Dell inspiron 1501 cannot indentify ac adapter


try this first. drain the flea power. remove batter and ac adapter. press and hold on the power button for 10 seconds. plug back ac adapter and battery. go online to http:support.dell.com then download the latest bios update.

once you reach the dell support site select on support for home users. then drivers and downloads. enter the service tag.

when the list of drivers and updates are listed make sure you selected the correct operating system. look for the BIOS then download it via browser. (do not download the manager)

after the download run or install the update.

If all fails. try a diff ac adapter if same problem message appears then replace the motherboard. else replace ac adapter.

I had the battery not recognized on boot up. then


the Dell AC adapter has a sensing pin so the bios can determine the wattage of the adapter. If the system cannot ID the adapter, the battery charger circuit is disabled. You'll need a functional DELL ac adapter to get the battery to charge

Dell inspiron 1501 work fine turn off last night now wont turn on


You mentioned trying a different battery, try a different AC adapter.

When plugging in the ac adapter to the wall, see if the POWER LED comes on on the adapter, then when you connect it to the computer, see if the LED stays on.

If the issue occurs with both AC adapters (No battery installed) then the motherboard has failed. If one ac adapter works but the other doesn't then the adapter is bad
