Dell Latitude 505 that will not run on AC

I have a Dell Latitude 505 that will not run on AC. As soon as I plug the AC adapter into the computer the green power light on the adapter goes out. The battery icon on the toolbar stays on and according to it I have less than an hour of power left.

    I have tried two different adapters, both of which worked on other laptops. It seems like there is something wrong with the AC jack in the laptop not the adapter. As soon as I plug the adapter in the green light goes out.

Sounds like a BAD adapter. When was the last time it worked in the laptop?? I would try another adapter if possible. When was the last time the adapter work on the laptop?

    Sorry, for stating the obvious. Wasn't sure if you tried that yet.

    If you think its the jack, trying gently moving the plug back and forth to try to make the connection.

    If it is indeed the jack, you may be able to replace it or even solder the connection, if it's just loose.

    (Some AC jack solder joints can loosen up over time.)



    Taking it apart can be difficult, if you are planning to repair it yourself.

I went out leaving my dell latitude D620 laptop on for hours, when i got back the screen was blank. i powered on and the lights came on and went off again


1. Check and see if the LED is on with the AC adapter, if possible, try a different Dell AC adapter (ANy D or E series Dell with a cannon plug connection should run that system Also ensure that the adapter is plugged into the wall.
2. If a known good power adapter does the same thing or if the LED goes out as soon as the adapter is plugged in to the system then the motherboard is suspect

Dell latitude 100L power light flashes green as if


It sounds like you have a bad AC adapter . When you plug it in to the outlet in the wall and into your computer , do you see a charge indicator light on the computer? I'm asking you this because even with a bad battery your computer should operate without any problems with the AC adapter plugged in.

Dell d610 wont turn on ac adapter light is green


There is a small IC that Dell solders into their power supply as well as their batteries. When this parts fails you will have the type of problem you are having now. If you do a search on the web you will find a large number o sites that discuss this. Unfortunately there is no fix other than replacing your power supply. I had to do the same thing myself for the Dell laptop I use.

Not charging


which green light?

light from the ac power adapter or the light from the battery?

if ac power adapter you are referring to try a diff power wall socket if ac power adapter still off then replace ac power adapter alone.

if battery light is off but the laptop works fine with ac adapter alone try updating the laptop BIOS.

if ac adapter light turns off when it plug to the laptop replace motherboard.

Battery has gone dead. When I plug the A/C cord in the light on the charger immediately goes out and won't charge battery.


try connecting ac adapter alone without the laptop, check if ac adapter light will stay green or blue.
try another power outlet using the ac adapter alone without the laptop check if the ac adapter light will stay as green or blue. if all fails replace ac adapter.

if ac adapter stays green or blue try connecting to the laptop without the batt, check if the ac adapter light will stay on, if yes then try connecting ac adapter to laptop with the batt plugin check if the light stays green. if not update the BIOS. if fails replace motherboard.

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.

Laptop will not turn on


Unplug the ac adapter from the back of the computer. Make sure it's plugged to an electric outlet. check if the ac adapter light is solid green. if not. then you have to replace it.

If it is solid green, reconnect it to the computer, if the light on the adapter goes out as soon as you plug it in to the system, you need to replace the motherboard. call dell to seek your options for replacement.
