Dell inspiron 6000 error mesage permament battery failure detected. Replaced the battery and still get the message. Computer won't boot up


Tons of people have this problem with dell computers sadly, the motherboard is refusing it's new part. The reason they do this is so you send in the computer to their tech dept so they can make more money pretty much :p Remember, most new tech is meant to break like this, and usually leaves the tech dept in beta.

The only real fix is to replace the motherboard, or buy a new laptop.

Or you're having really bad luck and the second battery you bought is a dud too.

Since they do not make this product anymore, you can use Ebay as a good source for parts

OUCH... Might need a new harddrive or motherboard. Does it even let you go into the bios? Maybe you can do a full reinstall to save you the dough.

Ac adaptor is internittently charging my inspiron 6000 laptop


Time to buy a new. If under warranty you might be able to get a new one for free. They can be cheap on the web. Just google part number. Avoid the company, they usually charge more.

USB ports do not work, when printer etc attached, computer closes down


For the most part yes. Sounds like there is a short in the USB ports, causing the notebook to shut down. You can get around this by setting up a 'wireless print server' for your printer, which is about 120 bucks. if the laptop is already wireless compatable, which it should be. If Dell parts are running like they used to, they're probably quoting you about 700 for the part, and another 250+ for the labor. The print server will solve the printer issue, but other usb devices will not be usable on that machine without a new motherboard.

On the flip side, you can probably find a motherboard/cpu combo for that laptop on ebay for about 300 bucks cheaper then Dell wants for it, But unless you know how to change them out, you're still looking at about 200+ for labor depending on where you live. Don't accept a quote longer them 2.5 hours from a tech, it won't take longer then that if you don't have him reinstall your OS for ya.

Oh ya, new motherboard means windows won't boot properly, it's a piracy protection issue, and since SNs on the CPU will change, windows will have to reinstalled. most likely resulting in total loss of stored data with backup not being possibly unless you have another machine to network it to, since all external HDD and Flash Drives are USB.

Pc computer slow


By saying " installed new programs " what did you mean ?
Reinstalling XP after you upgraded ?

You might also try a driver update program such as driver detective. Or Manually update all the drivers. I doubt the motherboard is going bad making your pc run slow.

Upgraded hard drive, from 80gb to 250gb. I have had to reload my os twice. it appears that the bios is not recognizing my hd. a friend said that the inspiron 6000 does not do well with a hd bigger then...


I dont think we can use a hard disk of 160gb in an inspiron 6000. and make sure you bought a ATA hard drive and not a SATA drive. For the Western digital try to reinstall XP and install the device drivers before installing application s/w.

You can also pick up the batteries less expensive than most computer places at batteries plus. And yes it sounds as though it is the batteries charge is getting low, especially if it runs fine when the battery is out and you have it plugged in.
