Welcome to fixya

That could be a problem ... i hope it is just the power cord

sometimes the plug in back of the computer needs to be fixed and that you would have to take to a shop to have it fixed

i hope this helps you out have a good day

Dell m5110 laptop won't charge new battery and ac adapter is not recognized in bios


Try another AC cord/charger with the EXACT same specs as original. Is the battery a genuine Dell battery, if not return it? Some aftermarket laptop batteries don't play well with your computer, the pin-out connections aren't correct and MAY be a fire hazard.

Laptop wont recognize charger


Maybe you did damage a component due to overheating? What caused the Laptop to overheat? Does the battery work on another laptop?

I have a sony VaIO laptop model PCG-3E2L, and i have notice that it has been turning off by it self. i checked the ac adapter, and its ok.


The heat sink may be clogged with dust and ifthe BIOS temperature sensor controls the fan speed then it may be compensatingfor the reduced cooling by the dust build-up.
If you are not using your laptop on a flat surface, it may beobstructing the cooling vents on the bottom of the laptop. Your laptop fanmay be faulty and not spinning freely, in this case replace the fan.
Check the fan and heat sink assembly and remove the dust, loosen the dust anduse a can of compressed air to clear away the dust. A laptop fanassisted cooling pad may solve your problem

At first the computer would shut off after a few minutes, but now it will not turn on at all. I have verified that it is receiving power. Any ideas?


Battery is dead or dying. Replace it.
AC adapter is not plugged in. Plug it in.
AC adapter has failed, Replace it.
Computer is overheating. Use compressed air to blow dust build-up out of vents and fans.

Power soft touch power switch not working


I am having this problem and found info on another forum saying that the switch is located just above the fan, which causes dust to build up on it.

Hi. I bought a generic dell charger replacement for my laptop and it doesn't charge the battery, I was wondering if there was some way to make the computer properly recognize it.


Unfortunatly there is no way to make a 3rd party AC adapter function with certain dell models. The packaging ont he adapter you purchased may say that it is compatable with your computer but dell units are very specific when it comes to which AC adapters will work properly with them. The best thing you can do is return the 3rd party adapter and purchase the correct one from dell directly. The reason that dall laptops don't all work with 3rd part ACAs is becuase of a signaling line build into the laptop's motherboard. This line enables communication from the SuperIO controller on the board with a corresponding EPROM built into the AC adapter. If the SuperIO controller receives a signal from the wrong EPROM (AKA wrong AC adapter) then it will not recognize the power source and may or may not work properly or at all.

Please go to this website:
http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/my_systems_info/details?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&~tab=2&~ck=mn
And enter the service tag located on the bottom of your dell laptop. This will allow you to navigate to a page with your exact system confoguration information. Here you will be able to see the correct dell part number for the orginial AC adapter for your unit. You can then order this adapter from dell. Even though dell adapters are more expensive than generic ones, they are guaranteed to work.

I had the battery not recognized on boot up. then


the Dell AC adapter has a sensing pin so the bios can determine the wattage of the adapter. If the system cannot ID the adapter, the battery charger circuit is disabled. You'll need a functional DELL ac adapter to get the battery to charge

I can not start my laptop.


Try removing the battery and try it just on AC.

What happens exactly? Does it turn on but nothing happens or is it not even powering up at all?

If it doesnt power up at all then try another AC adapter.
