Plugged up or on battery power? Battery: try removing battery and see if it does it. If it does, have the laptop serviced, could be a loose or damaged component. If it powers up and stays on without the battery, replace the battery.

Inspiron 8600 does not charge batteries. Power


hello

As you have mentioned that power supply is working fine then there can be only two things.

  1. Your charging module in the mother board is malfunctioning.And you cannot replace a particular module, you have to replace whole motherboard for it.If your system is under warranty Dell will do it for free.
  2. The connector which connects the battery with the mother board is gone.
hope this will solve your problem

Thank you.

My computer is locked in the BIOS Setting


I assume you have already tried the Dell site & searched (using eg google) for 'Inspiron 8600 BIOS reset' so I'll not bother repeating your efforts.

Since you posted here, I can only assume you have been unable to find any information about special power-on key combinations or any small holes underneath (where a paperclip can be used to reset the BIOS) ... in which case your only option is to dismantle the laptop, locate the BIOS battery and remove it for 30 seconds or so.

To find out how to dismantle the laptop, search (google) for 'Inspiron 8600 BIOS Battery replacement' ....

Start by cleaning the fan and heat sink. Dirt or dust build up can cause them not to work as efficiently as they should. If cleaning doesn't fix it, you might consider replacing the fan and heat sink or purchasing a cooling pad.
