Dell 610c will not turn on with adapter

My Dell 610c will not turn on with adapter but works fine on Battery alone. If its up & running and I plug in the adapter it goes off instantly - not a shutdown. The battery does not charge (!) and I checked the power from the adapter as 20V. The adapter light stays on when i plug it into the Laptop. But the Laptop light does not indicate power is plugged in.

Have you seen this before?
thanks

    I checked the power from the external adapter, its OK till it is connected to the laptop. So, I assume the adapter you mention is in the box or on the MB - correct?

    I looked at the repair manual from dell, I believe the darn thing is integrated on the MB. But if that's not the case, let me know.



    Thanks much.

The adaptor is not defective.
I had the exact problem, switched adaptors and the problem remained.
There must be a problem with the laptop motherboard or power input.

My battery is not charging what can I do? it is a new battery


Check whether your ac adapter is working fine in the computer. Remove the battery and turn on the computer with the ac adapter alone. If it works then, there is no other thing that you can do but to replace your battery. It should be under a warranty because it's a new battery.They should replace it for free.

Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop periodically shuts OFF


You've checked the p/s and it has volts out. Try removing the battery and running the laptop just on the p/s. If it works like this the battery is dead. Otherwise the laptop has a problem.

If the battery is dead, buy a new battery or run it on p/s alone. Laptops should be run on battery alone as much as possible, or the battery dies.

I have a dell vostro 1700 that will not start with battery in and on mains it goes into diagnostic boot


when you say the battery is in, you refer to battery is actually plugged in while the ac adapter are connected? it means the laptop works fine with ac adapter alone? try updating the bios download from the support.dell.com

regarding the diagnostics. the partitioned where the diagnostics should be into was might wipe out during re-installation or something.

Battery light on dell latitude d410 continously flashes yellow/orangish. Does this indicate a bad battery. Works fine with cord plugged in.


There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
To verify this, unplug your laptop & try to run it on battery only. Watch out how long it will stay on (if at all). If it didn't work on battery alone, or worked but for a very short time, then your battery is defective.

Try also to reseat the main components of the notebook: the battery, the AC adapter, the memory modules, & the hard drive.
After that try switching it on & see if the problem was fixed.

Not charging


which green light?

light from the ac power adapter or the light from the battery?

if ac power adapter you are referring to try a diff power wall socket if ac power adapter still off then replace ac power adapter alone.

if battery light is off but the laptop works fine with ac adapter alone try updating the laptop BIOS.

if ac adapter light turns off when it plug to the laptop replace motherboard.

Battery has gone dead. When I plug the A/C cord in the light on the charger immediately goes out and won't charge battery.


try connecting ac adapter alone without the laptop, check if ac adapter light will stay green or blue.
try another power outlet using the ac adapter alone without the laptop check if the ac adapter light will stay as green or blue. if all fails replace ac adapter.

if ac adapter stays green or blue try connecting to the laptop without the batt, check if the ac adapter light will stay on, if yes then try connecting ac adapter to laptop with the batt plugin check if the light stays green. if not update the BIOS. if fails replace motherboard.

Dell inspiron 1300 does not see the battery


remove battery check if laptop works fine with ac adapter, if not then download the latest bios version first if fails then replace ac adapter. If laptop works fine with ac adapter. but cannot work with battery alone, download the latest bios then charge the battery for 6 hrs. if still batt not charging then replace batt. but as you mentioned you already replaced the batt and your still getting the same issue. replace motherboard.
