Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Dell Inspiron 1501 only turns on and works with one power source at a time only meaning only works with battery out and ac plugged in or ac unplugged and only battery in. If both are plugged in at same time you can hear the fan running but no screen pops up. It charges the battery though but it wont turn off. If you plug in ac while it is on with only battery the keyboard and mouse stop working and you cant shut it off. Any suggestions thanks.

Dell 1505 laptop..amber light flashes constantly, battery shows 100% but when I unplug AC...no power


Hi there!

The problem you're having there is a motherboard issue,
The computers power button is amber and it flashes that means the power inside the computer is not being distributed properly. You said that the battery is 100% charged but when you unplug the AC the computer will have no power, that means the motherboard is failing, its not identifying the battery as a source of power anymore,

You can try to use another ac adapter and check if the computer will boot up, or try to unplug and plug the memory and hard drive see if any changes will happen,
If the computer turns on with another ac adapter and boots up to windows properly then try to update the bios.
If the ac did not also the memory and hard drive,.
You'll really need to get a new motherboard.

Hope this helps!

Dell inspiron 1501 cannot indentify ac adapter


try this first. drain the flea power. remove batter and ac adapter. press and hold on the power button for 10 seconds. plug back ac adapter and battery. go online to http:support.dell.com then download the latest bios update.

once you reach the dell support site select on support for home users. then drivers and downloads. enter the service tag.

when the list of drivers and updates are listed make sure you selected the correct operating system. look for the BIOS then download it via browser. (do not download the manager)

after the download run or install the update.

If all fails. try a diff ac adapter if same problem message appears then replace the motherboard. else replace ac adapter.

My dell inspiron 1501 won't charge when it's plugged in it works for awhile then it seem to loose contact and the battery runs down fast.


Hello

It would appear that there is a motherboard issue with this model laptop from Dell. Below is a link to the discussion thread for the problem you described. Unfortunately, there is no current solution for this issue - short of replacing the laptop.

I had the battery not recognized on boot up. then


the Dell AC adapter has a sensing pin so the bios can determine the wattage of the adapter. If the system cannot ID the adapter, the battery charger circuit is disabled. You'll need a functional DELL ac adapter to get the battery to charge

Dell inspiron 1501


Hi there
Take the battery out and start the laptop up on AC power only, set the correct date, time and time zone, shut down the PC and remove the power jack, wait about 30 seconds then power it up on AC only again, If the date and time has changed the the cmos battery has run out and needs replacing. If it keeps date and time the problem is the battery or the powerboard controller that charges the battery is defective. If the battery is getting a charge, run the battery completely out of charge, then try to charge it again.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

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
