Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?

Although my Inspiron will run on the mains it will not charge the battery. I have replaced the battery and charger but with no result. The charging light flashes red and then turns blue. Can you advise if this is most likely to be a motherboard problem. Many thanks Allen Easto

Hi there!

-yes, it is already a motherboard problem if battery and ac adapter has been replaced already.

thanks
