Having problems with your Dell XPS M1330 Notebook ?

My computer is not detecting my battery. Also it appears not to be charging


Answers :

Hello there:
This is what i recommend that you do ok?
(1) unplug the laptop and remove the battery. Inspect the power cord and see if the cord is good and the slot where the cord hooks into the laptop is not loose.
(2) Inspect the contact points where the battery makes contact and see if any of the pins are loose (they should all be tight). or dirty or look dull If so using a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol clean the points really good and let dry. along with the batterey contact's
(3) press the power button on for 10 seconds.
(4) reinsert the battery in the laptop and plug in the power cord and reboot the machine and once it has fully booted now you should see the battery charging signal on the taskbar if not i would have the battery checked out to see if their is a dead cell.
Replace the battery if needed ok?
I hope that this has been very helpful for you.
Best regards Michael
Hi,\015\012 Shutdown the system , and disconnect the battery from the laptop.Also disconnect the Ac adapter. There is a button the battery , press and check if there are any light the glow on the battery. If there are no lights that glow the battery is dead.\015\012
\015\012Press and hold down the power button for 10 sec. after removing the battery and the Ac adapter\015\012Reinsert the battery and connect the Ac adapter\015\0121.Power on the system and tap on f2key slowly five to six times on the Dell logo screen\015\0122. You would enter the blue screen \015\0123. Using your down arrow key, go to the option that says battery info or battery health . Check if there are any error messages on the same. If the battery is not detected you would have to replace the battery\015\012
