1 Answer

My Dell Venue 11 will not come back on after the battery dies. What do I do?

I've plugged it in to charge it. The white light is on and when I push the power button the orange light flashes then it goes back to the white light, but it never comes on!

Sounds like the battery is exhausted. Try gain, without a battery.

That usually indicates battery is beginning to go bad. Eventually it will not hold a charge and will need to be replaced.

if you have tried both batteries with the same laptop and they are giving you the same error code, then it could very well be a motherboard problem, both the batteries cannot be bad, what you can do is try these batteries on some other compatible laptop model to check if they work fine there. Also try swapping the AC adapter as in both case you might be using the same Ac adapter, try using some other good known AC adapter as well.

Further queries are welcome

You can't get the modern batteries to come back to life. Time to get a new one.
A suggestion: When using a laptop battery, run it on battery and discharge it until it shows about 2 to 3% charge left at least once a month. Do not keep charging it without letting it run down periodically. Most important--do not run always plugged in to line current.

SOURCE: dell inspiron 1545 won't boot turn on start up

Unseat and reseat the memory in the laptop one stick at a time in each slot one at a time. Turn on the laptop after each reseat of memory.

If that doesn't work then take out the hard drive and then the dvd drive.

Turn the laptop on again and if you still can't get video on the screen then the motherboard is defective and would need to be replaced.

SOURCE: I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 that won't start.

This is directly from the User Manual:
If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the Battery 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 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.

Check whether the battery have enough charge. If it has below 40% of the total power needed, the tab won't start up. Recharge it fully and try.

My dell venue 8 pro is very hot during chargging and the charging light is not on

more than likely it's going to be one of these two things. Number 1 the battery is going out. Number 2. check the charging port to make sure that the their separation between the connectors. If there's any damage on the charging port or the plug, you could be cross wires and causing it to overheat. If the charge port and the plug look fine, check for battery a replacement. you will have to change that yourself but you find a real cheap price saving from 5x to ten times the cost of the battery as to have some else replace it for you.

There is a short circuit on your motherboard. This is why the power adapter switched off (thermal cutout) and resets after you remove the adapter from the wall power outlet.
You need a new motherboard.

Dell 1720 says plugged in not charging , works fine on cord , now that battery is down will not work on battery alone . meter when pushed will light one white light then goes out. battery bad ?

Hello there.
Unfortunately, your battery is "dead". I used to have Dell notebook for several years, and on everyone, after 1 year, battery gone. If your battery is still under warranty go to official Dell service and let
they replace it. If not, you have to buy a new one, and it is at least 130$.

I hope I was helpfull.

This could indicate a bad battery. Try removing the battery and powering on the laptop. If the power LED remains white then you have a problem with the charging circuit. That means your battery could be defective or the battery charging circuit on your motherboard is faulty.
