Having problems with your Dell Latitude D600 Notebook ?

Battery/charging issue The computer wont charge the battery. It will work with the battery(which is at 75% now), but when I plug up the a/c adapter it switches power modes correctly to save the battery life, but it wont charge it back up?


Answers :

This generally indicates that the battery is worn out and needs replaced. I would also bet that the battery light is flashing orange. This is afterall, just a battery, and batteries eventually wear out. Replace the battery and everything should be fine.
