Having problems with your Dell Latitude D410 Notebook ?

Battery light on dell latitude d410 continously flashes yellow/orangish. Does this indicate a bad battery. Works fine with cord plugged in.


Answers :

There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
To verify this, unplug your laptop & try to run it on battery only. Watch out how long it will stay on (if at all). If it didn't work on battery alone, or worked but for a very short time, then your battery is defective.

Laptop is plugged in. Notice on screen that battery was low, even with it plugged in, and now no power lights on. Adapter light is still on indicating outside power supply on. Removed and reinserted battery. It came on once and went dark. It's about four years old, I think. Do batteries finally wear out so there is ultimately no recharge? Or could it be the power supply into the computer. It was working fine yesterday.

We have a Dell latitude d600 and the old battery had gone bad some time ago, would charge, but lasted maybe 10 minutes. We bought a new OEM Dell battery for it, and put it on charge all night. The charge indicator light does not come on, nor does it place any charge on the battery. The battery came with a 23% charge on it, and after charging all night, no change. The computer works just fine with the power cord. Any solutions?


More than likely there is a problem with the motherboard. I would suggest replacing it as trying to find a new/used board can be difficult and the labor to change can be pricey. ... Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
