Dell :: Precision M90Doesn't Recognize Battery?

Oct 5, 2009

I'm working on a Precision M90 for a friend. I've reinstalled the OS and all drivers from the Dell website.

The problem I'm having is that even before reinstalling everything, the computer is not recognizing the battery.

I've tried searching and came up with nothing. It doesn't show up in the BIOS or anywhere else. None of the lights on the battery are showing up either.

The indicator on the laptop shows that it's in trickle charge mode, but this is clearly not happening. When I unplug the AC Adapter, it dies within a couple minutes.

The computer will run without the battery installed on AC power only. I tried to flash the BIOS, but of course I can't because the computer cannot recognize the battery.

Dell Precision M3800 :: BIOS Does Not Recognize Samsung MSata

Apr 6, 2014

I'm trying to install an extra Samsung 840 evo mSata in my new m3800 but the BIOS does not recognize the disc. I tried 2 840 msata both with same result not recognized. 

Changed several settings in BIOS:

- disabled Intel Smart Technology- SATA operations to AHCI- Secure boot disabled- load legacy option enabled

Does the Samsung mSata is supported in an m3800?

Dell :: 6400 Doesn't Recognize New Battery

Dec 19, 2008

So my laptop has been taking a crap lately. First the power supply broke and had to get a new one and now the battery is down to 30-40 minutes. I bought a 9 cell battery off ebay and just got it in. I plugged it in and the laptop says "Battery not recognized, will not charge." Whats up with it? Is there a way to get it charging? I don't have the money to buy the $200 battery from Dell.

Dell XPS 12 :: Does Not Recognize Adapter - Battery With No Charge

Jan 29, 2015

I have an xps12 that doesn't recognise its adaptor, runs fine on AC but batter is now totally dead. I tried a different Dell 45W adaptor (borrowed) and it charged the battery, I then bought a cheaper 3rd part adaptor - which also worked for a week or so.

Now am back to unrecognised adaptor, no charging. BIOS is version AO8 but even if there is an update I can't install since my battery is on zero. Battery utility (Fn F3) indicates my battery is healthy and performing normally, but charging is disabled and I don't see any obvious way to enable it.

Dell XPS 15z :: Doesn't Recognize AC Adapter And Won't Charge Battery At 7%

Jul 22, 2013

I have a had Dell XPS 15z for a around a year and a half and it very suddenly stopped charging whilst plugged in. I didn't notice until the low battery warning came on that the computer had stopped recognizing the battery or the charger. I rebooted and went on BIOS, I don't know much, but I noted that it didn't see an adapter plugged in and it said that the battery is functioning normally. I've plugged the adapter into other laptops and it worked so it isn't the adapter.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv2125nr Will Not Recognize Or Charge Battery

Apr 29, 2010

I recently was given an HP dv2125nr laptop that needed a new motherboard. I purchased a new one and replaced it and the laptop was up and running. I was happy and figured that I had just salvaged a decent laptop.

When I first turned it on I noticed it wouldn't run off battery power but thought, no big deal it just needs charged. That turned out to not be the case. I went about reinstalling the operating system using the recovery partition and didn't give much thought to running it on battery til I noticed that the power icon said "On AC Power, Charging" It didn't give me a percentage however, and when I double clicked to inpect further I noticed that the battery icon under battery #1 had an X through it, and it also said "Total Battery Power remaining: Unknown".

At this point I updated the BIOS because I had seen a few forum topics that suggested this, I also made sure I had the most up to date drivers off HP's site for all hardware. Another step I took was to uninstall the "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" then scan for hardware changes and let Windows reinstall it. None of this worked.

I then assumed I had a bad battery on my hands, I ordered another one (not an HP, a cheaper one) and when it came I plugged it in overnight to charge and after about 12 hours turned the laptop back on to see if I had a fully charged battery, I did not!

It was acting in exactly the same way the original battery had acted. The only difference that I could notice was, that on one of my many reboots the icon under battery #1 in the Power Meter window only had a single red slash through it, instead of a red X.

