Dell power supplies use 3 wires. One detects the power supply. If you are using a Dell supply then that wire is broken inside the cord or at the connection. If this a universal power supply it only has 2 wires.

Not charging


Sounds like the ID chip in the battery pack has gone bad. This is a common issue with dells.. Otherwise your looking at the sensing circuit of the motherboard. If you know someone else with the same power supply as you try there power supply and see if it works.. If you continue with the same issue then contact the reseller and look into warranty repairs.

Certain models talk to a chip in the adapter, sounds like this one has gone bad. At this point you can live with, buy a new one or pick up a used. This is a fairly popular model and you should be able to locate one from a dead laptop.

Hi, Sounds like the charging circuilty is starting to fail,

Check the connection from the power lead to the DC input , is it tight ?or is there a lot of play ? if so bad connection ?

if it still under warranty, get it looked at before it stops charging completey.

Lastly , is it possible to try another charger ? make sure it the correct voltage and amps. The charger could be going down.

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.
