If your laptop isn't charging, it's usually one of two problems:

1) Your AC adaptor isn't working correctly anymore. It may be faulty, or may simply have endured all the wear and tear it can handle.

2) Your battery is either dead or dying, and is no longer charging correctly.

If the problem is your AC adaptor, a simple replacement will fix the issue. If the problem is your battery, then it gets a little more expensive (batteries usually aren't cheap).

Most laptops come with software to help monitor battery life and so on. Dell, for example, have their "Quickset" software, which can tell you if your battery is operating properly or not.

If you give me more details on the specifics of your laptop, I can help more. Manufacturer/Model?

Hope that helps.

I bought a new battery for laptop and it still wont charge


Dell uses proprietary equipment. IF the laptop wont work when plugged in and it is the original Dell charger, you need to check the charger, if the charger wont work then the battery wont charge. Note that it might be the connection on the board inside the laptop especially if the cord got pulled on while plugged into the laptop.

Its plug in but battery wont charge


If your battery will not charge, you need to run a test on some components on the laptop. The battery, the charger and the laptop itself. Once you detect the faulty conponent then you replace it with a new one.

To test the battery:
1.Power off the laptop,
2.Take out the battery,
3.Insert it in another laptop,
4.Check of it will charge,

If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the problem is not from the battery, but if it does not hold a charge, then it means the battery is defective and need to be replaced with a new one.

To test the charger:
1.Unplug the charger from the present laptop,
2.Connect it to another laptop to see if it will charge.

If it charges the laptop, then it means the charger is alright, and if it does not charge the laptop, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.

To test the laptop:
1.Turn off the laptop,
2.Disconnect your present charger,
3.Remove your present battery pack,
4.Insert a well tested battery into the laptop,
5.Connect a well tested charger to the laptop.

If it powers on, then it and charges, then it means the laptop is working fine, but if it does not charge, then it means the connection port of the laptop is bad.Hope this information was helpful.

E-machines e442 wont charge when switched on, only charges when off


There is a possibility there is a problem in the DC jack to the laptop, but it would mean dismantling the computer down to the motherboard level to make the repair.

Battery wont charge and laptop wont start using


Check the pin inside the connection (end of the cord) which you put into your machine, or check if the power connection on the circuitboard is damaged (you are able to wiggle it a little bit around)

Dell computer use the pin inside the connection from the adapter to recognise if the adapter you are using is a dell adapter or not. If the pin is damaged, or you are using an adapter from another brand. You will not be able to charge, but only power your pc.

Battery wont work


The battery is dead and it won't charge or hold its charge (all rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles). You need to buy a new battery, or just use the laptop connected to the mains supply.
