I have a dell inspiron 1545 and my battery is not being detected. I tried uninstalling and re installing the ACPI drivers but it didn't work. This is really getting on my nerves I've bought two batteries trying to get this to work. Every computer I have ever bought from dell has given me problems. Suffice to say this problem is the straw that broke the camels back and I will never be buying another product from dell or conducting business with them in any form.
I have purchased the laptop 3 months ago and suddenly from yesterday I am getting no battery detected notification on the battery status icon. My battery is charging and dischaging also but still the notification is shown there. I cannot see the status of how much power is left or if the battery is fully charged or not.
I am using Inspiron 15 3000 Series i5 Laptop. After sometime the battery status comes back. So its like going and coming back type problem.
After cleaning the cooler and replacing new thermal grease on CPU and Video Card my laptop does'nt regognize the battery and some USB ports (I have also instaled the USB driver). What could be the problem?
ive been using a Dell Inspiron 15R 5521 for about 20 months now. Uptil a month back the laptop was working fine. Then it suddenly it has stopped detecting the battery. Once in a while it detects but then goes off again. I had taken it to a Dell store where they tried replacing the battery as the diagnostics showed a battery problem, but changing the battery also did not work. Is the problem related to Windows 8.1 upgrade?
I bought a new battery recently from Dell for my Inspiron 1501 laptop.The system does not recognise the battery.It is not charging.Charging indcator flashes amber 3 times then 1 time green. System working fine with AC adapter plugged in.Battery meter says no battery.Even key board and touch pad responding erratically.
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?
My Inspiron is running on the ac adaptor. The battery icon contains the plug symbol which should mean that it is being charged, but the capacity is indicated as 4% - 'Plugged in not charging'. The battery is new, so presumably the last one was not at the end of its life!
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] .....
I have a 2 year old Inspirion 1545. The battery and adapter simultaneously died on me, so I bought new ones and can't for the life of me get the adapter to behave. One day,it will work,then the next day,nothing. I keep getting an error code saying that I need a65w adapter ,which the new one is. I have updated the BIOS and have done all of the other troubleshooting that I can find.
I've been using a Dell inspiron 1545 from about 3 years now and exactly after 2 years of my buy, the battery failed and it started showing me to replace the battery and always notified me about contacting dell for a new battery.
I didn't take this of much concern so i just ignored the message and kept on using my battery with my adapter plugged in. After 4-5 months of such usage, My battery completely failed and doesn't even offer me even a minute of backup, when i remove the power socket. Then i realized the importance of a new battery and then bought a new battery from Dell.
Its the same battery with the same specs and also the same family type. After i removed my defected battery, I replaced my new bought Dell battery and realized that my battery is working fine. its charging well but at some time, it says "Plugged in, But not charging" Which is rare for any new battery, which is bought brand new.
This is how it looks now after i remove the AC adapter plug and when i depend on the battery backup. it is providing me a backup, but I see a yellow exclamatory mark beside it. Which I think should not be present. it also says "Low battery" when there's already 99% of battery left!
I've also followed some online steps
1) updated by BIOS to the latest 2) Followed some other steps like uninstalling the battery ACI in the device manager and etc...
I'm using a PA-12 family adapter, which is also a replaced one.
I have a dell xps m1710. the battery isnt working and vista shows it as no battery is detected. bios shows it not installed, my question is it safe to keep the bad battery in the computer and just use the ac adapter?
second question. my wifi led is blinking, is that normal?
I was using my inspiron 1545 the other night and it was charging the battery, then i heard a pop from the left hand side of the keyboard. At this point i noticed that the battery icon no longer had the plug icon on top showing it was charging. I then looked at my power adapter and noticed the blue light was not on on the brick.
Finding this I unplugged the brick and then plugged it back in..POP from the laptop again....and the blue light on the brick went off again. This happens everytime.
So I am guessing there is something wrong in the laptop and the brick turns off maybe activating its short circuit mode protect. Obviously, this means I can not charge the battery.
If i remove the battery and try to run it on mains adapter it POPs as soon as you plug it in and the laptop won;t boot as it has no power...
I bought my laptop Dell XPS M1330 in September 2009... I have not had problems with this until now. Three days ago I turned on my laptop in order to read a pdf file , but I noticed the my file went constantly down and therefore, I was not able to read it... It seemed like the "arrow pointed down key" was permanently pushed down! So I reboot my lap but I had the same problem. The next day, again, I turned on my lap and at that time the cursor was moving constantly to the left like the "arrow pointed left key" was pushed down!
