Dell Inspiron B130 :: Plugged In With Battery But Power Will Not Turn On At All
Apr 8, 2013
Working on a dell Inspiron b130 laptop. The power is plugged in, and battery is in. The power will not turn on at all, no fan or CPU. The main power light comes on when button is pressed for a moment then goes off. The battery light flashes slowly. The power cord adapter has a light on it and that says its working. I have tried taking the battery out and that does nothing.
I had assumed since its an older laptop that maybe the power was so drained that it needed it to be charged a little to have enough power to turn on. But it's been awhile an nothing yet. Is it trashed? We do have another hard drive around to try would that matter at all?
My mother was having some trouble with her laptop, and I was wondering if you guys had an idea of what the problem could be. Basically, it won't turn on, even with the battery plugged into the wall. It is completely unresponsive. The last time she used it was last night, and she said that when she was done, she left it on with the screen down and the battery plugged in.
I have tried turning off computer and letting batteries charge, tried turning of and holding power button, this model has internal batteries, I don't want to open laptop and try disconnecting batteries.
I have an inspiron n4010. I replaced the battery and it worked for a couple of weeks. But now, it won't turn on or stay on if it's not plugged in. And I can't have it plugged in all the time. It says that it's plugged in but not charging.
My battery on my acer draws power at times when my laptop is plugged in it will work ok then the on and off button will start to blink It will go into hibernation when plugged in when the battery gets to low....
Battery and screen questions,' 1 when not using the laptop should I leave it plugged in? 2 when playing music w the windows media player that came installed on the laptop how do I turn off the screen. I have set the screen to turn off ib 3 min but it does not turn off
I purchased a "slighty used" Dell Inspiron B130 2006 model laptop, which runs with windownsXP. Before I bought it, the guy told me it was "wireless" already and that I could go to any place like "starbucks" etc. and use the internet. Well, we met up at a local place that I knew would have wirless there, and once he arrived, he said that the wirless works, I just needed to go out and buy a card to go into it. Well this upset me bc as I understood it, I didnt need anything else(this is obveously my first laptop, which I paid $320 for). I have even tried hooking it up to my at home cable internet, and it doesnt work. On the laptop it says the Network Adapter is Broadcom and gives a location of PCI bus2, device 3, function 0. Ive tried playing with the network connections, and still dont know what I need for it. My friend came over with her laptop, and a whole bunch of my neighbors have wirless routers, bc her laptop worked everywhere in my house(she has wireless). I went to Target and bought a Lynksys Wireless G notebook adapter(bc it says it interoperates with wireless-B networks). Well I went through the software, and when it said to put the card in, I took the Dell plastic piece out and tried to put in the lynksys card...wouldnt fit. I took a flashlight and saw that the shape of my cardslot is like an "L". I went on the internet and found that I would need some sort of expresscard54 or 34, bc dell made this differant than other notebooks.
All in all, this Lynksys one wont work, Ive tried calling Best Buy and they put me on hold for like 30min.s then hung up on me, called dell, gave them the system code and they told me the laptop isnt under warranty anymore and they couldnt give me any info as to where it was bought or anything. Bottom line, I need to know how much more it will cost me to get this supposedly "wireless already" laptop to actually work.
I have a HP Compaq 2230S business laptop, but this question could be put to any HP laptop. The fan is constantly running when the laptop is plugged into the power outlet, but as soon as I pull the plug to run on battery power the fan powers down and stops. I re-plug the laptop back in and the fan kicks up again.
This is not good as I almost burned myself when I picked up the laptop after an hour sitting on the table on battery power. The hard drive is right beside the processor, so the laptop gets really hot.
Vista x64 Ultimate is what I'm using at the moment and my power scheme calls for 1% minimum and 100% maximum CPU on battery power.
I have a 12'' sony vaio with a 16V power adapter. My battery is not good anymore, it was not even holding for 20Min, but my problem now is that the computer does not turn on without the battery at all. I have to leave it charging for hours, then it will go on, but in the middle of the windows loading process it shuts down and does not show any signs of life until you leave it charging for another hour.The voltage output out of the power supply shows 14.70 ~ 15.20 never gets to 16V. Now, comes the questions...
This particular laptop needs a good battery to " buffer" power and the AC adapter only charges the battery but does not have enough Amps to run the computer without the battery?
Do i have a Bad power adapter that is not even charging the battery properly?
how to fix dell inspiron 15r battery plugged in not charging problem? i bought the laptop from dell in november last year and the charger that came with the product got wet and stop working i went to a computer store here and bought a 65w charger and after about a month using it start saying that its not the same exact charger that came with the laptop but its an original dell 65w charger it even say i should get a 65w or higher and it still dont work it works when it feels like
My battery light is flashing red and the battery icon says that my charger is plugged in but not charging. So when I unplug my laptop it automatically dies. It's been like this for a couple of days and i've tried to just see if it'll go away but nothings happening.
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] .....
About 1 Year ago i Bought a new DELL 5521 it was working fine, but like 2 days ago i was playing games in battery mod, it suddenly pop low battery 6% or maybe 10% so i force shutted down, and like not its charging up-to 60% or 65% and after this it says Plugged in not charging... i don't know why its not going above 65% percent. I Tried SEVERAL THINGS PEOPLE SAID, in Google in Forums Nothing Worked & it Also Sometimes Plug and Unplug By it Self Like for 2 Seconds it Unplug it Self, and then plug again and i dont know why....
