Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

My computer does not reconize my ac adapter

\015 When I turn on the computer I get an error message that starts "The AC adapter type cannot be determined..."- The green light on the adapter is on.- When I ran the battery diagnostics, the adapter failed with a error code of 3600:0649. - When I press the battery status light on the battery, none of the LEDs illuminate. - I can power the computer with the adapter, but the battery will not recharge.Is it the charger, the battery or something else.Thanks\015

Answers :

If the BIOS cannot ID the charger, the battery will not be charged.\015\012\015\012Cause:\015\012\015\012There is a fine wire in the middle of the canon plug to the computer, that sends an ID of the adapter to the BIOS. If that pin is bent or broken, then the system will be powered, but the battery charger is disabled. If another AC adapter for a Dell D-series is available, see if the issue goes away with diferent adapter. If no adapter is available, they are <$50 on Ebay.\015\012\015\012If you replace the AC adapter, and the issue still occurs, then you'll need to replace the motherboard.
