Question about Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook
I get no lights when I plug the adapter in without the battery. With the battery in and plugged in I get an amber battery light but it does not stay lit.
Take an ohm meter you can buy for ten bucks at radio shack put the volt meter on DC volts plug the charger into the battery charger end the black lead goes tothe outside and the red goes inside, set the meter for 12 volts dv and mesure the voltage. read the voltage output on the battery charger transformer see if it's within a half volt if not the charger is bad, if it's ok then use rubbing achol and a q tip to clean the battery connectors on the computer and the battery itself, if you do not get the light then pull the battery out and hold the power button in the on postion and hold the enter key for 1 minute and try again, if the lights do not come back on your battery is dead, if the computer will still boot with the battery then the charger is working if it won't boot up the battery is dead. Got it?

Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.
Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).
Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.
Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.
Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.
hope this helps

There is high possibility that your adapter is stuffed. Dell have built in a recognition circuitry
into the 65w adapters and when that goes, the system will no longer recognize
it as a 65w adapter even though it is still putting out 65w. The system then
shuts off the battery recharge circuit and to make matters worse it won't even
charge the battery when the computer is off. It also
speedsteps the processor down to half its speed so everything runs slower. Only
option is to stick with a slow computer that can't be used on batteries or buy
another ac adapter.
you do not want to pay $80 for a original adapter directly from dell,
there is an alternative choice to get an 3rd party charger, check this
