    Will try another adapter. the adapter I am currently using for it is for an Inspiron 1525. Not sure if each adapter is a step up or down in voltage but would think they would be similiar in delivered voltage.Please advise.

It sounds like you have a bad AC adapter . When you plug it in to the outlet in the wall and into your computer , do you see a charge indicator light on the computer? I'm asking you this because even with a bad battery your computer should operate without any problems with the AC adapter plugged in.

Take the battery out, connect the power plug and see if the laptop runs without the battery connected, the main battery may need to be replaced.

My Dell 100L will not switch on and battery will not charge.


since the LED is orange it might be a ram issue. try to locate the memory modules in your computer then try to reseat them. or if you have 2 ram modules try to remove 1 first then try to turn on the laptop check if it will do the same thing. then try removing 2 ram modules check if it will beep. if no beeps ask for mobo replacement. if it has beeps take note of the beep codes.