Things I have tried:

1. Updated BIOS
2. Updated all drivers
3. Fresh install of Windows XP (again after the original recovery install)
4. Unistalling the "ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" in Device Manager.
5. Ran HP Battery Check Utility, has a divide by zero exception upon startup, then says no battery is present.
6. Booting directly to BIOS and allowing it a chance to charge overnight.
7. Swapping both batteries (no difference).
8. Taking back apart casing to make sure there were no loose wires.

My only thought next would be that either both batteries are bad (seems unlikely) or that there is a problem with the new motherboard. The motherboard being bad would surprise me, as it is able to run just fine without using battery power.

Acer :: Aspire M5-481T-6488 - Does Not Recognize AC Is Plugged In / Battery Not Charging

Nov 15, 2014

Aspire M5-481T-6488 - Does not recognize AC is plugged in. Does not charge battery.
 
Laptop is about 2 yrs old.  Running on the origninal Windows 8 that came with it.  Had the same issue when it was first bought.  Sent it in to Acer.  Came back with no report/ details.  Worked okay. Until recently.
 
Noticed that orange light comes on when it feels like charging and stops charging at 35%.  Charging is a hit and miss thing, mostly miss.
 
Tried:

Sticking a pin in the "battery reset" hole on the back

Uninstalling the "Microsoft API" battery

Removing battery to see if it'll work without it (it has an internal battery)

Dell :: Battery For Precision 4300

May 27, 2010

Battery is completely dead, no charge, have to keep it plugged in to stay on. I bought a battery at batteries plus because I needed one asap, well for some reason that battery made my monitor die when it was in.

Once I took the battery out monitor was normal. I don't really want to buy off dell as I'm not looking to spend that kind of money for a battery. Just looking for a battery similar to the one Dell provided,

if anyone knows where I could possibly find like similar to that. 11.1 Vdc, 85Wh, 9 cell Li-ion battery,

I keep seeing one's that 'work' for Precision 4300 but are $30-$40 which I seem kind of skeptical of. Just needing input on what to look for and where from one's around here who know a little more about this than I.

Dell :: 15R Don't Recognize Galaxy Y

Mar 2, 2013

I am with the following problem.My notebook dell inspiron 15r, win7, 64-bit does not recognize the connection via USB from my Samsung Galaxy Y GT S5360.On other computers I tested, usually win7 and winXP, 32bit usb connection to the phone works normally, using the same phone and the same cable. However on my dell laptop not working and not in another dell notebook like mine who also got in both the connection does not work.What I did and did not work:I used the program from Samsung KIES update drivers to try and gain access to the phone.I downloaded the drivers and installed samsung separated, but also without success.I uninstalled all USB drivers and let windows install them again. When I connected my phone, the driver was updated to UNKNOW DEVICE DRIVER, or upgraded to unknown device and continued not working.Already have activated / deactivated by phone usb debugging.It is seen that the problem is with my dell notebook for notes in other pcs and works normal, probably with drivers, however I can not install them and not find them available for download.

Dell :: 1535 Won't Recognize Blu-ray Disk

Dec 29, 2008

I did some searching, but couldn't find anything directly related to this problem.
Basically -- salesmen sold me on the the "this dell has a blu-ray in it", and i'd recently upgraded to an HDMI setup for my home theater, so i though -- why the hell not.
I've never had blu-ray before, so i only have one disk - Wall-E -, and well, it won't play.
As far as i can tell -- my dell has no idea that i've just fed it a blu-ray.
What' the deuce? Does this peice of need to go back?

Dell Latitude D610 :: Can Recognize More Than 2GB RAM?

Sep 17, 2009

We are having to make do and defer hardware purchases.  We have tried to add RAM to a Latitude D610 to improve user performance.  There is a 2GB stick plus a 512K stick.   It seems that A06 (10/12/2005) is the most recent BIOS version.  BIOS only recognizes 2GB. Windows recognizes 2.5GB, but states can only use 2GB.

Is there anything that can be done so that it could recognize the 2.5GB or even 4GB ( 2 x 2GB), within the 32 bit windows limitations of course?

Dell Inspiron 15 :: Drive Will Not Recognize Blank CD Or DVD

It will read both types of disc with data on them, but is totally unaware of blank media.

If I check the properties of the drive it shows the disc is full, even if it has already informed me of no disc inserted although there is one there..

