When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Hi,i have a Dell Latitude D600 with cant boot with the charger. I can turn on the laptop using charger but it wont boot. It juz powered on like 2secs n gone off. But if i use battery to boot,then is...


That could either be a problem with the AC adapter or the motherboard.
You can try updating the firmaware of you motherboard first. Go to this link: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=LAT_PNT_PM_D600&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=
download the BIOS firmware, save it on the desktop then run it. Your computer will reboot while the BIOS is being updated, if you'll have the same problem after that, call Dell to get a replacement for your AC adapter or motherboard.

My Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop battery isn't charging, I think :(


Debby
Try booting without the battery installed. You probably will have no change but this eliminates the battery as a source of the problem. If it doesn't boot and you are sure that the external power supply is ok, you probably have a bad motherboard. At that point, the unit needs to be checked out by a pro or a really competent amateur.

Dell inspiron 1525 battery not charging properly


You could try buying a new laptop battery. Typically laptop batteries lose their luster after a year.

If the laptop is booting up to a system clock for you to enter the correct date and time, then you may also need a new CMOS battery. They're a small battery on the motherboard.

Both batteries are fairly cheap but you may want to take the laptop to a certified tech to test or replace the CMOS.

OR if the laptop is still under warranty then get Dell to do it for you.

I have a Dell Studio laptop. Will power on with


This should have a "battery check" button on the battery itself. Remove the battery and press the button. If it reveals that the battery is not fully charged, or you cannot get it to take full charge, perhaps all that you need is a new battery. If the battery is failing the check the system makes on it at boot, it won't.

  • two ways to charge the battery:
    • while the laptop is on
    • while using the laptop with a power cord, but it will take charging time when you are using the computer.
  • --if the problem persist, the battery may have a problem, called dell technical support and have the battery serial number for possible battery recall. or replacement
