Eventually Yes, the battery acid will leak or explode on your motherboard and cause greater expense of repairs

Battery low while already plugged in


If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and graduallythe charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The batteryshows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops offto zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptablecharge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Dell Inspiron 1000 won't turn on. It is always


Well if it is always plugged to the wall then the laptop's power jack is the common problem there. You can have a Computer Technician check it and diagnose it for you. Be careful how much you pay, if that is the problem (i'm pretty sure it has to be) you can shop for the part online (ebay is a good place to find them for around ten bucks) and hand it to the computer guy. Otherwise you may be charged a fortune to get it fixed. Next time, use a power surge between the power adapter and the wall's power outlet.
Here's is a brief explanation of what happens with the power jack. Inside of it there are two or three pieces of metal that look like thick wires and what they do is transfer the current to the laptop. Eventually they wear out and break (common cause is having your laptop plugged to the wall continously exposing it to all sorts of power surges). Hope it helps, good luck.

What about this Dell Vostro 1000 battery


the seller looks ok ...the things to look for is first to be new..no refurbished ,,second try to buy it not formated and do it yourself by charging it for about 12 hours ..and completely empty it for a few times...than see that for the same model of laptop can be more than one model of battery ..different on tha size and so with charge life time bigger or smaller....I will go for a midle size if available ...and use two of them ...to increse independence from the sourse..a much to big one might be inconvenient ...and of course one original is to be prefered on a copy or one that just fits...
the UK site is an excelent choice ...stay away from chinese stuff and cheap deals..

Dell Vostro 1000 shut down and won't turn back on


nope, it is your dc power regulator board. you will note this happens if the battery is in or out of the laptop. that is the key test. some regulators are on the main board and some are seperate for this reason. I think the vostro though is on the main board. A little board re-work will resolve this issue after replacing some components, but this is way beyond a home user's ability.. trust me on this. Sorry for the bad news. Thanks!

ELECTRICAL POWER DOES NOT SEEM TO WORK EVEN THOUGH PLUGGED IN


Try another outlet in your home. Or if it is plugged into a surge protector remove it for the surge and plug it directly into another outlet

Wlan not working on dell vostro 1000


Try disable, then re-enable the driver, if still no luck, try to locate the wireless adapters properties an check to see if all is in order, ch, SSID, everything must match to the wireless signal. (by the way where is the signal coming from ?) your router ? or else where ?

Dell Vostro 1000 won't turn on/no power at all


The power connector within the laptop maybe broken. Not sure about Dell's but many laptops have only solder points holding the internal power connector to the motherboard. With too much agitation, the internal power connector becomes loose and then broken.

More info will help, does a light show on the laptop when it is plugged in? Have you tried removing the battery and lettting the laptop sit for about 10 mins, without any power? Have you re-seated the ram?

These are all possibilities of the symptom you have.
Let me know and G'luck!
