Power supply not charging

\015 When plugging in my PSU the latitude D5050 reported non standard PSU recognised, and now it does not work off the Power supply even though it is the correct one. it is though the laptop has detected the wrong power supply but wont detect the correct one is there any way to reset the detection process.\015

Answers :

Just a suggestion, There might be something wrong with your PSU and thats why your computer is telling you that the PSU is wrong. Go to a computer store and buy a universal power supply that fits your notebook. Ask someone there to let you test it before buying. and if it works without telling you that same error. then you have should just buy it and that tells you the other on is a fail PSU. But if it does tell you the same error. you might have something else fail on the motherboard.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1721 that will not power up. A fully charged battery will power up the laptop, but the battery will not charge in the pc. I ordered a new power adapter and the same result.
