Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
Battery wont get full charge. laptop wont turn on without being plugged in. manual only refers to making sure time/date are set correctly to make battery work.
Take the battery out and start the laptop up on AC power only, set the correct date, time and time zone, shut down the PC and remove the power jack, wait about 30 seconds then power it up on AC only again, If the date and time has changed the the cmos battery has run out and needs replacing. If it keeps date and time the problem is the battery or the powerboard controller that charges the battery is defective. If the battery is getting a charge, run the battery completely out of charge, then try to charge it again.
Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
