Should find out why the original charger stopped working in the first place... was it a faulty mother board really. anyway if the ratings on the charger you bought are for that laptop indeed, then it should power up the laptop minus the battery. ofcourse if you put in charger minus battery, dont expect it to show the charging led..just try to power it on

When I connect charger with my laptop 30 sec show battery is charging after 30 sec one message show:- QuickSet The Ac power adapter type cannot be determined. your system will operate slower...


del recognition circuit may have failed in charger , or could be fine central pin on charger plug or laptop plug has broken connection,it is used to tell laptop that this is genuine dell charger.If you remove battery will laptop work off charger.if does then definitely one of the three problem possible . for first only soln try another dell charger first,often has to be one to suit your model ,common dell problem ,if then work and charge battery ,you will need to replace charger as recognition circuit failed. If either of last 2 can repair but need to pull apart repair broken connection ,or open up laptop and check power connection and repair connection . If you remove battery will laptop work off charger.if does the definately one of the three problem possible . for first only soln try another dell charger first,often has to be one to suit your model ,common dell problem ,if then work and charge battery ,you will need to replace charger as recognition circuit failed.

I bought a new dell charger and it's not being recognized.It's a PA-12 family charger and in the list is supposed to work with my 1501 Inspiron. Tried bios update.Microsoft ACPI is 6.0.6 already to.


Check in BIOS and see whether its recognised there..If its not, it could be the Motherboard which is the culprit here...if system is Out of Warranty, and its charging, then forget the recognising issue...other Contact Dell's Out Of warranty for repair options.Would suggest using Dell spares for the system than going with other 3rd party supported adaptors

    Can I use ther Targus Adaptor for Inspiron 1525


    On the long term, a power adapter with a bigger amperage can damage battery and battery charger.

    Better to get an adapter with same specs as the 65/70W one , or an original replacemant:

    My Dell Inspiron 1501 won't charge


    If you're covered, Dell can replace the power converter on the motherboard for you. Yes, I have experience with this and yes, that should fix it.

    Replacement battery for Dell Inspiron 1501 won't charge


    If your old battery was doing the same (not charging), then is is because the charger is not charging the battery. Do you have a friend with a Dell laptop? Maybe you can use a borrowed charger to test and see if it will charge the batteries. To answer your question , no Dell does not have anything built in to prevent you from using a 3rd party battery.
    If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
    Thanks, Joe
