I have experinced the same issue with the Dell laptops.

My remedy was to purchase a new power supply..(This is the name of the power cord that came with your laptop). You can purchase the power cord from any computer store.

Ask he sales person if you can try the new power cord prior to leaving the store just to make sure this solution works.

I hope this solution works for you as well.

Dell inspiron M5030 won't charge, green light is


This is a common problem. It may be that the charger is dammaged. these Dell chargers have a micro thin communication cable in them that tell the charger to charge the battery. this micro thin cable can often break. Its use it to prevent the laptop battery from over charging, but if it breaks or becomed broken inside tha charger cable, then the laptop simply won't get the charge signal and the battery won't charge. If this is the case, then you will need to replace the charger with another Dell charger compatible with your laptop

Dell Inspiron E1705 battery light flashes 4 amber lights, then 1 green. The battery seems to charge.


The ambar lights are warning you the battery is becoming to dead, it means in a short time, if it has not happens now, the battery won't retain the charge anymore, it is time thinking in a replacement if you use your laptop without plug in the power outlet.

Dell Inspiron 2200 won't start


First thing I would try is to unplug the machine, remove the battery and clean the contacts on the battery and in the battery housing with a pencil eraser. Blow out the shavings and reinstall battery - the way it sounds is that there may be dirt or corrosion causing an interference between the computer and battery contacts - for charging and powering up.

Dell Inspiron Battery problem


Try this trick. Remove the battery from the laptop and make sure the ac adapter is not plugged in also. Hold the power button for 30 seconds. Place the battery back in and see if it powers on. If not let me know.

Hope this helps.

Dell Inspiron 2200 Charger Malfunction


Try to turn off the computer and remove the battery from the bottom of the notebook. Turn on the computer with just the charger plugged in. If it doesnt turn on. you may have a bad power port.

If it has no power/charging issue since that happened except that the indicator light doesnt turn on when you plug in the charger, you may just need a bios update. Click here. That's the bios update for the inspiron 2200 from dell's website. You should have at least 30% charge on the battery and the ac adapter should be plugged in so you can run it. The computer will restart and will come back normally after this. I'd suggest that you backup your files before running this.

Flashing amber battery light


Sure, this just mean your are in charging mode, but your battery is at full charge. Should your battery need charging and in charging mode the lights would be green most likely.
