SOURCE: battery not charging!

If the battery is 2 years old, then buy a replacement battery, see if it charges. Portable batteries are good for roughly 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles before they begin to fail roughly 18 months. Dell warrants the Battery for 1 year, so there is no warranty on the battery. If a replacement battery doesn't charge, then the motherboard will need to be replaced. If under warranty, Dell will fix it, if not, motherboards are $100-150 on Ebay.

SOURCE: AC adapter not recognized--battery will not charge.

there's only 2 possible issue with this problem and 2 solution.

Solution 1 update the BIOS.

(for DELL system's it will require that the battery still has at least 10% charge meaning that this solution is not going to be possible unless you have another battery that is currently charged. if so go here ) the BIOS version there is A16, if you have a different version you can update it.

Solution 2 replace the motherboard

if the problem still persist after going thru solution 1 there's only one step you need to take, you'll have to replace the motherboard for this type of problem. I hope you still have warranty for this computer, you can either have it shipped at the DEPOT or have an onsite come out to replace it.

hope that helps.

hit me back on the results.

SOURCE: dell inspiron 1525 will not charge the battery

Hello,
This problem has arised because your motherboard hasn't identified your battery. So, this is motherboard problem.
next time when you chat with the dell representatives, tell them that your motherboard is not recognizing your battery. They would arrange a pickup and would have it repaired in their center.
Good luck,

~regards,
Jegan

SOURCE: Dell Latitude D600 won't accept charger

Had the same problem, My other Dell charger would work fine but the original one that came with this laptop would throw an error message that the Charger wasnt recognized. None of the suggestions on the forums worked.
I held the chord by the circular flex thing at the end, and pushed in the power pin with force into the laptop, held it for a few seconds and now it works fine. If you push the pin slow and gently into the laptop, it doesnt recognize the adapter. I think the problem is either with the power chord connections inside or with the adapter inside the laptop. Try it!

When try t charge my battery in my Vostro 1000, I get a message " The battery cannot be identified the system will not be able to cahrge the battery


Try this first:

Use up the battery until the the screen would black out. Afterwards, reboot the laptop ( without using the AC adaptor) and the system will warn you of low battery - to press F1. After pressing F1, plugged the AC adaptor back and try rebooting.

If the above does not work, there is a Bios update from Dell that suppose to fix this problem.

Hello
If the pins are bent or out of place on the adapter you will need to buy another adaptor.

If you bought this laptop new 6 months ago the store or manufacture warranty should still be good.

Will the power cord for the Dell Inspiron 1501 fit the Vostro 1500?


AC adapter for both systems belong to D-Family 65 W lead-free AC adapter So you can use the Ac adadpter Note :- The Vostro 1500 discrete version requires the 90 W AC adapter. Without it, you will receive an error message indicating the wrong AC adapter type, the CPU speed will downgrade, and the battery will not charge.

A few months ago my Dell Vostro 1500 laptop started saying that my battery could not be detected. I bought this laptop new in October 2007 and did not extend my warranty. I bought a new battery and...


Normally the message means that the battery is bad and needs to be replaced. There is a chance the new battery you got was defective and went bad before its time.

The motherboard can be the problem, although it is not common for this to be the case.

I would try one more battery before thinking about a new motherboard, a new battery is under a $100 where a new mobo is several hundred, and usually this is a sign of a bad battery. If you disconnect the ac adapter and it stays on then it is using the battery, although it is reporting that it cannot see a charge. I would guess the battery malfunctioned and is not being able to be read by the laptop.

The battery is not charging


Normally, one of 3 causes.  
  1. Dead Battery
  2. Bad connection of battery interface on Motherboard.
  3. The AC Adapter sensing pin (In the center of the plug) is damaged (If the system cannot sense the AC adapter, the charging circuit is disabled.)
Troubleshooting:
  1. Try a different AC adapter (Any Dell D-Series system adapter is interchangable)
  2. If no difference, then next is replace the battery.  (The battery on a portable is a consumable item, and the battery life is generally 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles  around 18 months)
  3. If no change with battery or AC adapter, then the failure is the charging circuit of the motherboard.
