My dell laptop isn't charging when plugged in. What should i do?

Dell chargers have a centre pin to allow the laptop to sense that the charger is a genuine Dell one. If the battery is not charging then:

a) Battery is faulty (old and dead)
b) Pin missing on the charger, wire broken or not original Dell device
c) Charging port on the laptop has become loose.

Hope this helps.

My dell latitude d510 is not charging and i the icon is not on it

Take the battery out and wait a few minutes. Then place it back in and see if the light to the battery charging indicator goes on.
Check the plug that goes into the laptop from the charger. Look to see if it's frayed or has exposed parts. My need a new charger.

Using a Dell Inspiron no apparent power to laptop with our without a adapter. New universal laptop charger...still light on charger goes off as soon as connected into laptop power port.

sounds like the laptop has a motherboard fault, dell laptops need to be run from dell chargers only and at correct voltage and correct amps output. the information is normally provided on lable on the base of the laptop, universal chargers do not normally work on dell laptops, would suggest you try and use original dell charger .

Dell inspiron M5030 won't charge, green light is

This is a common problem. It may be that the charger is dammaged. these Dell chargers have a micro thin communication cable in them that tell the charger to charge the battery. this micro thin cable can often break. Its use it to prevent the laptop battery from over charging, but if it breaks or becomed broken inside tha charger cable, then the laptop simply won't get the charge signal and the battery won't charge. If this is the case, then you will need to replace the charger with another Dell charger compatible with your laptop

My Dell Laptop syas that my battery is charged. But when I remove the ac power cord the computer immediately shuts down.

Hi there,

I repair laptops professionally and work on many Dells. Here are the possibilities.

1. The plugin connection where the battery meets the charging contacts in its bay where it seats are malfucntioning and the software is reading it incorrectly. To see if this is so, push the small round black button on the battery next to the 5 little dots at one end. If none of those dots light up green, the battery has no charge and the connection I spoke of above is damaged or malfunctioning beyond where you can see. If all the dots light up green, the battery is likely fine but the laptop can;t connect to its charge at the plugin.

2. The basic software (BIOS) is reading the charger/adapter incorrectly and although saying it is charging or charged, the actual charger is ruined inside in the compartment for charging the battery. Dell chargers can actually be incapable of charging the battery but still run the computer on direct current while plugged in.

3. The battery is no longer able to be charged, but is giving a false reading.

4. The DC Power Jack (into which you plug the charger) is only partially damaged and while able to power the laptop directky, cannot charge the battery. (Check to see if it is loose and woobly when you plug in the charger.

The easiest and least expensive way to troubleshoot and fix this yourself is to start with the charger. They can be had on eBay for about $20. Keep in mind that if no green lights show up on the battery, it might be your first choice and it's about the same price.

I hope I've given you enough info the help you determine your true problem.

When I plug in the power cord to charge the battery, the light on the cord goes off. I tried several charges and they work. Can charged battery on another computer and place on the dead computer and it...

There's no fuse problem with that computer, try this first, Plug in the charger to an outlet don't plug it in the laptop, if the light on the charger turns on, then the charger is working try to plug it on the computer if the light on the charger goes out there's a problem with your motherboard. Contact the tech support for that so you can get that part replaced.
To double check try to use a known good charger if it works then you'll need another charger if not, Then contact your tech support for your dell make sure you still have a warrant.

Hope this helps!

Old battery not charging plug in charger green light goes out

If the system will not power on, and the LED on the AC adapter goes out when plugged into the system, then the most likely senario is the motherboard has failed. Remove the battery, Wireless card, Drives, RAM and connect the AC adapter see if anything changes. If no change, the MB is most likely bad.
