I am knowledgeable to fixing computers, if there is a soulotion please tell me because all of my info is on it and I need my laptop. Thank you for your time.
Most modern chargers have "smart chips" to control the charging process and prevent overcharging. if the voltage falls below a pre-set minimum the charger will refuse to charge the cell(s). assuming the cells are all good (which you should never do!) i'd give them a boost with a "dumb" charger like the ones you get at the dollar store that go in your cars cigarette lighter and is designed for a cell phone. do this at your own risk and be sure you don't reverse polarity! i give you this tip assuming you're cautious and knowledgable - don't blame me for any accidents. this *IS* a risky solution.

Dell uses proprietary equipment. IF the laptop wont work when plugged in and it is the original Dell charger, you need to check the charger, if the charger wont work then the battery wont charge. Note that it might be the connection on the board inside the laptop especially if the cord got pulled on while plugged into the laptop.
Have you tried Charging with other charger? In your case it sounds like your Battery is allmost dead. So I'll suggest you to Visit HP site and download Battery testing Software. With that software you can how if your battery is ok or not. If the software shows you that you need to replace battery then there is no option rather then listening to the software.
1)Reason: a.The battery has no voltage. b.There is problem with charger,
as it has no output electric current. c.Low charging efficiency due to
external cause. 2)Solutions: a.Test whether the charger has voltage and
output electric current or not. b.Check if the charger is well contacted with
battery. c.Activate the battery with voltage and current 1.5 time higher then
the highest ones of battery. (Use this method only when the battery can't be
If you battery is totally dead you need a replacement unit - remove the battery power the unit up using external power pack then refitt the battery - if it won't charge the battery is dead. get a new battery
should find out why the original charger stopped working in the first place... was it a faulty mother board really.
anyway if the ratings on the charger you bought are for that laptop indeed, then it should power up the laptop minus the battery. ofcourse if you put in charger minus battery, dont expect it to show the charging led..just try to power it on
The battery is too low and the power supply can't charge the battery and also power the laptop at the same time.
1. Remove the battery from the laptop
2. Plug in the power cord and turn ON the laptop.
3. It should work ok.
4. After the laptop is "stable" (what 5 minutes?), you can put the battery back into the laptop while it is ON.
5. Leave the laptop ON so the battery can get charged.
6. Lower / close the lid so that the screen will turn OFFand not take up power from recharging the battery.
If this doesn't work for you, try these steps again, maybe wait a few minutes between steps.
I had to buy an new ac/dc plug piece off of ebay (cost only like $3 bucks) to sodder onto the mother board of my Acer. Somehow the little plastic/metal piece you plug into your computer comes off the mother board really easy. Acer wanted me to purchase a whole new mother board (at frigging $350), which, frankly wasn't an option. So I bought the little plug gizmo, soddered it on, and I'm doing good now.
