Question about Dell Inspiron 710m Notebook

Power supply issues

My 710 recently stopped charging with the AC power cord. I have read about possible fixes. I would like to know if there is a docking station that can be used to charge the battery or at least power the laptop when in use.

    The power cord works I hve tested it on other lap tops. I'm pretty sure that it has to do with the laptop itself based on the research I have already done. I just want some info n possible docking stations that can quickly give power to the laptop.

Have you checked the AC power pin (where the AC cord plugs in)?

Chances are that the pin has come loose from tugging and pulling on it. When this happens the battery charging is intermittent at best. The parts to fix this problem are usually under $10 but the labor if you take it in is gonna run $100-$200. You can repair it yourself if you're comfortable working with electronic components. Not that tough. WHen you get it fixed, invest in a Cable Retention device to keep it from happening again.

Here's a short video that talks about it. . .

How do I check internal power issues after I know my ac adapter and power jack are not the issue. My laptop will not start up and the led will not light up. Verified with multimeter up to motherboar


I would try removing the battery and power cord. You need to hold the power button down for 30 seconds. You can then attach the battery and power cord and see if it will power up. This may not be possible if the battery is permanently attached. You will be able to tell right away if this worked.
You may have a loose connection between the motherboard and the charging port. This would involve removing the motherboard and soldering in a new charging port. If this is what is wrong, it takes a professional to fix this issue. This is a rather involved problem to fix.

I have a Compaq Presario R3000 with Windows XP OS. Until recently it had been working fine. Suddenly, the power went off while still connected to the AC Supply and the Laptop just went off. The battery...


1. Remove battery from the laptop. 2. Unplug the power cord from the computer. 3. Let the computer sit for a few min. 4. Leave battery out. 5. Connect power adapter to computer 6. Push power button to turn computer on. 7. If computer powers on shut down again, and put battery back in. 8. Push power button to turn computer back on (at this point battery and power adapter should be connected to the computer)
If computer powers on with power adapter with the battery out. You are having a battery issue. You would want to look into replacing the battery. If computer does not power on with just the power adapter. You are most likely having a power issue. Depending on how old the laptop is. You will either want to contact the manufacturer. Or take the computer to a computer repair shop, or consider replacing the laptop.

Check for a DC connector problem:

Symptoms of a broken power jack
1. If you wiggle the power cord or the AC Adapter connector on the back of the laptop, the power LED and battery charge LED start to flicker.
2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it

Hi, when using the (AC Power Adapter), it is important that once the (Battery) is fully charge; to do one or the other. Stop! using the AC power, shutdown the computer, and unplug the AC power; use the battery (only), or remove the battery, and use (only) the AC power. Note: Using both power sources this can cause damage to the battery, by over charging, and possibly over heating the computer. Thanks paul7of9

Here's what your issue is:

1. You're using the wrong volt/amp Adapter..(charger) For Example.. Your Laptop needs a 19.5v Adapter and you are using an 18.5v
2. You're using a "generic" AC Adapter and Not an OEM one.. the generic adapters will overheat and sometimes even melt due to Cheap capacitors/resistors being used..
3. You need to clean your Fan/Heatsink.. Clean the heatsink cooling fins to free blockage and stop overheating issue..
Or .... 4. Possible faulty battery

Battery will not charge


Hi!

It's your ac adapter that is causing this issue. The ac adapter doesn't supply enough power or doesn't supply any power at all to the battery. Try to borrow another ac adapter from any inspiron system and if that works, then you need to replace the ac adapter, else, it's the motherboard.

Hope you find it helpful.

Thanks,

Karlox™ :)

Try taking the battery out for 30 secs or so and then replacing it. You'll find a couple of locks on the bottom of the laptop that will release it.
