Dell 5160 Won't start up or charge battery

I just purchased a used Dell 5160 on Ebay that was supposed to be in working order. when I got it and plugged in the charger it would not turn on or charge the battery. After a little research I found that the charger that was sent with the laptop is a 90-W not the 130-W that it originally had. When I pull the battery I get 2 blinking green lights but still no start up. Any thoughts?

Thanks,

CaboWabo

Mydell 5160 has a yellow blinking light on the front 1st from right. any suggestion on cause or solutions.


It is the battery Status indicator and flasing orange light indicates that battery is low. After connecting the charger it should turn solid green, which indicates that the battery is charging and it turns off when battery is charged completely.
If it continously blinks, check out the charger and battery.

I am using a rocketfish laptap universal power supply and charger on my dell laptop, but my battery does not charge. What can be the problem?


If you have the original power supply, I would try that to see if your battery will charge. If you don't you can try taking your battery off the laptop and just have the power supply hooked up. If it will start up like that, your battery or the charging portion of your motherboard is probably bad and you should have a technician look at it. If it doesn't start, your power supply is more than likely bad and you can order a new one from eBay.

My AC power adapter for my Dell Inspiron 5160 won't stop beeping and now won't charge the battery.


The box on the charger is bad. Order a new charging cable from dell or another trusted reseller, making sure it is for the same model family.

Good Luck,