Dell :: XPS M1530 Motherboard Does Not Recognize The Hard Disk

Jan 24, 2010

My motherboard on a Dell XPS M1530 (configuration below) does not recognize the hard disk.

I checked the hard drive and it is working well so I concluded it is the motherboard. I need advise on how much a new motherboard would cost, which motherboard I need, and whether it is worth going through a repair/replacement.

I gave the laptop (it is out of warranty, but with the cause being water damage the warranty would most probably be void anyway) to a repair shop and they want $349 to attempt a repair or $149 to replace it with a new one (this does not include the cost of a new motherboard).

I was looking for one on ebay, however I am not sure if it will be compatible with my configuration.

I would appreciate if anyone who had the same problem or experience with a similar issue can provide any input. Here is the configuration: ...

Dell Inspiron 3737 :: Won't Recognize 2nd Hard Drive

Dec 31, 2014

I just bought an SSD for my Insiron 3737 along with a caddy so I can replace the CD-RW with a 2nd hard drive. The laptop came by default with a WD 1TB hard drive which I removed and replaced with the new Intel SSD, the WD drive took the place of the CD-RW. 

At first I had trouble booting when the WD drive was connected since that one had Windows installed on it as well. After formatting the WD drive I can now boot but a new problem occurs. Windows sees the WD drive a healthy, ready to use drive for a few seconds or minutes after booting and then the hard drive simply vanishes from Disk Management.

I checked the caddy even took it back to where I bought it from so they can check if it's faulty but it seems that's not the problem.

why the WD drive isn't recognized?

Dell Latitude E6510 :: Will Not Recognize Memory Upgrade To 8GB (2 X 4GB)

Oct 21, 2014

I keep running into a problem with windows not loading after installing new RAM. I am currently using the original 4GB (2 x 2GB) it came with and I am wanting to go with 8GB (2 x 4GB). I am using the recommended Crucial RAM and I have checked the BIOS which recognizes the new memory. The BIOS is up to date running A16 version. I have not been able to find any settings that would be inhibiting it from running. I have noticed that the currently installed RAM runs a 1067mhz even though it is rated at 1333mhz. As far as I can tell there is no memory remapping feature for the BIOS which does not make sense.

Here is a snap shot of what I have:

Dell Inspiron 7537 :: Does Not Recognize Built In Touchpad

Jan 12, 2015

My Dell Inspiron 15 (7537) simply does not recognize the built in touchpad for a couple of days now.

I did run all the tests even the ePSA test and all passed with OK, but never the less there are not tests for the touchpad.

If I unplug the external mouse the mouse pointer dissapears, as a sign that there is no device present.(I tried to install and reinstall the synaptics drivers - Input_Driver_15K08_WN_17.0.13.51_A02 ) but no luck at all.

Furthermore, I tried to boot the system using the windows 7 and 8 installation media, as well as Linux Mint, but there is no mouse pointer unless I plug in  an external mouse.

It seams to me that the hardware is faulty.

I still have 1 more month left from the standard warranty, what should I do ?

Dell Inspiron 17R :: Laptop Does Not Recognize When It Is Unplugged From Power

Oct 29, 2014

my Inspiron 17R no longer recognizes when it is unplugged from the AC adapter. This means that when you check the power icon it always claims to be connected, even if it's not, and that the charge meter basically can't be trusted (it'll say it's fully charged when it's not). It also means that it fails to adhere to its power plans because it never goes into battery-only mode. I have contacted my local Dell tech support, but after checking my bios and seeing that my computer recognizes the AC adapter, they didn't know what to do. how to get my laptop to properly recognize when it is and isn't plugged into the power supply?

Dell Inspiron 1721 :: Will Not Recognize Hard Drive - Cannot Reinstall Vista

Apr 13, 2013

I have replaced the hard drives with new blank ones, but I cannot now reinstall Vista from the Reinstallation DVD because no drives are seen.

I have updated the BIOS to the latest available version, but still no joy.

I have taken out the drives and, using an external HDD port, can access them from another PC, so I'm certain there's no issues with the drives themselves.

I've tried Paragon 2010 Suite, but even that cannot "see" the drives, so I'm deducing that it's an issue peculiar to this Dell model.
