My power cord not charging battery

Dell Inspiron 600

My power cord even though plugged in is not charging the battery or sending power into the computer. I tried the cord on other computers and it still works. I tried unplugging it, removing the battery and reinstalling both, but nothing seems to work.

You may have damaged the power input port.
broken solder joint. or your power supply took a dive. if you have a DMM 'meter' check the power supply to see if you are getting power from it.
if it is the power input port, you will have to either open up the laptop and see if it is a fixable soldering job or take it to a pro.
Happy Fixing =)

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.

Inspiron E1505 - ac power not always on when plugged in outlet


I've had both the battery and the cord die in my old Dell laptop. Assuming it's like mine and the light is on while the battery's charging and turns off when the it's full....

Dell batteries don't last more than a year or two, so my first question would be how old is the battery you are currently using? When a battery is dying, it essentially isn't able to use its full capacity. So in addition to lasting less than an hour or so, it will try to charge for 6-12 hours trying to get a full charge even though it can't. So the light will stay on until it gives up. It will start charging again if you unplug it and plug it in again. If this is the case, you can either replace the battery ($100+ bucks) or ignore it and don't use the battery.

If the power cord is going, it will only work at certain angles. Play around with wiggling and bending the cord (not TOO far though!!) to see if you can get the battery light to shut off when you move the cord in a certain direction. A new power cord/adapter will cost you around $50 I think, if that's the problem. Let me know if your problem doesn't seem like either of these.

Hope this helps and best of luck!

Dell Laptop Won't Boot Up


Don't take this as a definate answer, as I am only going on from what I've seen close friends do though I don't remove my Battery from my Laptop even though.
I do have some Electronic sexperience though very limited so my answer is You don't need a battery for a Laptop to boot and it doesn't matter if it doesn't hold a charge anymore,

Your problem I suspect is something else, meaning without proper (enough) input regarding what the Laptop does and or doesn't do, eg. starts the P.O.S.T then stops, 3 beeps or 1 , possibly none. Can you get into the BIOS setup? Maybe Windows starts loading and stops somewhere in the boot process.

If you need anymore assisatnce then feel free to ask.

Dell Inspiron 9200 Battery defunct or ....


Try taking the battery out of the laptop, and see if it will power up. If not it is possible that your power cord died - and your battery may be just fine.

For reference, I've seen plenty of Dell's with dead power cables.
