Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
After replacing the power adapter for my laptop with an adapter from BatteryEdge.com, the Startup will go to a screen claiming the adapter cannot be determined, and it will affect performance. While the adapter does work for AC, it will not charge the battery. The adapter is a universal.
Its not an adapter problem. its not a battery problem as well.
Here is what you can try to solve it.
1. we need to update the BIOS of the cmputer/ for that. go to the website. support.dell.com and then click on drivers and downloads. click on enter the service tag. and then enter your computer service tag and then it will take you to the downlaod page and then you would see a downlaod for BIOS. downlaod it and install it. 60% it will fix the problem.
Note:- the battery charge must be 10% in order to continue. else it wont work.
2nd thing. the port where you connect the adapter to the computer which can be called as a mother board that has gone bad and needs to be replaced.
and replacing the motherboard is not economical it a very costly item. so you might need to think of purchasing another laptop.
3. if you even donot want to buy another laptop. call dell if you are in warranty they will replace the motherboard else they will connect you to Out of warranty repairs and they will fix it. its a hardware problem and it is a costly item. be aware.
i can understand its sad, but if this information was helpful please rate this solution.
