Having problems with your Dell Studio 1737 Laptop ?

Beeping AC Power Adapter

\015 I have a Dell Studio 1737, and I began having a problem today that I've never had before. I have two ac power adapters (just in case one of them decides to inexplicably kick it, as they have done before), and I'm getting the same problem when I use them, so I'm pretty sure it's my computer that is the problem.I turned on my computer this morning, and noticed that, although it was plugged into the ac power adapter and the ac power adapter into my outlet, it was running on battery power. Thinking that this specific adapter had decided to die on me, I begrudgingly switched to my other back up (both are relatively new adapters -- less than 6 months old -- and the computer is equally as new). The same thing happened, only, I noticed that the green light on my power adapter was not lighting up. It would light up when I plugged it into the outlet, but when I plugged the adapter into my computer, it would send out this high-pitched beep, and the light would go out. I did a bit of experimenting with the different adapters in different outlets, surge protectors, etc, and every time the same thing happened. I was able to get the adapter to work once, but after 5 minutes, I heard the squeal of death, and the adapter had stopped working once again. I haven't been able to get it to work since.Any help would be greatly appreciated, because I'm completely lost!Thanks!\015

Answers :

I've had problems with Dell AC adapters before. The usual cause that I've seen is that connection of the output cable from the adapter to the PC becomes intermittent. The units I had developed problems where the cable enters the adapter though it could happen at the connector itself too. If it is causing it to squeal and die then the cable is probably shorting out. You can test this theory by moving the cable around at those points and seeing if it dies or comes back on.

With my adapters, there was a strap that could be used to clamp the cable around the adapter. On my replacement unit adapter I quit using the strap and it worked okay after that.

Good luck!

Any idea what causing the problem?

Annoying beep When my laptop is plugged in to the power cord, it beeps often, sometimes up to 40 beeps per minutes. It is not the battery, as when I remove the battery, the beeping persists. I hear no beeping when I use the machine on battery only, but the battery does not seem to be holding a charge, so I think it must not be being fully charged. Is this a common problem? Can you help me troubleshoot it? Many thanks. Blue skies, Lark
