Having problems with your Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook ?

Battery won't charge on my Inspiron E1505

\015 I bought an aftermarket battery for my computer. The battery worked fine for awhile, but I cleaned my computer out and completely reinstalled everything. It seems that ever since then my battery will only charge to about 5% and won't charge any farther. I have to leave the power cord hooked up all the time and as soon as I unplug it, the laptop dies. Sometimes when I turn it on, I get a message that the computer doesn't recognize the power cord, but it is the one that I got with the pc. Any suggestions? Also, I am showing only 54.4GB of hard drive. I know it is much more. It is partitioned, but how can I solve this and will I lose everything on my pc? Thanks.\015

Answers :

The battery problem could be due to a bad ac adapter or a loose motherboard connector. Try another good known Ac adapter and see if it works. For the partation issue in XP do a right click on MY computer and go to MANAGE and a computer management screen will open. Under computer management go to disk management. Chech for any unallocated space. If you find any unallocated space you can do a right click and create a new partation. You wont loose any data in this.
Check your power adapter. Check its output voltage and current. I think your problem caused by the insufficient current that needed to charge your battery. If it's the problem, you need to buy new power adapter. ^_^
