Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook ?
Battery charging status remains constant (not increasing)
\015 A dell insprion 6000.w/ ac adapter plugged in and a good battery .\015\012The battery / ac icon shows the ac plug and lightning bolt.(mouse rollover) 58% remaining. an just stays there. I have another 6000. I pulled that battery out and just let it discharge from 81 to 58% as it show now. While saying its charging it really isnt? \015\012the percentage doesnot changing from having been plugged in for days. Is this a definite Motherbard powerplug issue? I ordered one and will be installing it.\015
I've have seen a number of different batteries do this, and I recommend what is called 're-conditioning the batteries. Do this by running the battery completely down to 0%. Then do a complete re-charge of the battery to 100% (if possible). If it charges to 100%, run it completely to 0% again and then recharge it. If it does not charge to 100%, then you may have a faulty or old battery which will need to be replaced. The AC adaptor and battery have circuitry in them and might be retaining incorrect info in them. They can be reset by unplugging them for a few minutes and then plugging them back in. There might be a specific sequence of what to unplug and when, in order to reset this circuitry. Try a couple of them. (ie. Battery, AC adaptor in to battery, AC adaptor into the wall, etc.)
