The adapter needs to be moved ever little for it to stop charging. it won't charge the laptop and sometimes i get it positioned just right for it to charge but otherwise it's maddening because it won't show it charging... i don't know what to do.

The internal become loose or broken after constant use
or you may need a new ac adapter
your best bet is to get it fixed before it worsens.
take it to a small pc repair store they won't charge as much as a major store.
the price is usually 60.00 and up
take ac adapter with you.
Please rate me

Appears to be a loose connection between the AC adapter and the computer. Inspect the port on the computer where the AC is being connected for any damaged. If available, try using another known-good AC with your computer to isolate if the problem is specific to the AC adapter. If the same thing happens with another AC, the motherboard needs to be replaced. If the warranty of your computer is still active, contact dell and request a replacement for the motherboard

Dell inspiron "plugged in not charging"


There are some troubleshooting steps for this sort of problem:
laptop plugged in not charging:

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure your dell inspiron 1545 power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

My DELL Insiron is not charging


Hello, If the battery won't charge and the laptop won't turn on but the ac adapter works with other laptops, then the problem is the port where you plugin the ac adapter. Some of the laptops has it built in to the motherboard. So you might need to have it repaired by a technician. Or if the laptop is still in warranty, you might need to send it to the manufacturer to have it repaired or replaced. But if the laptop works without the battery, or it will turn on but the battery indicator is not lighting up, you're facing one of these problems.
1. The battery itself is dead.
2. the battery bay is loose
3. the battery itself is loose
Hope this helps...

Please could you offer me free solution to my problem? my lap top inspiron 1150 won't power on , the battery is not being charged and the power icon doesn't show up at the task bar.


Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED lightup? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

My computer won't charge! The problem is that where i plug in the charging adapter that "little hole" is loose and won't keep the adapter in, ultimately not letting it charge


This is really a physical damage to the slot for the plug.
There are some tweaks that you might try to keep it there, like pushing it and holding it with something, or use scotch tape or something similar, but ultimately it might affect the life of your battery.
There's really nothing substantial you can do other than changing the power adapter.

My inspiron 1525 is not charging. Have replaced battery and charging lead and still does not charge.


Based on what you have stated, you replaced the battery and charging lead but the laptop still won't charge. What do you mean by charging lead?
Are you referring to the power adapter?

Since you already changed those two things, then the problem could be the power jack of the laptop and/or the connections inside the laptop.

Try to plug the power adapter slowly and try to wiggle it. It you feel that the power jack is wiggling, then the problem is a loose power jack that is why it won't charge. And you need to have a tech tighten that up for you.

Have a great day!

Power Problem


Some thing shorted out that capacitor, you will have to find the source . It could be you adapter or it could be that the power connector is loose and the pins shorted. Really sounds like a new system board.
Sorry.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Battery will not charge


Hi!

It's your ac adapter that is causing this issue. The ac adapter doesn't supply enough power or doesn't supply any power at all to the battery. Try to borrow another ac adapter from any inspiron system and if that works, then you need to replace the ac adapter, else, it's the motherboard.

Hope you find it helpful.

Thanks,

Karlox™ :)
