Having problems with your Dell Latitude C840 Notebook ?

My laptop dell c840 charging status apears as idle i purchase 90w adapter and purchase 2new batries but still i am facing problem


Answers :

It is more than likely the actual plug on the computer that you are plugging the adapter into. Very common issue with Dell portables and if youre still under the service warranty you will get a new computer. I worked for dell tech support for a few years and I dont think theyve changed that policy.

\015\012You could try running the diagnostics to see if there is an issue that it can detect, but it's not likely.
\015\012
\015\012Tap the F4 key while the computer is starting and choose the option that says "Run Diagnostics" or "Boot to utility partition".

I have Dell Inspiron 1521 that is 2 years old (although it has only been used about 8 months total).
