I own a dell studio 1555 since less than two years now. Suddenly my laptop didn't charge the battery anymore. I tried to replace the battery, but still, no reaction. Although the laptop 'finds' a battery, it says that it is not possible to charge it... So I tried to use a new charger. Which didn't work either!
What can I do? I think the problem is something within the laptop?
As you can imagine, a laptop that needs to be plugged in all the time isn't really usefull!
Thanks in advance
Check the BIOS setup to make sure the AC adapter is properly recognized (F2 at powerup). If it's listed as unknown, the battery won't charge - in that case, try a new OEM Dell adapter. If that doesn't solve the problem, the mainboard needs repair or replacement.
