If the laptop battery is completely flat it may take up to an hour to get up enough charge to allow the machine to work

Plug it in and leave it for a few hours

    If you have not got lights then all you may be hearing is the charge circuit trying to pump current thro the battery



    Take the battery out and run the machine directly from the adaptor.



    If the lights still dont come on get a meter and check the output of the charger unit

I can't get my dell inspiron to power on. I will charge the battery using the wall charger but will not come on. What can I try?


Try this if will help.

Remove battery and unplug the ac adapter from laptop.

Without the power sources hold down the power button for 10 seconds.

Check the ac adapter from wall power socket if ac adapter LED is ON.

Plug back in the ac adapter to laptop then check the LED from the ac adapter if it stayed on.

If ac adapter LED turned off right after you plug in the ac adapter to laptop then you need to replace the ac adapter, motherboard and power daughter board.

Hold down the D key then Press Power Button once. Check if color display will appear in the screen.

if the ac adapter stays on you and still no power indicator from the laptop you need to replace motherboard and power daughter board.

Hope this helps.

Hello The mandatory requirements before you try anything else are the main battery must be installed, it must work correctly, and there must be nothing wrong with the AC adapter or it's connection to the laptop. -Your model is recent enough the main battery must be installed - it won't start up on the AC adapter alone. - The main battery must be capable of being charged up to at least a minimal capacity. - The main battery does not last forever. Typically it works as it should for a year or so then begins to deteriorate - by the second year it can't be charged to anywhere near it's rated capacity. It gets worse as time goes by. Older batteries often develop internal shorts that makes it impossible for them to produce the voltage they're supposed to produce (you can test for that with a volt meter), and they may get HOT when you attempt to charge them for a while, rather than a little warm, or they may never get warm at all. - If you haven't replaced it since the computer was new, this model is old enough the main battery should be replaced! There must be nothing wrong with the AC adapter or it's connection to the laptop - if there is, the main battery cannot be charged properly. A common thing people do when they unplug the AC adapter is to pull on the cord rather than the plug on the end of the cord as they are supposed to do. Doing that eventually damages the plug and/or the wiring near the plug, and over a longer period of time, doing that damages the jack in the laptop the plug plugs into. The jack in the laptop should move when you wiggle the plug in the jack. Most laptops have an led that lights up only when the AC adapter is plugged in, there's nothing wrong with the AC adapter or it's connection to the laptop, and the AC adapter is charging the battery. That led should come on at least briefly when you unplug the plug from the AC adapter, then plug it back into the laptop jack, even if the main battery is fully charged. The led should not blink on and off randomlyIwhen you wiggle the plug in the jack. If that led never comes on, there is something wrong with the AC adapter or it's connection to the laptop, or the main battery is shorted (check it's voltage). If that led never goes out even after a long time, the main battery is probably no good - replace the main battery. The plug on the AC adapter cord can be replaced, but if you damaged it by pulling on the cord you will probably continue to do that at least part of the time, so since a plug molded onto the cord stands up to abuse a lot longer than a replacement plug, it's often a better idea to replace the cord from the AC adapter to the laptop if it can be unplugged at the AC adapter (a laptop repair place may stock that), or if that can't be done or you can't find that part, replace the AC adapter. The jack on the laptop can usually be replaced but that requires taking apart the laptop and careful removal and replacement of the jack. A laptop repair place does that sort of thing frequently, and often have the more common jacks in stock, though they may have to order one. Hope this helps, if so do appreciate my effort by rating the solution Good Luck, Cmptrlink

It sounds like the Battery is Dead or not charging. You might try a local pc shop and see if they have any laptop batteries for you laptop. Or have them test to see if the battery is charging.

Cannot get my computer to turn on


remove all external peripherals. remove laptop battery. remove ac adapter.
plug ac adapter to wall power socket without the laptop connected check if the ac adapter led will stays on. if yes then connect it to the laptop and check if the ac adapter led turns off. if yes motherboard laptop has problems and need to be replaced.
if ac adapter led stays off without connecting laptop, try different wall power socket, if still ac adapter led is off then replace the ac adapter.
if ac adapter has light stays on then connected to laptop but laptop cannot even power up even the ac adapter led is on then laptop motherboard needs to be replace.

Dell inspiron 1501 work fine turn off last night now wont turn on


You mentioned trying a different battery, try a different AC adapter.

When plugging in the ac adapter to the wall, see if the POWER LED comes on on the adapter, then when you connect it to the computer, see if the LED stays on.

If the issue occurs with both AC adapters (No battery installed) then the motherboard has failed. If one ac adapter works but the other doesn't then the adapter is bad

NO POWER AT ALL


Remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter. With the AC adapter unplugged from the system, plug it into the wall, see if the power LED comes on. If it does, plug it into the system and see if it goes out. If the LED never comes on, or goes out when connected to the system, replace the AC adapter.

If the LED stays one, see if the system will power on and give any indications of power at all (Flashing Caps Lock, Scrool Lock, Num Lock LEDs) If no power indication with a good ac adapter connected, then the motherboard is the next item to replace.

Either item listed above can prevent the battery from charging. So the battery is the last item I'd replace unless the system turns on with the battery out of the system.

Wont power on


Try powering the system on with only the AC adapter, see if you get any power indications.

If you do not, then the system is not getting AC power.

See if the power adapter has an LED on it and if it is lit with the computer disconnected. If the LED doesn't come on at all, replace the adapter. IF the LED is on with the computer unplugged from it, then goes out when you plug it in, then try a new AC adapter.

If a new AC adapter doesn't resolve the problem, then you may want to look into buying a new computer as replacing the motherboard on this system may cost more than replacing the computer with a new system.

Power Trouble


Hi!

First, you need to check the one that you got for replacement is the correct adapter for your system. If it matches with the old one, make sure that the ac adapter light (LED) is on when you plug it the wall outlet only. When you plug it in the portable and if your ac adapter LED blinks out (turns off) then the motherboard needs to be replaced or else the ac adapter is not working and needs another replacement. Call Dell and have it replaced if you just bought it.

Hope this helps!
