Er this is the dell old problem.
Follow the below steps to fix it.
The Battery didn’t charge or detect being plugged in also caused by four reasons:

  • 1. The Vostro 1510 laptop battery failed
  • 2. The Adapter failed (can not charge the battery)
  • 3. The motherboard charging electric circuit failed (many caused by short damage). You can view more info here: Dell motherboard problem
  • 4. The laptop bios is too old to recognize the battery

I am trying to charge my Garmin GPS on my computer, but it only shows me a plugin at the bottom what is wrong?

That's normal. The connection is meant for putting new software into the Garmin. It probably charges at the same time, but there's no indication of the state of charge.

With Dell you have to use Dell OEM chargers to keep all the functions. Like charging and use at the same time. Otherwise it wont do both. Look on Ebay for a genuine Dell charger or go to Dells website. Be advised that it might be the jack on the computer though.

Garmin 265 wt is charging via USB cable.It will not connect to the garmin website.


The Garmin Communicator Plugin needs to be installed on your computer.

Also check to be sure that the data cable is the correct one.
When connect between the nuvi and the computer, the nuvi should show that it is in mass storage mode by displaying a computer on the screen.

The correct cable is Garmin part number 010-10723-01.

My Dell Laptop syas that my battery is charged. But when I remove the ac power cord the computer immediately shuts down.

Hi there,

I repair laptops professionally and work on many Dells. Here are the possibilities.

1. The plugin connection where the battery meets the charging contacts in its bay where it seats are malfucntioning and the software is reading it incorrectly. To see if this is so, push the small round black button on the battery next to the 5 little dots at one end. If none of those dots light up green, the battery has no charge and the connection I spoke of above is damaged or malfunctioning beyond where you can see. If all the dots light up green, the battery is likely fine but the laptop can;t connect to its charge at the plugin.

2. The basic software (BIOS) is reading the charger/adapter incorrectly and although saying it is charging or charged, the actual charger is ruined inside in the compartment for charging the battery. Dell chargers can actually be incapable of charging the battery but still run the computer on direct current while plugged in.

3. The battery is no longer able to be charged, but is giving a false reading.

4. The DC Power Jack (into which you plug the charger) is only partially damaged and while able to power the laptop directky, cannot charge the battery. (Check to see if it is loose and woobly when you plug in the charger.

The easiest and least expensive way to troubleshoot and fix this yourself is to start with the charger. They can be had on eBay for about $20. Keep in mind that if no green lights show up on the battery, it might be your first choice and it's about the same price.

I hope I've given you enough info the help you determine your true problem.

My computer will not charge and itunes will not play

Hi. I would suggest to powerdrain your laptop and try to charge it after the powerdrain. To powerdrain your computer you must remove first the battery and unplug the ac adapter then press and hold the power button for 20 seconds while the battery and ac is out. After that place back the battery and plugin the ac adapter and turn on your computer and see if its charging or not. Regarding your problem about the ITUNES software you could try uninstalling first the itunes and then download the latest version from google and install it on your computer. Hope this helps
