Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I recently bought a Dell replacement battery from a non-Dell website from Amazon for my Dell Studio 1558 but it says that it won't charge because Dell cannot recognize it. Is there a way to solve this problem without purchasing anything? I have surfed the internet and websites say I need to buy an AC adapter. What does an adapter do? Is it necessary?

Your ac adapter is just a charger to charge the laptop and it does not have anything to do with 3rd party battery. You need genuine battery to make it work. Third party batteries generally lack the logic circuit that completes the battery sensor circuit - the only solution is a Dell battery. If they are claiming it will work than they need to help you or refund your money. Hope this helps.

Why does dell studio 1558 backlit keyboard not work

If the keyboard has been replaced recently it may not be connected correctly. If not, either it does need to be replaced or you may have a bad driver. For a bad driver you can go to, go to Support By Product and search your service tag and find the driver for your keyboard and download/install it.

I have dell studio 1558 laptop.The ATI card on the motherboard got burned.However i learnt that the whole series of i3 processors in the studio 15 were faulty and if i buy the same motherboard again t

I would not consider replacing the motherboard, in fact Dell should be replacing the laptop for a design that does not have these heat related issues, I think if you made enough noise about this particular line they may replace what you have lost.
