Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?
Dell Inspiron works on battery only. No AC, no charger.
\015 Read the post on running the battery/charger utility, but there is nothing in my Control Panel, Classic View about it? The blue power light is on on my charger, and it seems to fit snug in the power jack on the back of the laptop, but no power???? Help\015
Get a volt meter and be sure the power is coming to the plug, you may have a broken cord. if the problem is not there see if you have a setting in the bios for dc only. some older dells have a bios setting for the power settings in bios.
