Question about Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Netbook
First, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough
power to both run the netbook & charge the battery. A very good way
to do this is to compare your netbook voltage & ampere requirements
(written on a sticker on the bottom of the netbook ) 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 netbook's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at
least equal to or greater than the netbook's rating. It should never be
less than the netbook'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 netbook, & 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 netbook & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another netbook, or try a good or new battery in your netbook.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the netbook's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the netbook 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 netbook's motherboard altogether.
