I have heard about this problem with a number of Dell laptops, including the Inspiron models. The problem is that the connector for the power port may have been loosened after many years of use. This may require service from Dell on the motherboard.

Lattitude d520 I buy a new ac adapter, and the battery dont charge. I put the battery in other lattitud and it charge. I think my Lattitud d520 is not charging. What may be the problem?


If the battery and AC adapter work fine on a different D520 then you have an issue with the charging circuit on the motherboard. Could also be the DC adapter jack soldered to the motherboard.

I have a Dell D520 and it currently says plugged in not charging 0% available. I bought a new battery thinking that this was the problem about a week ago. However it again says the same thing. As long as I...


It would that you have a low powered AC adapter. The wattage output of the adapter will cause the problem you are having. Try shutting the laptop down, not suspend, and letting it charge over night. This should charge the battery. I have found that an underpowered adapter will not power both the laptop and charge the battery. You may want to check in the battery compartment for the adapter part number and see if you are using the correct one for your laptop. Please let me know how it goes.

How do I get my computer to recognized my new ac power adapter?


The computer doesn't need any drivers to recognize an AC Adapter. If you have purchased the correct AC Adapter for your laptop then it should just work when you plug it in. If it does not then my guess is either you have received a faulty AC Adapter or the DC Jack which you plug into in the back of the laptop is bad.
I am assuming your battery is dead and when you plug it in and turn it on nothing happens?
You can also try taking the battery out and try to power it on with the AC Adapter plugged in.

The Dell Latitude D610 takes a PA-10 or PA12 AC Adapter. It's 65W or 90W

For 90 watt Adapter the output voltage on your AC Adapter label should read 19.5V and 4.62A
At least that's what the Dell brand reads so it should be close to that.

My Dell D520 is not charging, but instead running on AC power... Right now it has 3% battery left, but it is not charging, instead it is working on AC power, like it does when it has 100% power... Please...


Make sure that you are using the correct AC Adapter. Dell usually supplies two different ones. They look very much the same. The difference is the amps. One is meant to be used in their port replicator. Look in the BIOS and make sure you have the setting correct for charging the unit.

Dell D520 wont power up


Hi,

Thanks for using FixYa!

I've worked with Dell tech support for a year and whenever we get this kind of problem ( No power when AC adapter is connected ) the culprit is usually loose power terminal or bad battery. If you have a spare battery and it still doesn't charge or turn ON with that. Then you've already isolated the problem. You have a loose power terminal. If your laptop is still under warranty, you'd better contact dell right away. They will give you free troubleshooting and service for that problem. If your laptop is out of warranty. You might want to just bring it to a local shop and have the power terminals re-soldered.

Have a nice day.

My dell latitude d600 is not recognizing any wireless connections. I believe the switch is at top of the keyboard and it doesn't seem to be working. Any advice


if it is not seeing any wireless networks, the wireless card may be defective, try having it tested, or check the device manager to make sure the drivers are installed correctly for the wireless network adapter
