Wet Dell XPS M1210

My Dell XPS M1210 was left outside in the rain, cover closed, power off. I dried it out for a week, and now everything works perfectly except the battery will not recharge. Do I need to replace the DC power jack or the motherboard? All applications work great except for the battery recharge.

I would try cleaning the terminals on the battery and the computer with an old toothbrush and simple green or other multi-purpose cleaner, that doesn't leave residue.

I have a Dell XPS M1210 laptop for which I have just purchased a new 9-cell compatible battery. It worked great for a couple of hours, but now shuts off immediately when unplugged from the AC power supply....


You might want to try what I did when I had a completely discharged battery for my Dell Laptop. I attached the battery to the computer, make sure the computer is off and plug in the charger for a full twenty four hours (undisturbed). And this really worked. I had no problems with the battery. Good luck.

Dell xps m1210 won't power up with new battery. Check notes.


If it is working fine with a fresh battery then it is not a motherboard problem. It is either a bad ac adapter jack on the motherboard or the actual ac adapter cord is not working. Try cables2go.com as they have replacement ac adapters for almost everything under the sun. Hope this helps.

Dell m1210 does not boot up - quickly powers off


I suspect the safety circuits is detecting a big power drain. What I would do is pull one thing off at a time and see if it stays on. Such like hard drive, memory, and anything else you can. Even disconnecting the LCD if you have too.

Another possibility is that your battery is bad. Try to boot up without the battery and just on AC. No help? Maybe the AC is bad. Try running on the battery alone and no AC.

That pretty much covers everything. If nothing works above, it is the motherboard. :(

Xps m1210 is dead and no power even with a new ac adapter


The M1210 suffers from the same die packaging problem with its Nvidia GeForce Go7400 chip as many dell laptops do. However dell does not admit this, and has only extended the warranties for recently manufactured laptops.

To get Dell to fix your laptop, despite it not being covered by the extended warranty, follow the instructions I have posted here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?p=4611553#post4611553

Dell is trying to cover up a critical flaw in what is supposed to be a high performance gaming laptop. It is my goal to make Dell come clean about this issue. Lets all let them know that they cannot get away with screwing over their customers like this.
