I have a Dell Inspiron 1318 and at first it said plugged in and not charging, now it says that no battery is detected. What are some troubleshooting that I can do

Try checking the connection between your battery and your laptop. Removing and reseating the battery generally solves this. However, if it doesn't, it may indicate that your battery has failed. There are many sellers that sell laptop batteries on ebay. Just purchase a new one and plug it in. Good luck!

Inspiron 1318 will not start. initially the power supply would not charge the battery. bought a new power cable. now the machine won't even turn on.

You need to take out the battery and try to power on the laptop with out it in..If it works then the battery is poched. Maybe the power supply you bought is wrong one? Did you buy it from dell?

Dell inspiron 1318 lcd screen completely dim

The backlight in your LCD has gone out. You will need to replace the entire LCD. You can look on ebay or here, you will be paying around $300 for it.

My inspiron 1318 is less than a year old,the problem now is that my laptop does not on, it just shut down then it doesnt on. even i plug the charger. pls help thanks

Call Dell tomorrow... it will still be under warranty!

One thing to try is removing the battery and running it straight from the power adaptor. If it runs, you have a bad battery.
