Having problems with your Dell Latitude D600 Notebook ?

The battery does not charge anymore ,the bios setting says idle

\015 How can I get the battery to charge again? Is it a bios setting? or am I missing something? It worked fine until I took a trip and partway thru the trip the battery quit charging?\015

Answers :

Remove battery and reseat.
\015\012Use VOM (Volt-Ohm Meter) and phsically check to make sure the power supply is putting out advertised voltage (typically 19-20 VDC)
\015\012Make sure power supply recepticle (the female part on the laptop itself) has not been broken or reamed out such that contact is not being made.
\015\012When you plug power supply in, does the charging light on the laptop come on?
I'm in the same situation. Apparently, the motherboard contains a \015\012chipset that controls the power charging to the battery by identifying \015\012the charger type. I updated my Bios & flashed, bought new baterry \015\012and check with 2nd charger with no luck.
\015\012Solution.. Replace Motherboard ( in other words trow your laptop and get\015\012 a new one)

Bad motherboard I've been told that the motherboard is bad on my Dell Inspiron E1505 that is less than 2 years old. I thought it was the power cord because sometime it would charge and sometimes it wouldn't. Now it is dead. My question, if I replace the motherboard, will that fix the power problem and will it wipe my laptop set up clean or will it be the same as before we couldn't power it up anymore?
