Dell laptop insperion battery not taking a charge

I haven't used my Dell laptop in a while, due to my adapter cord wearing and eventually breaking at the end which inserts into the laptop. I recently purchased a new adapter cord. After a few hours charging, the laptop would attempt to come on and then power off. It is not the cord.

Does it power on at all using only the cord
You could try removing the battery and putting it back in.
How old is the system

If you had a broken cord and moved it around to get it working you could have damaged the connection inside the lap top itself
happens a lot usually around $60.00 and up to replace

New battery not charging


Some aftermarket batteries don't play well with your Laptop, the "pin-outs" may not be correct. Be sure to buy a genuine Dell replacement. I have no idea where you purchased it, but inexpensive replacements found on-line can be a problem, and, at best, will not work correctly, worst case can be a fire hazard. Return it and find another.

Inspiron 1545-my AC adapter doesn't seem to charge my battery


Check the LED Your Dell Inspiron 1525 offers five small blue LED lights on the front left corner of the laptop that display the status of various areas of your machine. The middle light shows the charge status of the battery, with a solid light indicating charging. The light changes to a blinking sequence as it nears full charge and turns off when full. Without the adapter cord plugged in, the battery LED turns orange as the charge runs down. Check the color of the light to verify charging status.
Verify Connections and Power
Start with the simplest cause and work backwards to the laptop. Use a different electric device to check for electricity from the wall outlet. Verify that the connections of adapter cord are tight and secure at the wall outlet, the brick and the laptop. Check the adapter cord's brick for a small LED that lights to indicate the presence of electricity.
Check the Battery
Battery issues can prevent proper charging, ranging from something as simple as a mis-seated battery to as serious as a completely dead battery. If the adapter seems to be functioning properly, try removing the battery and checking the small metal contacts in the laptop. Clean any corrosion or dirt from them to ensure a solid connection. Reseat the battery so that it clicks securely into place. If in doubt, try purchasing a replacement battery and see if that works.
Check the Adapter
Unless you keep your adapter cord in one place and never move it, every day use of the cord can cause the wires inside the insulating material to fray and kink. This wears them down, and can cause short circuits. The circuitry within the brick can also short out, preventing the delivery of the proper amount of voltage to the 1525. Use a voltmeter to double check that the cord is supplying the correct number of volts to the Inspiron.
Inside Problems
Internal issues can prevent a battery from charging, such as short circuits and a broken adapter port. The adapter port, the small opening you plug the end of the adapter cord into, is attached to the motherboard to carry the electricity to the various internal electronics. If this component breaks loose from the motherboard, the electricity can't go anywhere. A repair shop can fix this, as well as diagnose any other short circuits, for you.

Charger tips to small for dell laptop


A Dell Mini net book is a small and very portable laptop. The compact size makes it a good candidate for travel or just simply using around the house. Outdoor aficionados can get the most computing life out of a Dell Mini by finding a way to charge the battery outside. One method works when you are near a building while the other can be used for more remote outdoor locales

Things You'll Need
  • Extension cord
  • Solar laptop charger
  • Dell Mini power adapter

    • 1 Plug an extension cord into an available power outlet. Run the extension cord to where you are outside. Many homes also have exterior outlets. Use an extension cord that is designed for outside use. Plug the Dell Mini power adapter into the extension cord to charge the battery.
    • 2 Purchase a laptop solar charger. Solar chargers are available from several different manufacturers and may come in the form of a roll or be built into a case that closes up for travel. Depending on the charger, you may also need to purchase a Dell Mini power adapter. Some chargers work with a Dell Mini cigarette lighter adapter that is designed to plug into a vehicle's power port.
    • 3 Place the solar laptop charger in a sunny location. Open up the case if the charger is in one and roll it out flat or unfold it to expose all of the solar cells.
    • 4 Connect the Dell Mini power adapter to the power port on the solar charger. Connect the other end to the netbook. The adapter will regulate the charge coming from the solar panel and recharge the battery in the Dell Mini.
  1. Tips & Warnings
  2. Solar chargers offer less power than a wall outlet. They can be used to extend the battery life of a Dell Mini or to recharge the battery when the netbook is off.
  3. Some solar laptop chargers are relatively heavy. Take the weight into consideration if you are going to be backpacking or otherwise carrying it on your person.

Inspiron 6000-flashing battery light


Hello,

Since you said the battery is not charging, why don't you remove the battery and charge directly to see if your laptop adapter will charge your laptop. Because i for see your laptop adapter been bad that is why it is not charging your laptop.

If it did not, it means your laptop adapter is bad and will need to be replace in order to charge your laptop.

Just change the adapter as advice and your laptop will charge.

Take care.

Dell Inspiron 1000 won't turn on. It is always


Well if it is always plugged to the wall then the laptop's power jack is the common problem there. You can have a Computer Technician check it and diagnose it for you. Be careful how much you pay, if that is the problem (i'm pretty sure it has to be) you can shop for the part online (ebay is a good place to find them for around ten bucks) and hand it to the computer guy. Otherwise you may be charged a fortune to get it fixed. Next time, use a power surge between the power adapter and the wall's power outlet.
Here's is a brief explanation of what happens with the power jack. Inside of it there are two or three pieces of metal that look like thick wires and what they do is transfer the current to the laptop. Eventually they wear out and break (common cause is having your laptop plugged to the wall continously exposing it to all sorts of power surges). Hope it helps, good luck.

Laptop not turning on


If you replace the main battery and it will not charge, make sure the AC adapter is working (You can test the output with a multimeter) and make sure the LED on the Adapter stays on when connected to the system. Most likely, the motherboard has failed and will need replacement

My battery won't charge in my Dell E1705


The current bios version is A09. The bios version on your system can be found under the Dell splash screen when you first turn on your computer or by going into the bios itself. If your version is older (A08, A07, etc), you can go to http://www.dell.com and at the bottom click Drivers and Downloads. Get the 7-digit alphanumeric Service Tag form the bottom of the laptop and enter it when prompted. It will take you to the Download page specific to your computer where you can then download the current bios.

While some battery issues have been taken care of with a bios update, in my experience the issue is usually the battery itself not being able to hold the charge. On average batteries develop problems about a year to 2 years after purchasing the laptop, just in time for the warranty to run out. This means a new battery will need to be purchased. I have also run into the power adapter not charging the batter properly due to the the adapter failing or a break in the cord coming from the wall outlet or from the brick to the laptop. Verify that the power adapter is working properly.

Computer works by Battery only but not A/C cord


Your DC Jack Is Most Likely Failing From What You Describe....
The DC Jack Is The Port Where Your Charger Cord Plugs Into..
If Wiggled Enough, It Will Pry Loose From The Motherboard And Eventually It Will Begin To Short Out The Power, If Left Unrepaired, It Will Eventually Lose All Means Of Charging/Powering On Due To The Solder Being Burnt Away From The Positive Pins That Connect To The Mainboard....

You Might Want To Test Your AC Adapter With A Multimeter For Positive Power and Correct Voltage .. Sometimes A Broken Cord Will test Good If The Break Is Making Contact when testing....
So When Testing the cord... Slightly wiggle it to see if indeed there is a break in it or not...

Replacement battery for Dell Inspiron 1501 won't charge


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
