Dell 600m Computer won't power with adaptor connected

Battery was low went to charge by pluging in adaptor screen came up with message A/C adaptor not found...battery then died before being able to read rest of message. Caught a glimps of it saying something about internal card activated and then internal card switching off to save battery although adaptor was still plugged in and should have been charging.

Adaptor works as I tried it on another Dell laptop (640M), Can't check battery as different model notebook

Plug in ac adaptor to Dell inspiron 600m and does


Sounds like you have a broken DC Power jack. This is where the small socket where you attach the AC adaptor breaks loose from the motherboard , resulting in the laptop not charging properly or at all . If you have to wiggle the power jack to get a connection then this is definately theproblem.

Most computer reapir shops can do this for about $100. Or if your handy with a soldering iron and dont mind disassembling the laptop , you can always buy a new DC jack for your make and model off ebay and try to solder it yourself!

Dell 600m laptop fell off table. Pwr connector ended up bent. Unit will not power up now., even from fully charged battery. Opened up unit and made sure there is no damage to motherboard at power jack. ...


Hello there...

As far as I know there is no power fuse on the motherboard.

But can you try this: Power on the laptop without the battery equipped, only use the AC power adaptor.

Hope this helps....:D

Powere adaptor has to be unplugged to boot


There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

If this did not work, try also disassembling the laptop & make sure that all main components are seated properly. Also make sure that all ribbon cables interconnecting the various components of the laptop are tightly connected.

Dell 9400 wont show AC power icon


If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the about10.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Solid green: The battery is charging.

  • Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.

If the computer is running on a battery, the about41.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).

  • Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.

  • Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.
Looks like the AC adaptor is faulty.

Getting hot underneth


Both batteries could be dead. But if you bought a new battery, it's unlikely. I don't know what green light you see, but if it's on the power adapter, it just means it's turned on--not that it is charging.
Two possibilities: Your power adapter is bad or the motherboard is bad. Because you say the computer works if plugged in, then you have ruled out the adapter.
You should be checking/cleaning the battery contacts and if all else fails, going for a new motherboard.
