Laptop doesn't charge battery anymore

This question is not answered

Hello

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.
