Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?
New battery won't charge
\015 My battery died so I bought a new one. It won't charge. I have updated the bios. I have searched forums online and have tried all of the suggestions. I believe there is a problem with the motherboard.\015
The only other suggestion I would have it to check and make sure the contacts where the battery connects to your computer aren't dirty. You can clean these off sometimes by just using a pencil eraser.
