Battery not recognized

I have a Inspiron B130. My computer won't recognize the battery. When I look at the battery info it says that there isn't a battery even though the battery is clearly plugged in. Is there a way to fix this problem besides buying a new battery.

If the battery is beyond charging, it might not be recognized but, all that I've seen could recognize it . There are 6-8 terminals on most batteries. 2 of them close the circuit indicating a battery is in place. If you have access to another battery that is made for your computer, try it. If you still don't have a battery indicated, you could have a problem in the charging system or the bios.

It sounds like it is a hardware problem, which hopefully is just the battery. Just to rule out a software issue, though, you should go into the BIOS when you start up the computer (it should say "press F2 to enter setup", or maybe DEL or F10 or something else). Most dell laptops will show in the BIOS if there is a battery installed - see what it says. If it does show one, but Windows doesn't, you have a software problem. Otherwise, I would try a new battery.

My Dell Inspiron B130 won't turn on. The battery light blinks yellow twice then green, but that is the only thing happening.


Hi,
Take the battery off completely and drain the flea power from the laptop by holding down the power button while the battery is off. Hold down the power button for about 15-20 seconds to ensure no power remains on the laptop. Check if your battery has a drain button too. Drain the battery and place it back on the laptop.
Charge it for about 30 minutes before you turn it on. See if it works.
Post here if you need further help.

I have a Dell Inspiron B130 Laptop that I'm trying to connect wirelessly. It's not recognizing our home wireless network but my husband's laptop does. What can I do?


Hi,

First of all make sure that your antivirus software firewall is not blocking it.
I suggest you uninstall all the antivirus softwares your pc has completely first and then restart your pc and see if your laptop recognizes the wireless internet.

let me know the result.

Thank you for using fixya.

Computer won't accept a compatible replacement battery for Dell Inspiron 6400


This could be due to a defective battery even though it is new. These batteries are what are called smart batteries. They have circuit boards mounted inside the battery pack that aids the computer in recognizing the battery as well as sending functional information to sensors in the laptop about battery health and performance. Try re-installing the old battery and see if it recognizes the old battery. if it does, the contact the company you purchased the battery from and let them know the problem. If the computer does not recognize the old battery anymore, there may be a problem with the charging circuit on the motherboard or the power adapter on the motherboard.

My computer will not recognize the battery. Runs OK on AC.


Since the system is not seeing the batteries the apparent fault is the motherboard connection for the battery. If under warranty , contact Dell, in not, you can try and purchase a replacement motherboard on EBay.

SYSTEM DOESN'T RECOGNIZE NEW MEMORY MODULE


Memory modules must be the correct type and speed, and be within the specifications for the laptop. Just because it fits in the slot doesn't mean it will work.

The Dell inspiron B130 has 2 slots. Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. if you tried to insert a 2GB module, it will not work.

If the module is within these parameters, remove and re-seat the memory, and try swapping the modules from one slot to the other. It may be a bad slot.
