Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Not Working After Battery Change

Feb 27, 2013

I changed my battery from original to an aftermarket one as the original battery died. But after changing the battery the monitor flickers for few seconds and everything goes blank.

I put back my original battery, not working (Before it was working with Mains on)

I removed the battery, pressed the power button for 10 seconds and then I put back and connected mains. Again the display flickers and everything goes blank after few seconds.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: E Folder Is Almost Full - Change Drive Letter Not Working

Nov 20, 2014

My Recovery E: Folder is full -- 31.9MB free of 14.6GB - Windows Vista. I keep getting pop ups/messages saying that my E: folder is almost full, and occasionally that I should close my internet browser so I don't lose information. 

Some of them discussions said to go into the E: folder and delete files which should be there (can't access it the folder -- there's only a warning message) or to change the Drive Letter (get a message that says it cannot remove "the letter drive of your volume", and now I'm not sure what I should do next.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Battery Not Charging?

May 3, 2012

My Inspiron is running on the ac adaptor.  The battery icon contains the plug symbol which should mean that it is being charged, but the capacity is indicated as 4% - 'Plugged in not charging'. The battery is new, so presumably the last one was not at the end of its life!

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: No Battery Is Detected?

Apr 6, 2013

I have a dell inspiron 1545 and my battery is not being detected. I tried uninstalling and re installing the ACPI drivers but it didn't work. This is really getting on my nerves I've bought two batteries trying to get this to work. Every computer I have ever bought from dell has given me problems. Suffice to say this problem is the straw that broke the camels back and I will never be buying another product from dell or conducting business with them in any form.

Dell :: Inspiron 1545: 4 & 6 Cell Battery Differences?

Jul 23, 2009

Is there going to be much difference in terms of battery life between the 4 and 6 cell battery? I did read a review of the 1545 in which they referred to battery life as appalling - around 90 minutes.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Battery Plugged In But Not Charging

Mar 17, 2013

I had bought a new battery since my old one was dead. I charged it up and was using it for a couple days. After that, I got the "plugged in, not charging" message. I thought it was the battery, so I got a tested replacement battery. I still got the message, so I did that uninstall battery device manager solution, and didn't work. I also updated BIOS to A14, bought a new A/C adapter, and still no luck. The A/C adapters say "unknown" in BIOS though both A/C adapters are Dell. Here is a picture of the laptop jack. [URL] .....

Dell :: Inspiron 1545 Touchpad, Bluetooth And Blu-ray Not Working

Aug 12, 2009

Purolator dropped off the laptop today and I was quite excited. I tried the Bluray and it's definitely worth the extra money. However, some things are going wrong.

First, the damn touchpad sucks. I want Synaptics back. But at this point all I can do is BAWW about it, so whatever. But when I try to install the drivers, the cursor flips out every time I touch the pad at all. It goes all over the screen in random directions.

Second, my bluetooth doesn't seem to be working. I installed the drivers on Windows Vista and Windows 7, but neither of them yielded results. The drivers install without a problem and then tell me to enable Bluetooth using the radio button. The radio button is already enabled, as Wi-Fi is working, but there is still no Bluetooth option in the Control Panel or anywhere else for that matter.

Third, Bluray movies seem to not work with WMP. What's the problem? If it's not supported, what program do you guys suggest I use for Bluray movies?

Fourth, no matter what I do, Catalyst Control Center just won't install. The drivers are there, but CCC just won't work at all, let alone show up in my desktop context menu.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Battery Is Marked As IDLE In BIOS

Dec 5, 2012

A few days ago, on my Inspiron 1545, my power adapter stopped working.

I started using an identical Dell adapter (exact same model PA-3E) to supply power to the laptop, power was working fine, but the battery would not charge.  The battery is at 0%.

In BIOS the adapter is recognised as the correct 90W adapter  but the battery is marked as "IDLE".

I have run Dell diagnostics and that says the battery is healthy, how can that be if it wont charge.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Low Battery Message With 99% Charge Left

Sep 5, 2012

I've been using a Dell inspiron 1545 from about 3 years now and exactly after 2 years of my buy, the battery failed and it started showing me to replace the battery and always notified me about contacting dell for a new battery.

I didn't take this of much concern so i just ignored the message and kept on using my battery with my adapter plugged in. After 4-5 months of such usage, My battery completely failed and doesn't even offer me even a minute of backup, when i remove the power socket. Then i realized the importance of a new battery and then bought a new battery from Dell.

