Re: dell c640 laptop battery
Normally that is the best way. Turn your system on and let it run down without the power cord. It will shutdown automatically when the battery is really low. Then with the system off, connect the power cord and let the battery recharge. I'd let give it at least a 10 hour charge if not overnight. Should be OK by then.
When you power back up the next day, look for the "icon" that lets you check power levels. That little program should tell you loads of information that you might find useful. Look for "hints' that will extend your battery life too. The newer batteries today no longer have that "Memory Issue" they once had. Just remember re-chargeable batteries do wear out over time. You can only recharge them so many times but that's now in the hundreds with the newer ones or around 2-3 years depending on usage.

Try using the A/C adapter without the battery connected and see if your unit boots.
If it does, you will need a new battery, if it does not, question: do you see the led light up when you plug in the charger adapter ?
If you do not, you may need another charger.
first, check that the battery connection isn't blocked by a sticker or something. second: try disconnecting the battery and ac and hold the power button for 1 minute. then give the battery and ac another try.
let us know how it goes.
if it still doesn't work, time for a warranty replacement.
The small one inside is for saving the BIOS data and the Internal Clock as just like in a regular desktop. That shouldnt need replacing unless its just very old. But even if the internal battery goes bad, it should still charge and work.
If the charge light isnt comming on, then its most likely the mother board went bad or the battery. Power it on and when in windows, right click on the desktop, click Properties.
Go to the screen saver tab and at the bottom, click the power options, go to the battery and see if its even detecting it. If it doesnt detect it at all, its probably a bad mother board or connector. Even a dead battery would show.
There would be no way to know if that is the case without opening the machine. I suggest taking it to a certified laptop repair technician near you ( a Dell Store if under warranty ), and explaining the issue to them. I have not seen this happen myself ( the heatsink popping off ) but that's not to say it can't happen. I suggest having the laptop looked at sooner than later, as each time you turn it on and it overheats it reduces the life expectancy of your unit.
