Dell :: E1705: Battery No Longer Powers My Laptop (NOT Bad Battery)
Dec 1, 2009
Last night I was using my E1705 running on battery when the thing just suddenly zapped off. I had recently glanced at the battery meter which was 75% full. I pressed the button on the actual battery which shows 3 of 5 lights on the charge meter.
The battery itself is only 1 month old and has been performing flawlessly. I just thought it was something random so I plugged the machine in and it started up.
I didn't think anything else of it till today when I went to move my laptop, removed the power cord, and the laptop turned off. I checked the physical battery meter which still reads 3 of 5 lights .....
Dell Latitude D630.... I bought a new battery about 2 months back (had the old one for a good 6 years before it finally bit the dust) and I've had no problems with it. The test button still shows all 5 bright and green. I recently replaced my adapter because it was getting old (almost 3 years) and it stopped charging since part of it's wires were frayed. The new adapter is not charging my computer.
It's Dell made so it shouldn't have a problem with the no-charge chip put in and it's New, not refurbished. I've tried different outlets, restarting computer, updating BIOS, checking battery, and lots of fun stuff in between.
I'm at a loss of what to do because without it charging it, I may as well have just stuck to my old one and saved the money. I'd rather have this issue fixed than never use my battery ever.
Everything was fine, then when I would plug in a USB peripheral into a USB port, it shuts down. I tried it several times and now the laptop will not turn on at all. I have searched on google but there is not an issue like mine. Unlike others I do not even get lights or any hard drive noises. Is the motherboard fried?
I'm wondering how can I run my XPS 1530 longer than couples of hours on 6 cell battery ? how about 9 cell users ? Can your battery last more to 4 hours ?
With lowest brightness, only 1-2 tasks running, how many hours can you get with 6 cell and 9 cell? I get only 1.5-2 hr on 6 cell which is actually quite bad and have to take adapter everywhere every time...hoping to take less weight
I've got a Dell Insipron E1705, and about 2 days ago my Battery would charge fine with the AC Adapter plugged in.
I ran it without the Adapter plugged in yesterday, the battery got down to about 34%, and I shut it down. I got home and plugged in the AC Adapter to charge it, and it would say "Plugged in, Charging" but the battery has stayed at 34%. I shut my laptop down, and let the Battery charge while it was off. Today I turn my laptop on, and it is still at 34%, saying "Plugged in, charging." The Battery sign with the lightning bolt through it turns off for several minutes, then comes on for about a minute or so, and turns off again for several minutes, repeating that process.
After 6 months of moderate use, the battery on my 3810T seems to not want to fully charge. The battery indicator in windows (win 7 home premium 64bit), shows the max charge at 88% and the front led stays yellow for a long time when plugged in (over 12 hrs) before finally just turning off instead of going to blue to indicate a full charge.
my E1705 has trouble booting whenever its on the battery. At first I thought it may be a defective battery but I just bought a new one and it still does the same thing. It will power on but the monitor will not turn on. Everything is perfect if its plugged into the adapter and will start every time, just not on battery. It will take about 15-20 times of on and off with the power button, and THEN it will turn on with the battery. After I get it to boot a few times, it boots everytime on the battery, its very strange, it seems like it needs to "warm up" before it works ...
I was using my inspiron 1545 the other night and it was charging the battery, then i heard a pop from the left hand side of the keyboard. At this point i noticed that the battery icon no longer had the plug icon on top showing it was charging. I then looked at my power adapter and noticed the blue light was not on on the brick.
Finding this I unplugged the brick and then plugged it back in..POP from the laptop again....and the blue light on the brick went off again. This happens everytime.
So I am guessing there is something wrong in the laptop and the brick turns off maybe activating its short circuit mode protect. Obviously, this means I can not charge the battery.
If i remove the battery and try to run it on mains adapter it POPs as soon as you plug it in and the laptop won;t boot as it has no power...
