Sounds like you have a multiple problem going on here honestly. If you have a constant light on your charger even when its completely disconnected from the wall outlet then your charger is bad for sure, cause the light shouldn't come on unless the charger is hooked up to power.

Your battery maybe shorting out the laptop which is why it needs to be taken out for a bit before the laptop will turn on.

My suggestion would be to try a known good working charger on your laptop to make sure it turns on properly and stays on without the battery hooked up.

Then if your laptop stays on for a while then with the laptop on and the charger hooked up, connect the battery again and see if the laptop will charge up the battery to 100%. If it does then disconnect the charger and see if the laptop stays on with just the battery hooked up. It could be that the battery is drained beyond 0% and just needs a good charging. If you can't charge up the battery or the laptop still turns off to where you have to take out the battery to get the laptop to turn on then the battery is bad and would have to be replaced.

My dell inspiron 1501 will charge the battery but as soon as i unplug the laptop turns off.


It's either the battery or charging circuit on the system board. If you have replaced the battery with a new one then it's probably the system board. A new system board could run between $150 to $300. Then there's the coat of labor.

Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop, model no. PP23LA. My problem is that the system does not recognise the power adaptor/charger & will not charge the battery. The laptop will run with the power...


If the battery is not charging, the problem is most likely the battery...not the charger. Check around to see if you can get a battery replacement I think would be your best course of action. If you have a friend with a model laptop with the same battery you could always "test out the scenario" before purchasing one.

Good Luck

Inspiron 1501 charging problem


should find out why the original charger stopped working in the first place... was it a faulty mother board really. anyway if the ratings on the charger you bought are for that laptop indeed, then it should power up the laptop minus the battery. ofcourse if you put in charger minus battery, dont expect it to show the charging led..just try to power it on

Green light cuts off when plugging into laptop


Replace the charger, it probably overheat and died.
Try with a voltmeter to measure the output power (usually aroud 19 V DC)
Then the tricky part, try to power something else with the charger , something who might work with the output power (a car light bulb for exemple).
If it does work then you have a short cut on the motherboard of your laptop if it's the case replace the laptop, it's the hell of a job to repair the motherboard...
good luck

Dell 1501 inspiron does not recognize adaptor and will not charge. I am on second adaptor


If you are using a second adapter, then the problem could the battery or the power jack where the adapter is connected to.

First, try removing the battery and connect the adapter to the computer and to the wall socket. Turn the laptop on, and if it works, then the problem is the battery.

But if the laptop did not turn on, try slowly wiggling the adapter connector while it's connected to the power jack, if you find it loose, then you just need to contact a repair tech to tighten it.

But if the power jack is tight, but still the laptop is not charging, then this laptop needs repair.

Have a good day!

Are you using the original charger or another. The Dell power system will give this message when you use a 70W charger on a system that needs a 90W charger - check the sticker on the back. Also, if the plug to the main board gets just a little loose you will get this message. Be careful you are not putting too much strain at the power plug or you will need a repair soon!

Replacement battery for Dell Inspiron 1501 won't charge


If your old battery was doing the same (not charging), then is is because the charger is not charging the battery. Do you have a friend with a Dell laptop? Maybe you can use a borrowed charger to test and see if it will charge the batteries. To answer your question , no Dell does not have anything built in to prevent you from using a 3rd party battery.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
