First, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

SOURCE: Dell 1545 plugged in with correct adapter, but not charging.

Battery packs die after a while they are unable to hold charge this sounds like your case, you will need to replace battery pack, if you get two good years out of such you have already done well.

Have a look in your power properties and see the settings.They may be set at when battery reaches 30% The computer shutsdown. You can change the settings to your own preferance.

Plugged in, not charging


First, try another charger. Perhaps your charger isn't providing enough volts to the laptop

New battery wont charge in my dell inspiron 1545 where it plugs into the laptop burned out


It's probably the connection that's the problem. If the wiring is damaged, it wont likely pass a current to the battery itself. I suggest getting your laptop serviced.

Inspiron 1545 how to reset power adapter


1 Possibly the generic power supply plug has the wrong polarity.

My Dell Inspiron 1545 will not chargethe battery when plugged in.


I've seen that some Dells don't charge their batteries correctly when they're not also turned on.
Take notice if that's the case as it'll be inconvenient if you expect to have a full charge after leaving it plugged in, but powered down.
Additionally, those batteries do age and slowly 'go bad'. You should also consider the age of your computer/battery and think about how long you intend to keep it, as opposed to the cost of a battery replacement.
Best of luck, William

My dell 1545 inspiron wont operate on the battery works fine on charger and battery icon shows 100% and charging but as soon as power removed laptop immediately powers down. physically measured battery...


I think that if it's 100% it should say that it's fully charged.There could be something wrong there.

My computer blinks with a red icon on the printer saying that the it's recommended the battery be replaced when the battery goes bad. It shows 100% charge as well.

I just got a 9 cell battery off of Ebay for my Acer Aspire that lasts 3 or 4 hours and is a little big, but fits the contacts and locks on.

Ac adapter problem with dell inspiron 1545


TRy to remove the battery, then power the laptop on with only the ac power adapter inserted. if it powers, then your adapter is ok, and insert battery while its on, battery charging should start. otherwise, you could be having a problem with your charging system.
