Careful!!! I would look for a smaller computer store in the area as I have had terrible luck with best buy. They took 3 weeks longer than the two day quote for diagnosing the problem. Then they forgot to call me to tell me it was ready... they overcharged me, didn't fix the problem and then held my computer hostage. I live in a metro area and had much better and personable luck with a local computer help store..

Any good computer shop can help.. Maybe make sure you have a backup (on usb drive or whatever) before you take it in.. Or instruct them to do a backup.. Get a quote for a re-build as well.. There is probably a partition on the pc with the windows 'restore' information, where the whole windows operating system can be restored quite easily. There is probably two to three hours work (time, anyway) in doing the job. Actually, most people know a relative or friend that can do the job quite easily.. cheap that way!
good luck with it.. Rgds,

What exactly is wrong with it? In my experience Best Buy does not do the job right in all cases. I fix computers as a second job, and have seen some pretty sh***y work from them. Take to a computer place they may do a better but thats just how I feel. Ultimately its still your decision.

Battery won?t charge and AC adaptor not recognized


I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 that just turned two years old.

After one year, my dell 6-cell battery started to falter, so Ipurchased a new 9-cell battery. This worked fine until a couple ofmonths ago when I noticed that my 65W adaptor was frayed. I bought anew 65W Dell Inspiron 6000 ac adapter andit worked well for about a week until I noticed that my battery wasn’tcharging at times. If I was patient, or unplugged the adapter andplugged it back in, the battery began charging and all was saved.

This lasted only a short time until my Dell Inspiron 6000 batterywouldn’t charge at all for long periods of time, and sometimes thecomputer wouldn’t turn on, even if plugged into the wall. I thought itmight still be the adaptor, so I borrowed a fully functioning 90W Delladapter from a family member to test the system. This worked better,but still not great.

When I removed the battery and started only fromAC power, the functionality was also intermittent. Usually, if thecomputer actually started, I received the start-up error “The Inspiron 6000 AC AdapterType could not be determined, etc. etc. etc.” After pressing F1, thecomputer booted, but if the battery wasn’t in, the computer didn’tusually last long before shutting off. Unsure if maybe the battery wasthe problem, I put the 6-cell Inspiron 6000 batteryback in, and it too wouldn’t charge, although (together with the 90Wadapter) my computer would at least start more consistently if pluggedin. The error remained however, and sometimes the system stopsrecognizing power and switches to my ever dwindling battery power untilthe adapter is recognized again.

The problem is with the jack on the motherboard inside our Inspiron 6000’s. This is the jack you plug your power plug into on the back of the laptop.

Somehow the jack gets worn and does not make correct contact withthe laptop so the Laptop does not see the power supply as a legit Dellbrand. So the powersupply will not charge the laptop battery and run the laptop at the same time.

DC power jack repair guide. Do-it-yourself instructions.

Modern laptops are all sold with built-in wireless laptop ac adapter.Some power notebooks used by corporate road warriors will have powerfulcellular adapters that connect the laptop to the Internet via the cellphone infrastructure

A bad connection between DC-IN power jack on the system board and the system board is a very common problem with dell pa 12,dell e1505 and Dell Inspiron 6000notebooks. If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix theproblem by resoldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it’s stillunder warranty, it would be fixed at no charge to you. Problem symptoms:

  • Laptop randomly shuts down without any warning.
  • Power LED and battery charge LED start flickering when you wigglethe power cord or the AC adapter tip on the back or your laptop.
  • The battery will not get charged.
  • When you plug ac adapter for laptop, the laptop appears to be dead and there is no LED * activity at all (DC-IN jack on the system board is broken).
To fix the problem, you have to take your laptop apart, remove the system board to resoleder or replace the DC-IN jack. dell pa 12 and Dell Inspiron 6000 disassembly guides will help you to remove the system board. Take a closer look at the power jack on the system laptop board witha magnifying glass. In most cases you get the power problem because ofa bad connection between the DC jack and the system board, you’ll see acrack between the DC jack connector and the system board.

I have a inspirion 6000 it says cant find hard


You may have a bios setting to check, it also may be damage on the connector or on the actual south bridge from over heating. I would load up into the bios and see if your drive is being detected and has the proper settings, try a default bios setting and see if that helps.

Problems identifying and loading dell inspiron 6000 drivers


Go to www.support.dell.com and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag",(serial number) of the 820 laptop. Dell keeps a listing of drivers for every customer's computer they sell.

Inspiron 6000 sound


Hi,

Don't worry. It could be that the sound drivers are not instaled. Simply download the drivers from support.dell.com by entering the service tag. The sound should be back. The battery has nothing to do with sound. From the same website, install the BIOS update. That shoule get the battery message go away. Incase that does not happen, then you may have to buy a battery. The batteries have 1 year of warranty from the date of invoice.

I work in DELL, so please try what I ahve mentioned and you should be happy!!! If not, post a message.

Problems with Dell Inspiron 6000 Battery ? DELL Inspiron 6000 laptop battery is popular, why ?


You can also pick up the batteries less expensive than most computer places at batteries plus. And yes it sounds as though it is the batteries charge is getting low, especially if it runs fine when the battery is out and you have it plugged in.
