Hello,

Use a volt meter and measure the output of you power adapter. It sounds like the cable is broken right about the end. The volt meter should read the same as is printed on the label on your ac adapter. If it reads correctly then the next thing to look for is the power plug in the laptop. Try to wiggle the center pin, if it moves very much at all then the connector may be broken. You can check with a local PC repair shop for a repair price for the jack replacement.

I hope this helps,

Dell Inspiron 1501 Power Button won't turn on ....


I would remove the hinge / power button cover again and make sure the little pip that presses the button down it not broken, also check the little circuit board with the switch on to make sure it's not disconnected.
Try switching on with the cover removed.

I just purchased a new battery for my Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop and a new power adapter and the battery is still not charging. What could be wrong?


It sounds like the power section of the motherboard is dead. There's a section of your motherboard (where the power adapter plugs in) that is responsible for accepting the incoming DC voltage, partially regulating it, and then sending onto the battery and/or the motherboard for distribution among the components. This power section is the bridge between the power adapter and the battery. If this power section is damaged, the battery won't charge, the laptop may or may not power up, and you'll have irregular power problems... like you described.

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
