Question about Dell XPS M1330 Notebook

2 Answers

I have a DELL XPS M1330 with a no-power problem (*power adapter charger works and the output V is good, and led is on until u plug it in/ *battery is at 50% of its health/ *no leds go on to tell me if theres any power going in) I suspect its either the power adapter AND the battery. Or the part of the motherboard where the On/Off switch is. Or the component where the adapter jacks into the Motherboard. Any advice where should I start the PC surgery? Whats most likely the problem? I appreciate your time.

This problem cannot be resolved by a DC Jack replacement. It is a problem with the charging circuit on the motherboard. Its a common issue for this model.

Some people got theirs replaced under an extended warranty, but I think they have cut off that warranty now.

Apparently these people can help with the problem for not very much money.

The most common problem is a loose DC connector on the system board. If you plug in the adapter and wiggle it slightly. If you can move it, that means that the DC connector is indeed loose. You have to take the unit apart and resolder the connector.

My Dell Laptop was working fine in 220V country, when i moved and try to use it in US (110V) the charger LED is ON but once i plug it in the laptop it goes off and the laptop is not working. i even tried...


So two different devices, each with their own charger, don't work in different power outlets in different rooms? How about if you plug a light into the same outlet. Does the light work? Does it dim when you plug the charger into the laptop? If so you have a bad electrical system, either a loose wire or bad outlet.

Dell XPS M1330 doesn't recognize original power cord after 2 yrs


Check your mains adapter plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.

If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. I suggest you get a quote first.

Xps m1330 doesnt work?


Remove the battery, and unplug to turn it completely off. then plug everything back in and restart if you still have a black screen it could be your LCD going out. which is a very expensive replacement part.
