Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

Charger not recognized

\015 The plug that connects to my Dell laptop got very hot and now the computer is not recognizing that it is plugged in. The charger's green light is still on, but it does not appear to be recharging the battery. I just bought a new battery a couple of months ago and was wondering if I should try replacing the charger or will it not work? Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

Folks.
The issue with most of the Dell charger issues rekated to a new charger not being able to charge the battery is the fact that Dell has a screwy proprietary circuit design in their laptops and chargers.
It seems that the Dell laptops are designed so
only Dell chargers will work. While other
brands of chargers will power the laptop when plugged in,
they will not charge the battery.
They do this so they have a monopoly on their chargers and thus can charge a frickin' fortune for their, Dell chargers.
Want them to change this? don't buy Dell products for a while. If enough people ban them, they would change this **** overnight!
If you get the message for the AC adapter not recogonized this a failure of either the Ac adapter or the motherboard connector. Try another good know AC adapter or try the AC adapter on another Dell laptop. if another Ac adapter works fine then it is an issue with the motherboard. If in warranty contact Dell technical support and they'll do the needful. If it is outside the warranty then a local technician will be the best option as Dell does not repair the motherboard.