I have a Dell xps M1530 laptop. A few months ago my battery started to go. I just purchased a new one from Dell and it worked good for a few days then for some some reason the laptop won't run when it is not plugged into the AC adapter. I have tried unplugging the AC and taking the battery out and holding down the start button for 30 seconds and that didn't do anything. On the tool bar the battery shows its 100% fully charged and the lights on the battery itself also says it's fully charged.
I have a dell xps m1710. the battery isnt working and vista shows it as no battery is detected. bios shows it not installed, my question is it safe to keep the bad battery in the computer and just use the ac adapter?
second question. my wifi led is blinking, is that normal?
Refurbished Laptop - latitude E6410. The battery light contrantly flashes on the Battery five or Six solid blue lights - Then three flashing lights.In addition, the Light on the Computer ( ) and the desk top icon for the power adaptor cord /battery says" Plugged in - Not charging".I ran the Dell Diagnostics (Fn key at bootup) but it found no problems.is the battery dead?
I don't know what happened, but my laptop's not working.
I was using my laptop as a desktop computer (no battery) when I accidentally switched the switch off. After switching it on, I tried to turn on my laptop and the first thing I noticed was the blank screen. Then the power turned off, and then turned on again. The fan is working, but nothing else is. I don't hear or notice any processing, so I'm pretty sure nothing's working right except for the fan and the lights indicating that it's on.
I tried to reset the laptop by disconnecting it from power and then turning it back on after 30 seconds - but no luck.
I have HP Pavilion g6-2288sx Notebook PC. It has core i3 processor with 4gb ram.
My problem is that my laptop suddenly powers off while running, not hibernating - total shutdown without any error or warning or anything. It just goes blank and dont turn on again until i connect it with its charger. Low battery is not the problem cause it doesnt give low battery error even battery sign shows that i have enough battery to work about next 30 mins.
I've run into this issue twice already... once on 1 computer and another on this same one. It's the one where the battery is not recognized and there is an "X" where the battery icon is.
I've done all the Software Updates, Batter Update 1.3, and tried resetting the PRAM. So far none of these have worked. Now I'm out of ideas. Before after going thru those steps, the problem would be fixed... not so this time.
I know they extended the warranty and were replacing the batteries for free, but not sure this one would be covered under that.
My Dell XPS 15z is showing the following problem :-- if I try to boot it with the battery connected (and AC power either plugged in or not), the orange power light flashes briefly and then the machine shuts down- if I remove the back of the case, disconnect the battery, connect the AC power cable and boot, the system boots as normal
- BIOS version is A07, I can not upgrade this to A12 as, when I try to with the battery disconnected it basically tells me I have to have a battery connected to do the upgrade- when I click on the battery status button on the side of the case with the battery connected, one LED lights- when I click on the battery status button on the side of the case with the battery disconnected, no LEDs light
What are the next diagnostic steps?What is the likely fault - could replacing the battery unit solve the problem or is is the component which charges the battery which is likely to be faulty?The laptop is 18 months old but only covered by a one year warranty with Dell.
Just got my first laptop, and my wife likes using it on battery in her favorite chair whereas I prefer to sit it on the coffee table plugged into the outlet. So we end up charging it up when I use it, and only draining it to between 90 and 50% or so when she uses it. Is this okay to do, should I fully drain it once a month or so, am I being too paranoid about taking care of it?
This might be a dumb question but, can I transport my Dell studio 1737 laptop without the battery in it? Is the tiny battery inside enough to keep everything okay (not sure what 'everything' is).
I based the size on specs from the Dell site plus answers to my questions from a tech support guy via chat. He told me that my new 9 cell battery would only stick out the back of the laptop by 1". I specifically asked him if it would stick out the bottom, he said no.
I was thinking of purchasing a Dell XPS 1530 for college. I have everything customized exactly the way I want it but I was wondering if the bluetooth option was absolutely necessary for college campuses? I really do not want bluetooth in my laptop if I do not have to get it as I hear bluetooth drains laptop battery power, but is it required by todays standards?
