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?

Dell batteries. my dell inspiron 1520 stopped charging. the charge light shows that its charging for about 2-4 seconds, then flashes as if its dead a few time, then goes back to acting as if it were charging. This continues to repeat and i cant get it to charge up enough for me to use it. On a thread you said that you took out the battery and tested it, but how do you test a laptop battery? NOTE: it says dell inspiron 1501 pc note book, but it's actually a 1520. it wont let me submit this as 152

I have Dell Inspiron 1521 that is 2 years old (although it has only been used about 8 months total). I got an error about it not recognizing my ac adapter (the original ac adapter from Dell that it came with) & the battery wouldn't charge. Now the battery is dead. The light on the ac adapter is green even when plugged into the laptop. When ac is plugged in to the laptop the battery icon flashes blue. When I power the laptop up, the battery icon flashes red and I get the low battery warning.


There are several possibilities. 1st and most probable is that the power module has failed, and by that it could have a wire broken in the part from the brick to the computer. It will then give just enough power to let the computer see it, but when i ... Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook

Have a Dell XPS 200. Computer was on overnight when our power went out and then came back on. It was plugged into a power strip with surge protector. Now it will not turn on, no power, no lights, no fan comes on. It's just dead. Unplugged it, plugged directly into wall, turned the switch on the back of & on. NOTHING. What could cause this? Power supply, mobo? Could the bios battery cause this? Thanks!


Most probably, the fuse in the power supply has been burnt out when the power came back. Surge protectors only protect against voltage surges, not against rise in electric current (Amperes). The fuse inside your computer's power supply protects again ... PC Desktops

A few months ago my Dell Vostro 1500 laptop started saying that my battery could not be detected. I bought this laptop new in October 2007 and did not extend my warranty.