I tried with Dell diagnostics and this showed me the next errors:
-ERROR CODE 3600:0853 PRIMARY_BATTERY_BAY The battery can not provide sufficient power. -ERROR CODE 2C00:0423 KEYBOARD-Stuck key detected
When I was testing the keys (of the keyboard) this showed me:
Expected: e048 Read: e050....Expected: (something) Read e050.... And so on
Should I have to replace my battery and my keyboard???
I bought a Lenovo G505s laptop 4-5 days ago, but I have a problem. When I start Windows, it says 'battery not detected'. I found a topic about this, and I can fix it, if do the 'battery out, AC adapter in, deleteing Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery from device manager, shutdown, AC adapter out, battery in, AC adapter in' method The real problem is, that I have to do this every single day I wake up. Maybe it's because I don't updated BIOS, or it's a software/hardware error?
Long story short, the battery likes to play games as to when it is or isn't detected. If I plug it in to the charger before booting it tends to recognize the battery, but frequently when simply turning on the G505s it'll just not detect the battery (I tried seeing if it was detected in the Lenovo Solution Center in addition to the battery meter; it wasn't). It runs on battery, but it's incredibly irritating to have no info as to how much of a charge is left.
I just got this laptop yesterday, and I upgraded the BIOS firmware, and am currently running Windows 8.1.
Received dv3t CTO couple of days ago from HP. I am not even done clean installing on the notebook, and when I opened the HP total care advisor today, it was showing battery condition as poor. I ran the battery check tool, and it shows battery color as Red, battery health indicator as "Replace" and a message that says "The battery check has detected a failure. The battery may be covered by your HP warranty." I contacted HP chat and rep said they are sending me a new battery. I dont install HP total care advisor after clean install ever, so in a way I am glad this software detected the battery problem before I clean installed the system and wiped out this software, and I got battery replacement. Makes me wonder if this software should be installed after clean install. If I want to install it after clean, where do I download it from?
I bought a new ProBook 4530s less than 2 weeks ago. It is running Windows 7 64 bit. I was using it today on battery power when it shut down unexpectedly. Apparently the battery was low. I was listening to music and did not hear any low battery warning. Certainly, there was no popup message. I plugged in the charger and restarted the computer. Now I see an icon on the bottom right of the screen that apparently means No Battery is Detected.
The yellow light on the left side of the laptop next to the power cord is flashing. I did some research online and tried removing and replacing the battery several times. No change. Originally, I was unable to start the computer from the battery at all. Now I find that I have enough power that I can start from the battery, so it must be getting some power in spite of the icon. I have now restarted several times, plugged in and on battery. I always get the No Battery message and the flashing yellow light.
I have looked at Device Manager, and it says that the battery is fine.
I own a HP Pavilion G series laptop and have windows 8.1 running on it. Windows just made me finish an update after which it is not detecing my battery anymore. At first, it said: "Plugged in but not charging". Hence, I shutdown the computer, removed the battery and plugged it back in. Now it just says: "No battery is detected".
I should mention that I am not using the original battery that came with the laptop. It is an extended battery which was working fine until the update.
Now, its switching the message between: "No battery is detected" and " Plugged in but not charging"
I have an Aspire M5-581T. In March of 2014, the battery suddenly stopped working. It would not charge, the unit would not boot from the battery, and if I unplugged the computer from the AC outlet it shut down completely.
My Laptop model is: Dell Inspiron 15R. It has Intel HD 4000 and AMD 7670M Graphic Card, but only Intel HD 4000 card is detected when I scan for configuration in URL... This means AMD graphic card will not be used during game play ? what should I do to make the AMD card will be detected when we scan for configuration.
I have an Inspiron 5520, with Win 7 Home premium 64 bit and an external Western Digital HDD My passport Essential SE (3.0). The laptop is fairly new, I purchased it last June. From first day it seemed that something was wrong with the connection with the hdd. In case I was even touching the cable of the hdd it was disconnecting for example, and since yesterday it doesn't detect it at all!
The light of the hdd goes on, and I can feel it working, but I get no beep sound on my computer, I dont see the drive on device manager, and in general its nowhere!
I tried the hdd in all four USB ports and nothing. The drive has no problem on other computers (with OS Vista and Win 7). My mouse works perfectly on all four usb ports.I updated the drivers for BIOS and chipset, I run pc check up. I checked both laptop and drive with antivirus and antispyware programs. I reinstalled the driver from WD website.
I have Dell Inspiron 15 series 7000 laptop and I wanted to perform "Dell Backup & Recovery" task. I have tried connecting My Passport 1 TB external HDD to get back backup. I get "USB Key not detected" message on all the USB ports that I have tried. I have changed the cord also but of no avail. But when connect my 4GB USB pen drive, I do get success. Why do my "My Passport" connections are not recognized?
