My dell latitude c400 does not take a charge do i have to buy a new battery ?


Yes, most likely you may need to replace the battery. Try to get a different cell capacity this time (I do not know if you currently have a 6 cell or 9 cell battery). Once it's not keeping a charge it most likely has a problem.
Hope this helps...

Battery light won't stop blinking green-orange-orange-orange-orange. Battery works fine, and the blinking keeps going even when plugged in.


Impending battery failure. System has detected a fault (May have weak cell or something) so eventually, a new battery

Blinking battery lights


Is this the charging LED? If so, you've either got a bad battery or a bad system board.

C 400 Latitude display problem


That LOCK A sysmbol is the caps lock.

Most likely its due to hardware failure. Be sure the battery is holding a charge and the power adapter is working.

It could be bad Ram. Usually when there is nothing at all but a quick light on and off and nothing, its due to motherboard issues or hardware plugged into it. Try removing any CD drives or add in devices.

Good luck

Dell C400 Laptop Battery not charging


Go into the battery properties and check if the battery is charging. If it says it is, then test it, use the battery to see if it really is charging, they will sometimes give a false reading. If it's not charging, then check the power supply with an ohm meter for the proper output. If this all checks good, but the battery isn't charging, then I'm afraid you have a failed power management system on the motherboard. The power management system controls the charging along with other power related aspects of the machine. If the power management system has failed, then unfortunately, you will have to replace the motherboard in order to fix it.
