-check the system battery information and charger information of the computer; restart the computer, while the computer is booting up, press F2 repeatedly; check "battery info"
-if it stated ac adapter = unknown device ; update the BIOS (-visit support.dell.com
-click on drivers and downloads
-click or choose by service tag
-download the BIOS and install it on the computer)
-check information after updating; if same message AC adapter = unknown device; call manufaturer for a replacement AC adapter, if status has changed it is a battery problem or motherboard, contact manufacturer to test battery

    This problem has been around since 2003. Of course it has not been fixed.

    The error message "The AC Power Adapter Type Cannot Be Determined" means that the laptop can no longer recognize the AC adapter as a Dell AC adapter. Either the EPROM chip has gone bad or the signal wire in the AC adapter has become broken or disconnected to where it cannot relay to the laptop that it is indeed a Dell AC adapter. The adapter still provides ample power to support the laptop, yet the performance of the laptop is throttled down because it cannot see a proprietary Dell AC adapter connected.

    As the AC adapter still provides the functionality it is intended for (power is obviously supplied to the laptop, as it can be run on AC power alone with the battery removed...yet still with decreased performance. The other adapter STILL FUNCTIONS, it is just not recognized as a Dell AC adapter.

    As of right now, I know that the issue has been around since 2003,

Hi there!


First the problem that you were having with the ac adapter can be fix by just updating your computers BIOS.

Now for the computer not turning on try this, first remove battery make sure ac adapter is unplugged then press power button for 5 seconds after that put in battery and then press FN + POWER at the same time this triggers the diagnostic on your computer if it runs then just wait if it will give you an error message. If it fails then try to use just the ac adapter that means battery should be unplugged.



Hope this helps!.

This could be a result of many things, bad plugs wires; clogged air filters; bad rings on one or more cyclinders; fuel injection cloggs.

I would suggest you take it to a shop and have them diagnose the problem (unlease your computer error codes give you some idea of where to start) so that you don't waste money replacing good parts.

A broad problem like that is hard to diagnose without the diagnostic computer. And most shops will charge for the diagnostic time, but will get approval before repairing. So you could do the repair if it is something you are capable of.

If the system is only 6 months old, then it should be under warranty (Minimum warranty at Dell is 1 year) So contact technical support and let them assist you in finding the failure (800 624 9896 USA)

When I turn on the computer I get an error message that starts "The AC adapter type cannot be determined..." - The green light on the adapter is on. - When I ran the battery diagnostics, the adapter failed...


If the BIOS cannot ID the charger, the battery will not be charged.

Cause:

There is a fine wire in the middle of the canon plug to the computer, that sends an ID of the adapter to the BIOS. If that pin is bent or broken, then the system will be powered, but the battery charger is disabled. If another AC adapter for a Dell D-series is available, see if the issue goes away with diferent adapter. If no adapter is available, they are <$50 on Ebay.

If you replace the AC adapter, and the issue still occurs, then you'll need to replace the motherboard.

Dell Inspiron 1501 AC Adapter error message


The Dell 1501 ac adapter (possibly other Dell’s as well) has been known to be problematic because of its lack of a plug to jack secure fit. You will notice that the plug can all too easily be pulled from the jack, as opposed to other systems where the plug fits more securely onto the jack. The plug and jack combination is poorly designed so that over time, the plug will come unseated depending on how much movement the machine is subjected to. This will result in power error messages or outright power-up failure. So before assuming you have a faulty adapter, make sure that it is not just a loose plug that is causing the problem. If you look inside the jack, you will notice that there is a 3mm region of non-conductive material nearest the surface of the jack. Use a strip of standard electrical tape 3mm wide and long enough and wrap it around the base of the plug (you may need more than one layer of tape to get a good fit). I have used this method to secure my plug and it has served me well. If the tape comes undone over time, just simply replace it. A more “elegant” method would be to use an “O” ring of the appropriate size (about 6mm) around the base of the plug in lieu of the tape.
