Laptop battery not charging

By donking24 ·
I have a Dell M1530 and my battery is not charging. At first i thought it was the battery and I bought one and found myself with the same result. I'm thinking that the AC plug on the laptop may be the problem, anyone know where to order the AC plug and how involved that would be?

First, test the AC adaptor

by rlbullz In reply to Laptop battery not chargi ...

To test the AC adaptor, use a multimeter or improvise one. The objective is to verify whether the AC adaptor has an output.

The problem can also be internal to the laptop. The power supply may be busted.

After you've tested the AC adapter,

if it is still functioning, then it could be a loose connection on the plug to the
motherboard. If the adapter is not functioning, I've had pretty good results
from They sell a wide variety of OEM and replacement
parts, including adapters and batteries.

Thanks, it was the ac adapter on the mother board, it was not properly charging the battery. I was able to find a replacement on for under $20 and install it. Installation was kind of a pain because I had to take the laptop completely apart but it was worth it.

Hello donking24,

You should check the power supplys ac adapter, or there could be a malfunction in the port where you plug the charger in. You said you have bought a new battery and that was not the problem be sure it is not an internal issue.

Universal Ac Adapter

by Balance223 In reply to Laptop battery not chargi ...

Universal travel ac adapter allows one to charge up his/her gears. In different countries different types of converters are used. But the universal ones are made in such a way so that people can use it anywhere, despite of which country you are heading for (100V-250V-50/60Hz). This is probably the reason why the Universal Travel Adapters are so popular.

The beauty about buying a universal power adapter for your laptop is that when you decide to upgrade to a new laptop, you wont have to worry about having spare incompatible power supply's laying around. You will already have a replacement chord! If you wanted to, you could keep a chord in your car, and one at home. Having a universal power supply will cut down on the wear and tear of future laptops as well!