The computer is in dead state the next morning after I switched its Windows power plan to high performance. In order to unlock power plan options, I disabled connected standby via a registry key in HKLMSystemControlSet001ControlPowerCsEnabled to 0.
After investigating, I read that this computer doesn't support normal hibernate wake-up process other than connected standby. I select shut down option in the menu (hibernate option disappeared). It's possible that shut down option in the menu was actually set to sleep/hibernate in power settings by default.
The battery was at 100% before I last turned it off.
The LED power indicator doesn't light on when power supply is connected on either DC or microUsb.
Just opened my girlfriend's laptop, and saw that it had:
CD/DVD Drive TSL462 ver. C
PC2 4200S 4-4-4-12 latency RAM 1 512 MB stick
Dell P/N 0C9063 WiFi Card
I was wondering if someone could give me a link to updated drivers/firmware for the DVD drive and the Wifi Card. I already updated the Intel Chipset from the Intel website.
Also, what is the best kind of RAM it will accept? I was thinking two 1GB sticks of pc2-5300, but I don't know if it'll accept that much? It is Dual channel memory, but it's only using one channel right now obviously. Any help is appreciated, as I need to get her computer in working order by Friday.
tell me which battery is supposed to be use for dell inspiron 15R n5010-4346 laptop. tell me the model number of battery because i am getting a message when laptop starts." the model number for primary battery could not be determined. this will prevent any battery present from charging. please insert a dell battery for best system operation". i want to check is it the right battery inserted in this laptop?
When I start up my laptop, it makes a beeping sound then tells me something along the lines of,"AC power adapter wattage and type cannot be determined."And when I press F2, it tells me that my battery is operational but it is on idle but the lights on the battery do not glow.When I get it started up, on the actual home screen with icons and everything, if I hover above the battery icon it tells me, "Plugged in, not charging."
My AC power adapter has a small led light on it, and it is green. Before this, my laptop used to get very very hot, to the point that I could not even put it on my lap for too long. I would also sometimes put it on my bed where there is fabric. Also, there is a break on the AC adapter at the very top near where it gets plugged in. I also ran a diagnostic test and it gave me back a code, 2000-0142 .....
Also, my laptop is significantly slower and I am using an Inspiron 1521
I have a unit that we have installed a new battery and it still says plugged in not charging. BIOS is not updated to current version, cannot update BIOS as battery is not over "10%". When unit boots, it will not post past splash screen when ACAD plugged in. Model number is Inspiron 11 (3137) and is currently running Windows 8.1.
Purchased an upgrade for my Windows license from 8.1 to 8.1 Pro on Sunday in the US (I had done the update to 8.1 from Win 8.0 months ago without issue). Since that time, my Inspiron 15R (5537, Mid 2013, non-touch screen) has stopped charging...although the battery icon says 'plugged in, charging'. I am using the OEM charger and battery initially purchased with the laptop. Currently in Canada (just in case that makes some crazy software difference...plugs/power is the same I think).
I've taken the following steps:
1. I tried battery diagnostics on Dell site. Said the battery is fine. 2. Ran full diagnostics at boot on startup. Those say in Current/High/Low columns:
3. Checked and rechecked physical connections, took battery in/out and used alternate plugs (although usual light ring glowing around plug to computer and icon says charging, took it out and replugged into computer, wall, and at the brick, tried various plugs at the hotel and at the office).
4. From Device Manager, uninstalled and reinstalled Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery.
5. From Power Options, selected alternate power plans and changed plan settings/restored default settings for the plan.
6. Went to Dell's drivers & downloads. Downloaded suggested updates to Intel drivers and BIOS. Installed Intel drivers.
7. Because power level was under 10%, couldn't install the BIOS update normally. So I downloaded a program to make a bootable USB drive, made the boot USB, transferred the BIOS update to it, restarted the computer, enabled legacy boot settings to get it to boot to the USB, and flashed the bios out of a DOS prompt with the /forceit command.
8. Since none of this worked, reran diagnostics (same results, slightly different voltage than the earlier office test, and diagnostic showed the drain when I momentarily pulled the AC cable out of the computer).
9. Took battery out entirely and restarted computer. Went back to Device Manager, uninstalled Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery and Microsoft AC Adapter, shut down computer, pulled out adapter. Reinstalled battery, replugged AC adapter, restarted computer and both programs reinstalled.
10. Downloaded, installed and ran iOlo system check software and followed recommendations for other fixes although it found no issues with battery.
None of this has worked. I've now got a battery at 4% with the icon still showing 'plugged in, charging'. I don't have an alternate Dell battery and charger to try in the system (hotel doesn't have one, I may try to run to a local electronics store tonight after work to see if I can borrow one). While this could be a hardware issue, with the timing (issue arose after upgrade, no issues previously) and the battery passing its diagnostics I'm guessing software...maybe...
My laptop, an Inspiron 15R, will not turn on. When I press power button, it beeps 3 times. Owner manuel says 3 beep codes mean possible system board failure - chipset error. As luck would have it my warranty went out in December. Does this mean the hard drive on my computer has crashed?
I woke up this morning and tried to turn en my laptop but nothing happened, I checked the AC adapter and it was working well, same as the batery, since I was using it last night with no problems. After a bit of research I managed to do an electrostatic discharge unplugging everything attached to my laptop, removing the AC adapter and the battery, and pressing the power button for about a minute, past that minute I plugged the AC adapter and pressed the power button, it turned on for about a second, it was pretty much a blink. Then everything was the same. I tried discharging again, several times, without success.
