The center of the connetor for the AC adapter to the system has a very fine wire that is the sensing wire for the battery charger. It ID's the type adapter connected to the system. If the wire is bent or broken, the system cannot ID the adapter and the battery charger will not function.

If the wire is bent or broken, then replace the AC adapter. ALso try a different adapter and see if the issue occurs with it. If the issue happens with more than one adapter or if this adapter functions normmaly on another system, then the motherboard will need to be replaced.

Have you tried downloading the latest version of Internet Explorer?

See if you have the latest version installed by following the below link:


If it is the latest version, try uninstalling IE:

1. Click Start > Control Panel > Programs and Features
2. On the left hand window pane, click "View installed updates".
3. Scroll down to the "Microsoft Windows" section. Locate Internet Explorer (8, 9, 10 etc.). Right-click and select "uninstall". Click "Yes" to confirm.

Once this is done, go to the link above and download and install the latest version again. See if that fixes it.

Hi Diane,

That is a read error on the hard drive. Depending on whether or not the machine is in warranty, Dell should be able to replace the drive. If its out of warranty they you're best getting a local computer guy to replace the drive for you and reinstall your operating system.

Many thanks,

You got the wrong driver/program/version to communicate between computer and OBD device, most cases its wrong software for the vehicle-type, for instance some programmes cant read trucks/lorrys if you got a programme for cars or vice versa.

The best bet is to use an external USB Sound adapter as the internal sound system is part of the main board on the computer. You cannot replace the sound card inside a laptop.

You may need to "wipe" or reformat your entire C drive to be able to install Windows program again. I would suggest installing WIN7 program as WIN XP is at its end of life cycle for that operating system and Microsoft may not support it any longer.

If possible try installing WIN7 once again, and if requested to reformat or do an entire install, choose YES.

WIN 7 should then reformat your C drive, erase everything that is on it and then install as WIN7 program.

Be sure you have your program license key to install WIN7.
