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

Adapter does not chanrge


make sure its plugged in correctly and the wall plug is plugged tightly. I had a Dell C840 when the
charger got power it had a green diode that lit up. You could test your power supply with a volt ohm
meter. if the VOM is not showing any power coming from the power supply (assuming you have the
VOM setup to match the power output of the power supply) then the power supply is probably bad.
If it works then it could be the computers connection or battery.

Laptop will not charge..


First of all, it could definitely be something with the battery. Batteries have a finite life-time, and yours might had reached it's end...

Anyway, chargers for laptops are quite "unique" for each brand, sometime even for each model. There's a chance that by your "trial and error" you might even caused more damage... :/ You should CAREFULLY take a look on what your laptop consumes, in terms of VOLTAGE and CURRENT. Connecting incompatible charger (even if it's plug fits perfectly) might (and often will) damage your battery and/or the motherboard.

With that said, try replace the battery (if you can try it without buying a new one - better), then use your ORIGINAL charger. Of that doesn't work - use a replacement branded charger. If that doesn't work either - you might need to check it the laptop still works.

Good luck!

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

Green light cuts off when plugging into laptop


Replace the charger, it probably overheat and died.
Try with a voltmeter to measure the output power (usually aroud 19 V DC)
Then the tricky part, try to power something else with the charger , something who might work with the output power (a car light bulb for exemple).
If it does work then you have a short cut on the motherboard of your laptop if it's the case replace the laptop, it's the hell of a job to repair the motherboard...
good luck

My wife's laptop stopped working today. It won't boot up. The power doesn't go on at all. When I plus the power cord in, the green light on the charger goes out. I'm wondering if something fried.


Hello,
Green light of the charger off means there is a short circuit, maybe exactly at the plug, so battery is impossible to charge. If not this, smth probably has fried.

    Charger not recognized


    Folks.
    The issue with most of the Dell charger issues rekated to a new charger not being able to charge the battery is the fact that Dell has a screwy proprietary circuit design in their laptops and chargers.
    It seems that the Dell laptops are designed so
    only Dell chargers will work. While other
    brands of chargers will power the laptop when plugged in,
    they will not charge the battery.
    They do this so they have a monopoly on their chargers and thus can charge a frickin' fortune for their, Dell chargers.
    Want them to change this? don't buy Dell products for a while. If enough people ban them, they would change this **** overnight!
