Dell :: New Vostro Models- 1014 & 1088 (both 14.0") And 1015 (15.6")

Aug 14, 2009

Dell has announced three upcoming Vostro models- two 14.0" (1014, 1088) and a 15.6" (1015). The only difference I can see between the 1014 and 1088 is the 1088's ATI HD 4330 dedicated graphics card. All three look very similar and have 16:9 aspect ratio displays (1366x768)....

I wonder if the 1320 and 1520 will continue alongside these new models?

Dell Inspiron N5050 :: Disable Battery Charge Feature

Oct 20, 2014

I have russian system (Windows 7 SP1 with all updates on Inspiron N5050) and corresponding Dell software (on russian), but I'll try to describe options, like they be on english. You should to determine appropriate, corresponding to english analogues.

In the battery settings there is one checkbox, like "disable battery charge", with description, pointing to battery charge disabling until next Windows boot. So, if I check that checkbox, then...

Which EXACTLY system event(s) or situation(s) (the most comprehensive list) triggers the charger back to charge the battery, because "next Windows boot" is too unclear. For example, what about hibernate mode? Precisely, returning from it is not the Windows boot! In which moment of boot that trigger changes? Which system event(s) (application and/or hardware) generates initial command for it, what chain of devices and software calls involved (and can or can't be involved in different situations), how much time approximately consumes each chain link, and mention all affecting hardware settings and Windows settings.

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.

Dell :: Inspiron 9400 Generic Adapter Won't Charge Battery

Apr 23, 2009

I have had this laptop for 2 years and after the first year I had to replace both battery and adapter.

The first generic adapter I got was fine until the cable split (my fault as I was wrapping the cord around the brick).

I got the second generic from the same place I got the first.
I bought the new one last month and since then I have sporadically received a message that the adapter wasn't OEM and that it wouldn't charge the battery.
It would get back to charging after a reboot or stand by.

Now I have tried everything but it won't get back to charging the battery.
I did a search here and found others with the same problem (different dell laptops) solving the issue by flashing the bios.

Can anybody point me to the correct file I should download for my laptop as well as explain what should be done to flash the bios

Dell :: Vostro 1500 Does Not Charge

Jul 12, 2009

I opened my laptop to clean it using the manual on Dell website and when I got it back together it doesn't want to charge. When I plug it in the light on the charger goes off and a squeaky sound can be heard from the charger.

My friend has Vostro 1510 and mine and his chargers work with his laptop, but not with mine. So anytime I plug his or mine chargers the light on it just goes off and then it has to be unplugged and plugged again in the socket to restart it.

I believe there is some sort of protection in the charger, other than the fuse. Without the battery the laptop does not work

Dell :: Vostro A860 Doesn't Charge Past 82%

Apr 21, 2009

I've had my laptop for only 2 weeks (I bought it brand new), and I've never had this problem before. Starting today, my battery wouldn't charge past 82%. It charges fine until it reaches 82%.

Then, it just suddenly stops charging. After looking at an advanced battery monitor, I saw that the charge rate after hitting 82% was 0 mW (no charge...). Is this a battery monitor calibration problem? Or a battery problem? I've only had my laptop for 2 weeks...

Dell Inspiron 1501 :: Disable (AC Power Adapter Type Cannot Be Determined) Message

Mar 18, 2013

So my power cord or battery is garfunkled and it doesn't hold a charge. I use my laptop (Dell Inspiron 1501) with the cable plugged in all the time. I'm perfectly happy with this and there is absolutely no way I'm paying any more for any charging equipment (battery or otherwise) when I can get a faster laptop for cheaper than the cost of the charging equipment. So I'm not going to spend any more money and I'm perfectly happy with how the laptop works.

I don't need a solution but when the laptop boots it stops at this error message (in the BIOS or DOS or w/e before the OS loads) until it gets some user input okaying it to continue booting.

I want to disable the message to allow the computer to boot into the OS when it is turned on. I either want the message to time out or not to appear at all. I looked in the BIOS (which is the simplest BIOS I've ever seen and has practically no options outside of boot protocol) and didn't see any options related to error messages or to act in any way.

Dell Vostro 1000 :: Windows 7 Not Detecting Battery Charge Properly?

Oct 19, 2010

I have a question regarding my Dell Vostro 1000's battery.

To start off, I did the recharge and discharge method and after that, when I disconnected the AC-Power, it only shows the "Total Battery Charge 100%" but the primary, it doesn't say anything. Plus, when it was unplugged, it stays at 100%. Few minutes later, it will drop to 7% and the Battery LED will flash orange to tell me that the battery is low.

And my Battery health is good, but why is Windows 7 not detecting the battery charge properly??

Snap-shot: [URL] ....

And there is no calibration tool in the BIOS?

Dell :: Will A Generic Adapter Work On Vostro 1500

May 23, 2010

My Dell Vostro 1500 is not charging while plugged in. I get the following error message- The AC power adapter type cannot be determined.

Your system will operate slower and the battery will not charge. Please connect a Dell 90W AC adapter or higher for best system operation.

I have the Dell 90W adapter. On googling this problem I found out that the problem is with a circuit in the adapter that breaks and the adapter doesn't recognize

it as an original Dell. the only solution seems to be to replace the adapter. However I don't want to spend $70+ if its going to happen again in a few months. So I am thinking of buying a generic one on eBay

Dell :: Vostro 1500 Seems To "always" Charge Battery (99%)

Apr 8, 2010

Here's the scoop...

I have a Dell Vostro 1500 that I use for work, it's about 1.5 years old and the battery just died a week ago. The computer wouldn't recognize the battery, the battery had no charge, battery light flashing, etc... I thought this was weird, but whatever...

I got a new battery, and it seems to work fine, I can run with or without being plugged in, although about 90% of the time I am plugged. Here's the weird thing, no matter how long I leave the computer plugged in it always says chgarging on the little taskbar with 99% charged... I don't think this is normal? I wonder if this is why the last battery died so soon?

Any sugestions? I have the latest bios...

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: E440 Screen Flickering When Plugging In / Out AC Power

Jul 5, 2014

My Lenovo E440 screen flickers when I plug or unplug the AC power charger. I think this happened after I installed all the drivers. This doesn't occuer when the windows was still 'fresh-installed'.
I read on other thread that this also happened on other machines and I think the cause is the same, the refresh rate change from 60Hz to 50Hz when I plug the AC power and then it goes back to 60Hz when I unplug the AC power. So I plug the AC power then change both refresh rate to 60Hz. It went fine when I unplug the charger, but when I plug the charger again the refresh rate for while plugged in change to 50Hz again no matter how I try (so it flickers again when I plug the charger again).

Also, I am using Windows 8.1 Enterprise Evaluation and I've installed the latest Windows Updates, Lenovo System Updates, and Nvidia driver update.
My question is:
1. Is this software error or what? If it is software error then shouldn't this occur on all user?
2. What is the difference between the display refresh rate? Which one should I use (I though higher refresh rate is better)? Why does the refresh rate change when I plug/unplug the charger? If I remember correctly AC power source is 50Hz, does it related to this problem?

Dell :: 1520 Cant Charge And Cannot Hold A Charge

May 21, 2010

So I have a 3 year old Dell Inspiron 1520, the battery recently went dead. Cant charge and cannot hold a charge. Runs fine with the ac adaptor plugged in without moving it.

However I can not play games on it that I have been able to play before. Is this because I am running solely on the ac adaptor?
