Go to CONTROL PANEL / POWER OPTIONS / POWER METER. Is the battery charged or charging?

If POWER METER says the battery is charged, you have a motherboard problem. Take it to a tech.

Do you have a voltmeter?

Remove the battery and check for voltage at the laptop's battery contacts, while it is plugged in. No voltage = charging circuit defect. A blown internal fuse or other motherboard problem. Take it to a tech.

Voltage OK or no voltmeter - take it to a tech.

A qualified technician should have a schematic and other technical documentation for your model It can be rather difficult (expensive) and hit-or-miss to locate possible fuses without the factory paperwork.

Good luck.

I bought a new battery for laptop and it still wont charge


Dell uses proprietary equipment. IF the laptop wont work when plugged in and it is the original Dell charger, you need to check the charger, if the charger wont work then the battery wont charge. Note that it might be the connection on the board inside the laptop especially if the cord got pulled on while plugged into the laptop.

This is a problem I recently went through also, on my Dell Inspirion 1420. What you should do is replace the battery of the laptop, that fixed it for me. Laptop batteries are easy to find and replace, and you almost never have to open up a laptop to replace the battery. Generally you can find the battery on the bottom of the laptop, near the part where the monitor meets the main body of the laptop. Unfortunately, laptop batteries aren't very cheap, usually $50-$100, but I quick searched a replacement battery and found one for $35 for the Toshiba L555 series here, pretty hard to beat, and from a trusted seller too.

I think that your battery is soooo flat it may be no good, take battery out, THEN connect the Correct adapter, and see if that works, if it does, then ya do need a new Batt, or perhaps a good long10-12 hour charge first, with NO use at all during that period.

My power socket in my computer doesent work i have bought new chargers and still can get it to come on


if you just plugged in a new charger you should be able to power it on even if your battery is dead. laptops can be powered on even without its batteries as long as the chargers are connected to the laptop. i think you have to bring your laptop for servicing.

Inspiron laptop Battery won't charge


Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not,
Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not,
Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

Burning smell on my laptop


Unless you have the ability to to replace the plug connector part yourself, you will have to take it in to a shop who can do that kind of fine soldering for you. If nothing else is damaged, it should be ok with replacing just that burnt out part.

Laptop wont power up with Battery Installed


When you don't have the laptop battery plugged in, the power routes directly to the mainboard of the laptop. When the battery IS plugged in, it reroutes to the battery, then the battery powers the mainboard and charges at the same time.

It's likely that the route between either the power board and the battery or the battery and the mainboard is broken somehow. To fix it, you would need it professional stripped down and some soldering may be required and perhaps new parts such as capacitors.

To get someone else to do this would prove quite expensive. Might be worth checking up on your laptop warranty or considering the worth of your current laptop against the cost of a new laptop.
