Question about Dell Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Dell Inspiron works on battery only. No AC, no charger.

Read the post on running the battery/charger utility, but there is nothing in my Control Panel, Classic View about it? The blue power light is on on my charger, and it seems to fit snug in the power jack on the back of the laptop, but no power???? Help

Get a volt meter and be sure the power is coming to the plug, you may have a broken cord. if the problem is not there see if you have a setting in the bios for dc only. some older dells have a bios setting for the power settings in bios.

Dell Inspiron 6000 won't charge


Since you have already replaced the battery and the laptop works with the AC charger, then probably the charge circuit in the system board (mother board) is bad. I have rarely seen an AC charger that will power the laptop but not charge the battery. 99% of the time, if it is not the battery, it is the system board.

Dell 1525 won't run on ac but will on generic battery


Dell systems will not charge the battery without a Dell Branded AC adapter connected to the system (The BIOS looks for the adapter ID and disables the battery charger if not ID'd)
It appears, that since the system will not power on with either AC adapter, that there is a problem with the power connection of the system. You can replace the power board

if that fails to resolve next is the motherboard

When you received the system as out of the box and you get this message "The AC power adapter wattage and type cannot be determind" let the Dell tech service know that they sent you a wrong or incorrect type of AC Adapter.
If this message not was not appearing before it just happened recently try to download and install the latest BIOS version from the support site.
If all fails remove the batt and check if laptop can work with AC adapter alone, because issues like AC not determine may not charge the battery and laptop may not work with AC as well, maybe laptop is already running on battery power.
