Dell has problems with that motherboard not recognizing the battery or the adapter. If you get error messages about the battery not being correct or recognized, the board has issues.

If this notebook is always plugged in then the battery has shorted and won't hold a charge.

Best option is to try another battery. Another thing, if your system is more than a year old, the battery needs replacing anyway.

If you are going to use this plugged in, get another battery, charge it up and remove it.

Measure the voltage at the terminals of the battery in the laptop. If there is no supply then the power section in the lap tops main board is faulty and needs a check.
However if there is voltage then the battery must be checked if this has failed to charge and is defective. check if the cord from the adapter is not short as it will result in DC power cut off.

Hi

Can you please try to leave laptop switched off
plug in laptop and leave until the light on front goes green or at least 2/3 hrs

then unplug power cord
switch on laptop and use it or leave it until it looses all power and switches off

then recharge until green

when battery is fully charged always un plug and use on battery power
until it reaches about 10% before recharging

some people even remove their battery to preserve it if they always use power cord

if this does not sort the problem please come back to us

many thanks

My acer laptop will not charge, if the ic port connector is moved then sporadically the lap top will charge. But then dies soon after


start the machine up with the power cord in it, and after it starts remove the battery, the pc should stay on, and be usable. if not then the port is bad. if it does, then its the battery that will not charge.

Try to measure the input voltage. If the Vans battery falls to less than 10.5 V it may stop converting. The battery should be charged well before using converter.

Verify that the light on the power block is green with the cable only connected to the wall. If the light goes out when it's connected to the PC the your motherboard is bad.

sounds like the power jack at back of computer has gone bad, check voltage of battery and see if it has good power if not then it is dead and not getting charged through port the jack at rear generally requires MB replacement and is very expensive and cheaper to get new laptop, u can remove HD from old lap top and copy data over. another choice is to get stand alone charger for laptop battery and use battery mode,

if battery tested good them there is slight chance power switch is bad

I have a gateway ma7 laptop and press power and get nothing


When the computer is off, unplug the power cord from the laptop and then plug it back in. See if the charge light (lightning bolt symbol next to the led) comes on or turns green/blue. If it doesn't your power supply may not be working, even if the light on the supply is on. Second is the battery may be damaged. Remove the battery and see if you can power on at all.
If it boots with only the cord, the battery is bad/shorted forcing shutdown.

My lap topwill not turn on.


Try to check if your AC adapter has a light itself. If it the light is off. Then try a known good adapter. If the AC light is green, then try to wiggle the cord from the port and see if it ain't loose. Try to also check if the AC pin is not bent or broken.

It could be one of three things. It could be a bad battery, a bad ac adapter, or the recharging circuitry could be bad. I would try pulling the battery out, and see if the laptop will startup and run strictly off of the ac adapter. If that does not work, you have a bad ac adapter. If that works, and the battery has any charge left, try running it strictly on the battery. If it doesnt work, you have a bad battery. If it does work, the circuitry is bad and you will probably need new motherboard. One other thing you can check is where the ac adapter and battery plug into the laptop, and make sure there is no corrosion that could be causing a short.
