Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook ?

Battery kills my laptop

\015 It works great on ac adapter as long as the battery is removed. As soon as I instal the battery, the screen locks up. When I start it with the battery in, the screen won't light up, but the fan runs. I have tried a new battery with the same results.\015

Answers :

Oh dear! My best guess from the information you've provided, is that possibly the charging unit in the laptop is faulty?
\015\012
\015\012It really sounds like there is a short-circuit somewhere. I've come across many, many laptops that have faulty charging units... they still work from the mains just fine, but they won't charge a battery. I think yours could be trying a little too hard to charge your battery.
\015\012
\015\012In any case, there is no software or hardware settings that can cause this, and you've eliminated the battery from the equation... so you're left with the laptop being faulty. I'd get a tech to put a multimeter onto the contacts in the battery compartment to see what kind of voltage it's putting out... or if it's grounding somewhere. (which would explain why inserting the battery locks the poor computer up!)