Its the same battery with the same specs and also the same family type. After i removed my defected battery, I replaced my new bought Dell battery and realized that my battery is working fine. its charging well but at some time, it says "Plugged in, But not charging" Which is rare for any new battery, which is bought brand new.

This is how it looks now after i remove the AC adapter plug and when i depend on the battery backup. it is providing me a backup, but I see a yellow exclamatory mark beside it. Which I think should not be present. it also says "Low battery" when there's already 99% of battery left!

I've also followed some online steps

1) updated by BIOS to the latest  
2) Followed some other steps like uninstalling the battery ACI in the device manager and etc...

I'm using a PA-12 family adapter, which is also a replaced one.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Touchpad Stopped Working For No Apparent Reason

The touchpad on my dell inspiron 1545 has stopped working for no apparent reason. The left and right buttons still work. An external mouse works and I was able to check my touchpad settings using it, the touchpad settings all appear to be in order and I verified it was enabled.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Start Up Repair Not Working - Click Finish To Exit

Apr 25, 2011

My computer was being used by my girlfriend to watch some show.  During her use, my computer "freaked up" and she had to manually shut it down.  Now whenever I turn on my computer, it goes to my normal log-in page but instead of my password boz coming up, a gray window comes up.  It reads:

"Start Up Repair. Windows cannot repair this computer automatically.If you have recently attached a device to this computer, such as a camera or portable music player, remove it and restart your computer.  If you continue to see this message, contact you system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance, Click Finish to exit and shut down your computer.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Battery Icon No Longer Had Plug Icon On Top Showing It Was Charging

Jan 24, 2013

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...

Dell Inspiron 1440 :: Touchpad Not Working Properly When Charging And Battery Indicator Flashing Red

Feb 11, 2013

I have a Dell Inspiron 1440 which I've been using since 2010. Recently I bought a new charger for my laptop as the old one got damaged and now when I'm charging the laptop the touch pad is not working properly. It is slow and sometimes I can't select items with the touch pad. So I changed the charger and when I checked in the shop the touch pad with new charger (the second one)  was working fine. But when I went home again the same problem with the touch pad when charging only. When I remove the charger it works fine. And I also tried with a friends charger (but another dell model) and it works fine.  And now my laptop battery indicator is blinking red three times. That also happens when charging only.

Acer :: Change CMOS Battery On Aspire One AOA 110?

Mar 3, 2015

I've been losing date and time recently.  I update files, then take them home on a USB flash drive and they appear to be older than what's at home. Turns out my date and time are maintaining.  I have to reset date and time when I boot up now.  Pretty sure I need to swap out the CMOS battery (maybe a CR2032?) how to find it once the case is opened?

Dell :: Upgrading Inspiron 1545

Mar 23, 2009

I ordered two basic Inspiron 1545's on March 16th. $479 each on the one day special.

Dell says it will arive on April 6th. Does Dell usually take this long to deliver?

Both have Dual Core Pentiums. Can they be upgraded to Core 2 Duo later? Are the CPU's soldered on the main board?

Ram is limited to four gigabytes, even though the laptop uses a 64-bit CPU. Is this something that might be fixed in a future BIOS upgrade?

Is there any way to upgrade the onboard graphics? I found an ExpressCard chasis that has PCI express slots, but it costs over $700. I could build a PC for less than that. Do I have any other options?

Dell :: Cheapified New Inspiron 1545

Dec 22, 2008

I just looked at the pictures and specs of the new Inspiron 1525 replacement, 1545, and I couldn't believe what I have read. No HDMI port, no firewire port, only 3 USB ports, no modem, no eSATA. Also, it is 15.6" 16:9 screen, which is fine, if they offer higher than 1366x768. It is more like the 13" Inspiron than the old 1525 to me. I think Dell is going to re-align Inspiron as a cheap line like the HP Presario line. Dell Studio will compete with HP Pavilion.

Dell :: Do All Inspiron 15 (1545) Have LED Screens?

Apr 20, 2009

My question is if the early 1545's came with LED's or CCFL's? I see all the 1545's now come with only LED screens.

I ask because on the 'Dell Outlet' it doesn't state if it's a LED screen or not. It just says: "15.6 WXGA Laptop Screen Display with TrueLife"
