Question about Dell Latitude D520 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a Dell D520 and it currently says plugged in not charging 0% available. I bought a new battery thinking that this was the problem about a week ago. However it again says the same thing. As long as I am plugged into the wall I can turn the computer on and it works fine. What is the problem?

It would that you have a low powered AC adapter. The wattage output of the adapter will cause the problem you are having. Try shutting the laptop down, not suspend, and letting it charge over night. This should charge the battery. I have found that an underpowered adapter will not power both the laptop and charge the battery. You may want to check in the battery compartment for the adapter part number and see if you are using the correct one for your laptop. Please let me know how it goes.

If the battery and AC adapter work fine on a different D520 then you have an issue with the charging circuit on the motherboard. Could also be the DC adapter jack soldered to the motherboard.

Sounds a lot like you just have a broken battery. You can get a new one on ebay or laptop battery store. If you've replaced the battery, tried the bios update and it still won't charge i would assume there is an issue with your logic board. If you're out of warranty, somebody has to openthe Laptop and replace the part. The part is available on ebay. Here's a guide on how to disassemble a Laptop. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there are third party Laptop Repair Services.

My dell d520 not charging


This is an older system. The battery may have died completely, or your internal connectors to it may have degraded.

Dell laptop Battery issue (does not charge)


all i can suggest is cleaning the conectors between the battery and the laptop, unfortuantley if that doesnt work then your battery has died im afraid and a replacement is all you can do, im on my laptop now and the same thing has happened with this one although its at 63% not 0% and it will cost me £60 - £90 to replace so i know how you feel Take a look here for "cheap" batterys (i know there not as cheap as we'd all like them to be) http://www.ukbattery.net/laptop/nbdez1525.html?gclid=CIPW_rWJ-JoCFYEI3godoWx4ew
