Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 PC Notebook ?

I have a Dell Studio laptop. Will power on with

\015 I have a Dell Studio laptop. Will power on with either AC adaptor or battery, but will not boot with just battery. Dell advised hard drive problems and reinstallation of Vista system, this seems drastic as boots and works just fine when AC adaptor is plugged in. I could just keep using plugged in,my life is not that active, but it seems a shame not having it work to optimum.\015

Answers :

This should have a "battery check" button on the battery itself. Remove the battery and press the button. If it reveals that the battery is not fully charged, or you cannot get it to take full charge, perhaps all that you need is a new battery. If the battery is failing the check the system makes on it at boot, it won't.
