The battery is stationary but the cord is not, so I would say it is the cord. Go top a good store that works on them and ask to try it before you buy it. A new power supply can run $60.

You have a DC connector problem:

Dell inspirion 1501 laptop, not charging battery light showing red, have bought a new mains adaptor but still not charging


Does the back dc jack seem loose when you have the ac adapter plugged into it? Wiggle the cord right where it plugs into the laptop. If it moves around then most likely the dc jack on the inside has one of it's 3 points of contact broken. This means that someone would need to re-solder that contact or put a whole new jack into the laptop. Another thing to try is replacing the battery. Sometimes they won't charge because they are bad. Another thing to try is take the battery out, plug it into the adapter, turn it on, get into windows, shut down, put battery back in, turn on. See if that resets the battery and makes it charge.

Bought a new power cord because I had to keep moving cord around to get battery to charge, move and would lose charge received new power cord and still have to move cord around to keep getting a charge...


First thing you need to do is STOP trying to wiggle the cord to make it work. You could damage the motherboard.

The power jack needs to be replaced. It's a pretty standard repair. You can try finding a local laptop tech from Craigslist or visit your local shop.

This type of repair usually runs 70-100 out the door (depending on where you live)

I don't recommend you trying to fix it yourself.

I have a Dell XPS M1210 laptop for which I have just purchased a new 9-cell compatible battery. It worked great for a couple of hours, but now shuts off immediately when unplugged from the AC power supply....


You might want to try what I did when I had a completely discharged battery for my Dell Laptop. I attached the battery to the computer, make sure the computer is off and plug in the charger for a full twenty four hours (undisturbed). And this really worked. I had no problems with the battery. Good luck.

There is a chance that the power adapter that charges the computer is bad and has stopped charging the battery. Another possibility is that the adapter that you power supply plugs into located inside you computer is malfunction try wiggling the cord and see if the computer trys to come on.

Power supply malfunction?


Remove the battery and try the cord again. Complete with the moving it around. It sounds like you have already diagnosed the loose DC plug adaptor, but the battery could have gone terminal.
