Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Samsung laptop. When using it once without battery (only charger) it sudenly died. I let it rest for a while as it was hot and turned it on, some blue lights came on then it died again. I tried with the battery, and it powered on... although, it did not charge so it shut down after 1/2 hour. The charger light is blinking yellow, I can power it on, but after 1/2 minute it shuts down. I tried to let it charge for hours, but the batery indicator on the batery still shows 0. Taking out the battery the charger lights goes green, but if I turnes it on it goes weak, then dissapairs and the laptop shuts down. Sorry if there is some bad spelling, my native language is not english and I am writing on a cellphone.

I want to try a very simple thing, cause it happened to me, while I am working on my computer , it shut down unexpectedly... cause the processor is working with its full performance and no enough cooling around the laptop. so while I move to other place and also I raise the laptop a little bit from the back to let the fans (bottom of the laptop) works perfectly .
try to open it again and do so.... may be it is a so simple thing that was far from your mind like I was before... good luck

SOURCE: I have a toshiba laptop,
Change your AC charger.
It's NOT charging "When the laptop is plugged into the AC, the power meter in windows tells me that the power source is still batteries, and the battery level drops by about 1% every few hours"
That's the reason why: "battery has completely died"
If you do not change it you'll continue to "still it gives me the same low battery indication and will not turn on. "

nope, it is your dc power regulator board. you will note this happens if the battery is in or out of the laptop. that is the key test. some regulators are on the main board and some are seperate for this reason. I think the vostro though is on the main board. A little board re-work will resolve this issue after replacing some components, but this is way beyond a home user's ability.. trust me on this. Sorry for the bad news. Thanks!
