Question about Dell Inspiron 640m Notebook

1 Answer

Computer does not work anymore

I connect the power cord onto my dell inspiron 640M while it is still running and then it suddenly went out. now my notebook doesnt work anymore. i also noticed that the small green light on the power adapter goes off everytime it is connected to the notebook. after i take the power cord out and reset the power, it lights back up. A power surge or burnt motherboard?

You could have a faulty adapter. Get it checked out and or borrow one to test your laptop to determine whether the laptop or adapter is at fault.

My dell 640M doesn't run on AC mains power but runs fine with battery power. So what could be the problem? Thanks.


A bad or weak adapter.It will charge the battery when off but won't run the laptop by itself.Also it could be a bad power jack where it plugs in.I would try a good adapter first to see.

Run the Dell Diagnostics Utility by pressing Fn+Power button at the same time.

If the Diagnostics doesn't come up, your motherboard needs replacement.

Inspiron 640m


Portable batteries are considered a consumable item because as they are used, there is some degradation to the battery. The average life of a portable battery is 300 to 500 discharge/recharge cycles. After that point, the battery's ability to hold a charge slowly decreases, to where it will only power the system for 10 to 15 minutes even when indicating a full charge.

If this is the Original System Battery, then you will need to get a replacement battery to have the system run for a longer period on battery only.
