Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

My Dell 1501 laptop turns off as soon as the charger is connected

\015 The laptop turns off and the battery needs to be taken out for a second before it will turn on again. Also the charger has a light on it that wont turn off even it is disconnected from the socket.\015

Answers :

Sounds like you have a multiple problem going on here honestly. If you have a constant light on your charger even when its completely disconnected from the wall outlet then your charger is bad for sure, cause the light shouldn't come on unless the charger is hooked up to power.

Your battery maybe shorting out the laptop which is why it needs to be taken out for a bit before the laptop will turn on.

My suggestion would be to try a known good working charger on your laptop to make sure it turns on properly and stays on without the battery hooked up.

Then if your laptop stays on for a while then with the laptop on and the charger hooked up, connect the battery again and see if the laptop will charge up the battery to 100%. If it does then disconnect the charger and see if the laptop stays on with just the battery hooked up. It could be that the battery is drained beyond 0% and just needs a good charging. If you can't charge up the battery or the laptop still turns off to where you have to take out the battery to get the laptop to turn on then the battery is bad and would have to be replaced.
