Battery not recognized

I have my laptop plugged in and "charging". The red battery light is flashing and when i open the power settings the battery doesn't even register. I also noticed a serious decline in performance once this started. I thought it was simply the battery died so i replaced with a new one with the same results. Please help.

Check the connectors where the battery slides in, if they are dirty, clean them with a q-tip and alcohol

My battery light flashes red then green then red and so on even though its plugged in. The power indicator says I'm fully charged. What doed the flashing red and geen mean?


Try removing the battery and just use the AC adapter. If the laptop functions normally then you have a problem with the battery charging circuit . Either your battery is defective or the circuit that charges it is defective ( meaning the system board).

My dell d600 is not charging what is the solution and it always flash red light when it is plug to power


That means either the battery is no longer good anymore or the laptop is unable to charge and/or recognize the battery. Try cleaning the contacts of both the battery and the laptop when everything is unplugged and powered off with alcohol and a q-tip. But usually if a laptop is not charging the battery then most likely you will need a new one

This could indicate a bad battery. Try removing the battery and powering on the laptop. If the power LED remains white then you have a problem with the charging circuit. That means your battery could be defective or the battery charging circuit on your motherboard is faulty.

Dell 600m Laptop Killing batteries


If you are using known good batteries, and you have the most current BIOS Flash, then it is likely a failure of the charging curcuit on the motherboard. The flashing Amber (Some people see it as red) led indicates a failed battery

The Multiple good batteries, I assume have been recently purchased, because computer batteries are consumable and are rated for 300 to 500 charging cycles before they wear out.

I replaced my 700m motherboard with one from Ebay for about $170.00 about a year ago.

WON"T WORK


sounds like a dead battery. Plug the origional charger into it and the front led (below the flash) should flash red. If the red led in the back of the camera flashes or stays lit, then you have the wrong charger plugged in. (the camera won't power up if the back red/green led is on when plugged in)
