Battery charging issue

Answers :

Check your mains adapter plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.

\015\012If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. I suggest you get a quote first.

Battery/configuration/ Hi, I have had this hp pavilion dv 4000 for 2 years (bought it new) and I noticed that If I disconect the mains from the laptop, the screen goes blank, but the pc stays on. If I connect the mains back, the image doesn't come back, so I have to switch the pc on and re-start it. If I start the pc without mains, just running from the battery, it shows the boot up process, the logo of windows, but then stays black and doesn't start up as normally does In the 2 years I didn't u

Power my Presario R3240us has had the battery replaced (recently) and the ac power supply replaced but even with the power cable attached the laptop continually runs on battery power only and on occassion will show where the ac power adapter is charging the battery. After a certain length of time the battery icon reappears (more often than not) and will work until the battery drains. The ac adapter only minimally charges the battery.

I own a 1 year old Dell Studio 1535. Its original battery died, so I purchased a generic one online. When I turned on the laptop with the battery only (not plugged in), it said battery not recognized,but still the laptop continued to run. The battery was only 47% full. When I plugged in the adapter to charge the battery, it said "Plugged in, but not charging." What should I do to get it to charge? Or is it impossible to charge a generic battery with an original dell adapter?
