Question about Dell Latitude D430 Notebook

1 Answer

Dell Latitude D430 not powering on.

I have an AC adapter that has a light on it when plugged into a power source. But when I plug it into the computer the light goes out and the laptop won't power on, and I have to unplug it for a minute before the AC adapter will light up again. The same AC adapter powers on another laptop fine. Dell has replaced the motherboard 2 times and the whole laptop once. Any ideas?

Dell latitude D505 battery not charging


Take Dell latitude D505 battery out, plug in the charger and see if the laptop works.
If it works, the battery may be the problem.
Check the AC Adapter
Check to make sure the adapter is plugged securely into the wall outlet, connected firmly to the adapter box and to the back of your laptop.

Most AC adapters have a little light in them on that rectangular box in the middle of the cord that lights up when it's getting electricity.
If that light isn't on, try a different outlet.
Check your fuse or circuit breaker box and plug a different device into that outlet to make sure there is power to it.
If it still does not light up, your adapter could need replacing.
Also check the adapter box for signs of warmth, as it will generate heat when it's plugged in. No heat means no power.

Remove the Battery Sometimes it's as simple as a seated battery.
Remove the battery entirely and clean out any dust, lint or hair that may be clogging the connectors and preventing a proper connection.
Reseat the battery securely and make sure the little locking pins that hold your battery in place are securely fastened and there is no movement.
hope this helps

I went out leaving my dell latitude D620 laptop on for hours, when i got back the screen was blank. i powered on and the lights came on and went off again


1. Check and see if the LED is on with the AC adapter, if possible, try a different Dell AC adapter (ANy D or E series Dell with a cannon plug connection should run that system Also ensure that the adapter is plugged into the wall.
2. If a known good power adapter does the same thing or if the LED goes out as soon as the adapter is plugged in to the system then the motherboard is suspect

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.

Dell latitude 100L power light flashes green as if


It sounds like you have a bad AC adapter . When you plug it in to the outlet in the wall and into your computer , do you see a charge indicator light on the computer? I'm asking you this because even with a bad battery your computer should operate without any problems with the AC adapter plugged in.

Plug in the AC power cord, remove the battery, and try powering up. Anything? Any lights?
Remove power cord, hold in the power button for 30 seconds, then try plugging it in again and powering up without the battery. Any change?

Ac adapter not recognized appears on the screen...how do i fix this?


Sounds like you may need a replacement for the adapter.

Can you borrow one for the identical model?

Check and ensure that the power requirements for the laptop are matched by the output voltages on the ac adapter.

Good luck

Not charging


which green light?

light from the ac power adapter or the light from the battery?

if ac power adapter you are referring to try a diff power wall socket if ac power adapter still off then replace ac power adapter alone.

if battery light is off but the laptop works fine with ac adapter alone try updating the laptop BIOS.

if ac adapter light turns off when it plug to the laptop replace motherboard.

Laptop will not turn on


Unplug the ac adapter from the back of the computer. Make sure it's plugged to an electric outlet. check if the ac adapter light is solid green. if not. then you have to replace it.

If it is solid green, reconnect it to the computer, if the light on the adapter goes out as soon as you plug it in to the system, you need to replace the motherboard. call dell to seek your options for replacement.
