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

Dell latitude d520 starts with battery but not with ac adaptor


It could be a bad adapter, a short that drags everything down when plugged in.. could be a short inside the computer doing the same thing.

Borrow an adapter to see if you get the same result, if a friend or shop will help you with that.

A digital VOM could tell you if the right voltage is being put out by the adapter. Read on it, if it's supposed to be DC voltage and you get AC, the adapter is bad.

I solved the problem by using up my battery until the the screen would black out. Afterwards, I rebooted it (again without using AC adaptor) and the system warned me of low battery and to press F1. After pressing F1 I plugged the adaptor back and tried rebooting. The problem was solved

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

I have a new e627 used only once before today. Battery connection was partially out and screen indicated low battery. After five minutes screen went black and now I cannot power up.


Maybe your battery is totally drained.

Try to connect the AC adaptor of your laptop and plug it to the wall outlet and let it charge for 3 hours or more. When you plug it on the wall socket, it won't show the laptop's led blinking since it was totally drained. But after 3 minutes or more, it will start to show the blinking led to indicate charging. When blinking stops led light disappears, it is fully charged and ready to use.

Remember: Do not use your laptop while it is plugged in to save your battery life. When at home, remove the battery while it is fully charged and plug the AC adaptor directly to the wall outlet. It will still work without the battery as long as it is plugged directly to the wall socket.

Won't power up. Battery is charging though.. Help! How hard is it to replace the power supply in a Dell laptop?


There shouldn't be any wait time once you plug the laptop in you should be able to boot the machine. Reliable ac adaptors are found at many good tech places of course to be 100% certain could shop from Dell.com
