Could be many things, not necessarily in this order, but the ac adapter has gone bad(highly suspect), the power converter/charge board has gone bad, the power plug receptacle has an intermittent break in it from years of use (might be able to re-solder that one back on the board ) - or the new battery is not as new as you thought. In any event, You should send it to an authorized repair center - looking at a $100 bill or more.

First of all, 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

What about this Dell Vostro 1000 battery


the seller looks ok ...the things to look for is first to be new..no refurbished ,,second try to buy it not formated and do it yourself by charging it for about 12 hours ..and completely empty it for a few times...than see that for the same model of laptop can be more than one model of battery ..different on tha size and so with charge life time bigger or smaller....I will go for a midle size if available ...and use two of them ...to increse independence from the sourse..a much to big one might be inconvenient ...and of course one original is to be prefered on a copy or one that just fits...
the UK site is an excelent choice ...stay away from chinese stuff and cheap deals..

Vostro 1000 wont charge also 2nd machine same model has a ic blown on mainboard where can i get a schematic diagram also is there a general known fault with the charging circuiton this model . Rgds


Schematics for Dells are generally unavailable.
The not charging is normally due to a failure on the charging circuit or damage to the power plug (If ac adapter will not run system or if you have to play with the power connection.)
Replacement motherboards start at about $75

Batt light flashes 4 red and 1 green over and over vostros laptop


Hi there. If your battery light is flashing 4 red and one green on the battery light indicator (as in the one next to the power and hdd led), then this is an indication that your battery is nearing the end of it's life, and it's time to get a new one. It will last a bit longer, depending on how much you use your laptop, but there will come a time when it won't work at all.
