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?

HP/Compaq :: Unresponsive Laptop- Won't Turn On, Even With The Battery Plugged Into The Wall

Dec 20, 2009

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.

Dell :: Seperate Power Modes For Battery And Plugged-in

Jan 4, 2010

I own an Inspiron 1545 and would like to set-up two profiles, one for use when on battery and one for use when plugged in. Basically,

I want my laptop to run at maximum performance/brighter screen when plugged into the wall and have it run in a power-saving mode when running off the battery.

The Windows7 power options don't seem to be able to differentiate between plugged-in and battery operation. Is there perhaps a program which I can install to do this or is it just not possible??

Dell :: Inspiron B130 Wireless Si Or No

Oct 13, 2007

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.

HP/Compaq :: Fan Won't Turn On When Laptop Is On Battery Power

Oct 19, 2009

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.

Sony :: Vaio Does Not Turn On Without Battery, Bad Power Supply

May 4, 2010

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?


Bad power supply and battery?

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] .....

Acer Switch 10 :: Won't Turn On Or Charge Battery After Changing Power Plan

Nov 20, 2014

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.

Dell :: Inspiron B130 Drivers/firmware For The DVD Drive And The Wifi Card

Dec 10, 2008

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.

Dell Inspiron 15 3521 :: Battery Failure - Laptop Plugged In All The Time

Nov 28, 2014

I have a Inspiron 15 (3521, Late 2012) and my battery has failed 7 days after the warranty was up-Murphy's Law.

I keep my laptop plugged in all the time  and therefore do not run it off the battery.

I don't see how the battery could fail, when I don't run (use it) the computer from it, especially after only 1 years usage?

Dell Inspiron 1521 :: Laptop Battery On Idle - Plugged In Not Charging

Mar 26, 2013

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

Dell Inspiron 11 3137 :: Installed New Battery Still Saying That Unit Is Plugged In Not Charging

Dell Inspiron 5537 :: Battery Icon Says Plugged In But Stopped Charging After Upgrade To 8.1 Pro

Oct 30, 2014

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:

Primary Battery Charge: 5% (now actually 4%); Primary Battery Health: 86%; Primary Battery Voltage: 11106 mV/11106mV/11106mv; Primary Battery Current Flow: 0mA/0 mA/ 0 mA; AC adapter:  65 watt adapter/na/na 

-On separate page, diagnostics continued:

Primary Battery : Charge Cycles=159; Temperature=26C, Voltage=1106mV; Current=0mA; Remaining Capacity=0.271Ah; FullCapacity=5.184Ah; BatteryHealth=86%; ManufactureDate=6/8/2013; Serial Number=b99

Charger: ChargerState=Installed.

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?

Dell Inspiron N5110 :: Won't Turn On - No Sign Of Power

Apr 3, 2013

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.
