can skip doing the remove printer option I wrote above.

Those fixes can be done one-handed (with your mouse).

You posted in the free area, so there is no charge.

SOURCE: inspiron 1420 dell says plugged in not charging

Check power adapter’s DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

If you're sure the charger adapter is OK; replace the battery in the laptop. It is weak. Does not hold the charge.

Dell Inspiron E1705 battery light flashes 4 amber lights, then 1 green. The battery seems to charge.


The ambar lights are warning you the battery is becoming to dead, it means in a short time, if it has not happens now, the battery won't retain the charge anymore, it is time thinking in a replacement if you use your laptop without plug in the power outlet.

I am having the same problem


The bios can only be flashed if you have more than 10% battery charge. check if you have any other AC adapter. is the battery does not charge with another adapter then it could be a battery or motherboard fault. Try another good known battery, If even a good known battery fails to charge then its a motherboard issue. Call technical support and get the motherboard replaced.
Rate if useful.

I just replaced the battery for a Dell Inspiron 1150. Does the battery need to charge? I'm getting a yellow light when I try to turn it on. I ordered the battery when the computer wouldn't boot. I wasn't...


Batteries and battery packs are generally given only a superficial charge by the factory to verify cell and assembly integrity so nearly all must receive a full charge before their capacity is reached.
Only once have I seen carded Li-ion cells (AAs) offered as fully charged so they could be used to replace dead cells in (for example) a camera.

Flashing battery light orange three times then one green?


Try charging your battery for about 30mins, light orange still came up it means your battery is faulty. To confirm, take out your battery and plug in power. If it turned on, i strongly suspected it's a battery faulty. You need to replace it.

You can also pick up the batteries less expensive than most computer places at batteries plus. And yes it sounds as though it is the batteries charge is getting low, especially if it runs fine when the battery is out and you have it plugged in.
