First, check that the battery connection isn't blocked by a sticker or something.
second: try disconnecting the battery and ac and hold the power button for 1 minute. then give the battery and ac another try.

let us know how it goes.

if it still doesn't work, time for a warranty replacement.

Dell c640 battery not charging


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

POWER SUPPLY & BATTERY PROBLEM
If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED lightup? If not then -The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty.Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

No AC, battery only, works in Dock


Try using the A/C adapter without the battery connected and see if your unit boots.
If it does, you will need a new battery, if it does not, question: do you see the led light up when you plug in the charger adapter ?
If you do not, you may need another charger.

My latitude c640 batter do not charge green and yellow light flash when ac plug in


The flashing LED is indicative of a failed battery. The battery for a protable system has a expected lifespan of 300 to 500 discharge recharge cycles, then will eventually fail. If you haven't replaced the battery that is the next step. If the battery has been replaced with a NEW battery and still doesn't charge, then the motherboard would need replacement.

Occasionally a defective battery will show charge and not work at all. HP has the same problem on some models. Try a different battery and if it works, then the battery is defective.

Dell latitude C640 laptop battery will not charge. Got a new?? battery but it won't charge either. I am able to run on A/C power just fine.. When I got the computer (used) the battery worked fine... what...


Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not,
Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not,
Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.
