    and apparently it is the Kensington power adapter, not your laptop, that has short circuited. Looking over the web, it seems that this is not uncommon.

    The kensington adapter powers up. LED comes on. The laptop battery indicator recognizes the power, but the battery doesnt actually charge, it just stays at its current available % without recharging.

Vscott481,

Im not sure what type of computer you have, but with the laptops I have had in the past, this is usually an indication that the battery has malfunctioned and will need to be replaced, the internal charging circuit and management system is no longer functional, or the contacts are dirty and the battery simply isnt able to charge becuase of it.

I do need some clarification...
A) Is the computer able to power up and run off of AC?
B) Does the battery have any charge at all, or does the PC list it as 0% or 100% (if the system boots)
C) If you are able to boot, and your battery is not depleted but will not charge, you shoudl follow proper battery maintenance guidlines, which includes cleaning the battery contacts that connect your cells to the laptop. Battery power is transferred through the contacts and keeping them clean allows for a more efficient transfer of power. The best way to do this is with rubbing alcohol and cotton swabs.

If this does not seem to solve a problem, you can take the system to a qualified professional and they can try and find if there are shorts in the sytem with an electrical tester.

I hope this helped,
Jem

Get a 90w adapter is the only resolution. The D810 on a 65w adapter will:
  1. Disable the battery charger
  2. Run slower due to throttling
The 65w adapter MAY charge the battery if the computer is not running (Not sure on that)

My Inspiron 1525 will run on my new Targus APA23US Universal Wall Power Adapteron but will not charge the battery.


dell power adapters have a pin in the middle of the connector that tells the computer it is 90w. If the computer does not see the pin (bent, missing, too short) the computer will assume it is 65w which is not enough to charge the battery.

I have a 90w ac/dc power adapter w/usb K33403. It has worked fine and someone tripped over the cord and the power adapter now makes a beeping sound whether it is plugged into the computer or not.


replace the adapter. They are relatively cheap and your problem is solved. Just do a search on Google and you'll find plenty of them available.
