This is a common problem. The issue is almost certainly a faulty power board, a small PCB that accepts the power input and also holds two USB sockets – located on the top left side of the PC near the screen.
If your machine is in warranty the solution is a Dell repair/replacement.
If out of warranty then you will need to replace the component, or have someone do it for you.
The procedure involves buying a new power board, (Part number 48.4W006.021, available from Dell or more cheaply on Ebay at about £35), and replacing the old component. This is a task you should only undertake if you are comfortable with disassembling you laptop right down to removal of the system board. Instructions can be found in the Dell Service Manual at
http://support.euro.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1526/en/SM/index.htm
This is not difficult if you are competent at this type of repair, but I would not recommend it for someone that has not taken a laptop apart before.'battery not charging' at 8%. Please assist - c9938e3.jpg

Remove battery, clean the battery slot, put it back in, restart notebook, try charging again. if this doesn't helps then make sure proper power supply is coming or update the bios.

My iphone is not at all getting on..when i try to put charge it looks like charging but it doestnt do so..i was trying this for almost eight hoursss..please help.


Sounds like the internal battery is no longer working. A rechargeable battery only has so many cycles(time it can charge).
best to take it to an apple store and have them install a new battery. Also there are many of smaller local stores that are battery outlets that change all apple product batteries. Only thing is if you iphone is under warranty you have to take it to a apple store to be changed.
If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to assist you. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the solution. thanks and have a great day.

Won't hold charge


Dear Iblaze1136, Fri 2-20-2009 8:22pm EST (USA)

Batteries must be charged completely when they are new or they will never hold a charge right!
I'm assuming you never fully charged them when new and so they will never hold much of a charge!
The Solution is to replace the battery or batteries and charge properly (overnight or at least 8hrs).
I recommend Radio Shack for this!
