I tried to update my bios to A07 -> A11 (the lastest). But the update failed. Ok. I just close the updater. I open Google Chrome, surf on the Internet etc. After 10 min, I shut off my Dell computer normaly. Now when I turn my MiniPC on, it just doesn't do anything... My hard drive doesn't starts. The screen stays black...
I have had my Dell Inspiron 1525 for around two years. For the past month, when my power supply is plugged in, the battery does not charge. It has been stuck on 3% and will automatically shut down when unplugged.
I have seen that this is a very common problem, however, when hovering over the battery icon it says: plugged in, CHARGING, where as all of the other posts that I have seen say: plugged in, NOT charging.
I have tried taking the battery out and restarting but this did not work. I also drained my battery and tried to recharge but again, this did not work. My initial thought is that I may need a new battery but I just wanted to check first.
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....
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...
In mid November 2012 my laptop Inspiron Midi 1012 (with window 7 starter) suddenly stopped booting up.
I press the power button and I get the Dell Inspiron page & loading bar where I can also select F2 for set up & F12 for boot options or simply wait for boot up
Another page will appear (if I just wait at the Dell Inspiron logo page with loading bar) saying windows did not shut down succesfully. If this was due to the system not responding, or if the system was shut down.... & ask me to select booting option between safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode prompt or start windows normally.
I tried selecting every mode but to no notable result the only things that happens is that the Microsoft Corporation logo appears with a loading bar for 2-3 seconds then the screen will turn back and only my white arrow will be visible on the screen. At this time, no keys & short cut keys will work. The light of my computer is till on, I can still see some luminosity on the black screen. I can move the arrow around on my screen. The black screen won't change if I let it be for minutes or hours, no windows will pop up if I put a usb memory stick or plug my external cd/dvd player in the usb outlet.
I tried to use a usb transfer cable between my tower pc & my laptop Inspiron Mini but it doesn't work since windows doesn't boot on my laptop.
I tried F12 (boot option) when my computer start & selected diagnostic but there is no error detected (in short & long diagnostic, test memory, test system). I also tried the other booting options but to no avail (hard drive, network, ...).
Something is wrong with it. I am running it on windows 7. I did a [URL] .... system restore to like a year ago and it still won't connect. Not only does the wifi not work, the Ethernet cable wont work also. and it says im connected to a public network but with limited access. what should i do?
I have a problem in my inspiron mini 1012,it Hangs and wont pass BIOS loading.. i have tried to press f2 it can but it takes long time to pass and went in bios menu after any minutes its hangs again..and i tey to press f12 to use another boot option, but it can not pass...
I have a Inspiron Mini 1012. I created the restore factory image on a usb through the Dell DataSafe local backup program that it came with. Had no problem installing it. But when I turn on computer and boot into the usb I get an all black screen with the following. BTW the laptop has no problem starting up regularly no issues at all. Will be selling and want to wipe the drive.
WINDOWS BOOT MANAGER:
WINDOWS FAILED TO START. A RECENT HARDWARE OR SOFTWARE CHANGE MIGHT BE THE CAUSE.
I have spent two days reading forums & trying to follow suggestions. I have gotten a new battery (prior to finding out it might not be the problem), reconnected the power cord/adapter and did a bios update. Bios still says adapter is "unknown". Battery (new one) reads at 41% (& holding), the old one at 37%. Another way to charge the battery?
My year old XPS 13 Ultrabook's battery is not charging when plugged in. I measured the voltage of the power adaptor at the plug (the end that connects to the Ultrabook) and the voltage level seem fine at 19.4V
However when I plug and unplug the power when the Ultrabook is off, the LED turns on and off accordingly.
My Ultrabook is L321x, running Windows 7, and has BIOS A7 installed.
I just had a battery replacement for my Dell XPS 15z.. Prior to the installation of the new battery, the machine could only work with the AC adapter plugged in, raising the suspicion that the battery was defective. However, now that a new battery has been installed, the battery does not charge even whiles the AC adapter is stilled plugged in.
i have my computer (win 7) set to high performance. I also keep it plugged it but it hasnt been charging my battery, its down to 35%. Does it have some sort of a cycle function where it waits until the battery is drained and then charges it back up? I dont want it to do this because when i need to use it on the go i would like a full battery.
I've got an HP Compaq nw8240 and when I move the mouse over the battery icon it says Plugged In, Not Charging. It only shows a 40% charge too, and if I unplug the AC adapter the battery will drain and then recharge back to 40% again.
I'm running the latest version of Windows 7 also.
I've also tried updating the BIOS but when I download the file from HP's support site it and run it all it does is restart my computer and nothing changes.
My studio 1737 laptop always says its plugged in and not charging. I had the original battery in and on boot up the bios says that the battery is not recognized if I unplug the laptop with that battery in it automatically dies. I also purchased another battery online I get the same error on boot but this battery actually has a charge straight out of the box so the laptop will run if I unplug it. However, the battery will not charge. I also bought a new official dell charger since the after market one gives me an error on boot up. I have also replaced the CMOS battery because I was getting an error on that too and the clock kept resetting.
I currently have the new battery, new official dell charger, and a new CMOS battery installed and the battery still does not charge. What could be causing this?
There is a tiny chance that this slight variation will work. Remove the battery and power cord, and hold the power button down for sixty seconds. Without turning it back on, re-install the battery and power cord and turn it on. If this doesn't work, then it is either a battery failure or a charger failure.
