Sounds like you got it right. When the Laptop draws power it will trigger the Surgemaster to turn on the monitor. The only problem you might have, is being you are using a laptop the power supply might not draw enough power to trigger the energy saving features.
These devices work the best when a tower PC is plugged into the Master slot.

Hi my dell inspiron 1520 not starting when power button is switched on..the power light blinks and goes off..and the system doesnt start. I had shown the laptop ito dell service center and they have...


The most common reasons are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

But, if you paid for the Dell service, Dell needs to fix the problem. Sounds like they replaced the motherboard with another faulty one.

Hope this helps.

Battery will not charge on a dell d610 when plugged into outlet

I have seen this with faulty batteries.
Try changing the battery.
Also, check in the BIOS that the adapter you are using is recognised and shows a state of charging with the battery in.

one thing you may need is a new AC power cord. It could be the cord itself that is bad. If you can find someone elses to try that may help. The other thing that it could be is the internal recharging circuitry. It is one or the other. First I would try a different power cable. If that doesn't help you will need to get your laptop serviced. If you have a moment to accept and rate this and the original solution appropriately it would be greatly appreciated.

O n most dell laptops right at the base of the screen is a panel that pops off. If so there is a small card about 1-2inches wide ans 3-4 inches long. It is above the keyboard. this is an aux. power board and should have a connection on it to help power the screen. If this model dosent have this poard than the built in screen cooler is bad and you will have to replace the whole screen.

External Power on Dell 4150

It could be an issue with the power cord, it it could be an issue with the computer accepting the charge. The only way to test is to get another power cord that matches the exact same one you have, or to find a univeral power cord that is compatible and see if it will use the external power this way.
