Question about Dell Inspiron B120 Notebook

1 Answer

I get a steady light on my Dell b120 (3rd light-charging light) but it will not power on, using a brand new charger. I reseated the battery which is probably bad, very old, no help. Every once in a while the 3rd light will start flashing green slowly. I'm thinking the ac power jack in back but it doesnt seem loose. Any suggestions?

It sounds as though the battery needed to be replaced, very common on old laptop. Buy you a new one on ebay.

I have a brand new Ryobi kit put battery in the charger the red light goes on and the green light flashers on and off is this charging or should the green light go off until battery is charged.


When the battery is charged the green will be steady on and the red will go off. Flashing green is an indication that it is charging.

hope this helps?

I have a Dell Inspirion 1525. I have a fairly new after market replacement battery which I have only had now for 4 months. I am using Vista. As soon as I unplug, computer shuts down. I go to power settings...


The adapter is working correctly. The battery is either slow to charge or in need of replacement.

It's possible your battery isn't charging at all so to test this boot into bios -> battery status and watch it run overnight.

My Dell Inspiron 1525 is now around 4 years old and recently it has not been able to charge and only works when it is plugged in. Also when i start the laptop, it displays a message saying i need to...


As you say the system is 4 years old update the bios
your download link is here!
IMP. Be sure to plug in the battery and it should be charges above 10 % and the system should be connected to the mains power supply also ensure there will not be a power outage during the update process
this will resolve the issue 100 %
Dont forget to say thanks!

Does it harm a Ryobi 18v lithium battery to leave on Charger?


Lithium-Ion batteries require careful charging and temperature monitoring while in the charger. Ryobi's Charging station monitors many functions and shuts off when the battery has gone through a complete charge. This is indicated by a steady Green light. Once the Charge indicator is a steady green the charger stops charging. With any battery It will slowly discharge and I don’t think the Ryobi will maintain a battery that is never removed. For example, if after a complete charge cycle if the battery was left there for 2 years and then you went to use it, it would likely be completely discharged. However if the battery charger is unplugged then plugged back in a new charge sequence would start. I lose power at my house about every 6 months or so. Once power is restored a new cycle would start and the charging cycle begins again.
Hope this helps and have a great day.

Inspiron 1501 charging problem


should find out why the original charger stopped working in the first place... was it a faulty mother board really. anyway if the ratings on the charger you bought are for that laptop indeed, then it should power up the laptop minus the battery. ofcourse if you put in charger minus battery, dont expect it to show the charging led..just try to power it on

How do I know if my dell laptop Inspiron 6400 battery is dead? Presently if I unplug the AC cord the laptop powers off..


The battery has a digital meter on it.
(The row of LED lights).
Press the test button on the end of the row. How many LED's show up?

The power adapter may not be powerful enough to charge the battery AND operate the laptop.
Is the power adapter a "Dell" brand or a Kenninsington or other third-party adapter?
If not a Dell brand adapter, tyhen it can't charge the battery. get a Dell adapter (or borrow one to make sure).

The battery does not charge anymore ,the bios setting says idle


remove battery and reseat.
Use VOM (Volt-Ohm Meter) and phsically check to make sure the power supply is putting out advertised voltage (typically 19-20 VDC)
Make sure power supply recepticle (the female part on the laptop itself) has not been broken or reamed out such that contact is not being made.

When you plug power supply in, does the charging light on the laptop come on?
