  • Forum Thread: Dell Vostro A860 Won't Turn On

    I bought my Dell Vostro A860 in December of 2008 and it has had a very easy life. At least a year ago (maybe longer, I'm not sure) both the battery and the power adapter stopped working correctly. The battery wouldn't hold a charge and the adapter wouldn't charge anything (it is the same...

  • Forum Thread: Dell Vostro V131 Battery connection

    While I was working on my Dell Vostro V131 while charging it, the Dell Support Center Application suddenly warned me that the battery had produced a fatal error. I restarted the laptop, but the BIOS warned me that the battery needed replacing. The laptop wouldn't work without an adapter anymore....
  • Forum Reply: Re: blank screen when resuming from standby/hibernation forces me to reboot

    Just another bump, as I let my power cable slip out today and the computer went to sleep/hibernate self-destruct. I see there's no BIOS update or other explanation for this. There's unlikely to be. I can't phone Dell without cost, as my warranty is finished. Still, it won't stop...
  • Forum Reply: Re: Warning: Battery cannot be identified

    This answer is a bit similar to the above, maybe simpler. The solution worked on every Vostro laptop I used it on, from the 1500s to 1700s models. Plus, it was successful for original Dell batteries and replacement batteries. 1. Shutdown your Vostro laptop 2. Remove laptop battery and unplug the...

  • Forum Thread: How I fixed the whole host of problems with my Vostro 1500

    I literally punched and pounded on it until the dreaded blue screen appeared. Then I threw it across the room, went out and bought an Apple MacBook Pro. I highly recommend it. I haven't felt this good for a year and a half - the amount of time that I owned that piece of garbage that Dell passes off...
  • Forum Thread: RE Terry's Article 'Issues with charging notebooks. Is it the AC adapter, the battery or the system itself?'

    As a computer programmer I have thrashed a lot of laptops in my time. My first, aToshiba was so ugly but still works today - my Compact -- thrashed that 3 hard drives later it still goes. Then in 1998 got my HP Desktop that I thrash and a Dell Volvo 1510 for when I provide training and demo's - but...
  • Forum Thread: Vostro 3555 - Replaced DC Jack/VGA Board

    The original DC jack will allow the laptop to run with the AC adapter (genuine Dell), but the battery does not charge. There is also a crack in the plastic housing for the jack, and the round, plastic centerpiece that protects the pin is missing. I ordered a new part (PFYC8), but the laptop would not...
  • Forum Reply: Re: Dell Vostro 1520 battery problem.

    I have been servicing a Vostro 1520 with the battery issue back in April. A few things to follow to make the battery work with the Vostro 1520, but it will not resolve all issues entirely: 1) If you receive this message, update your BIOS to min A08. The machine I got in was A02. 2) More than likely...

    Can anyone tell me how long their 6 cell or 9 cell battery usually lasts. I have a Vostro 3500 , and only get 1.5hs with a 6 cell - pretty bad. I don't want a heavier 9 cell but may have to buy one. I'm not sure if this is because the laptop is low quality, the battery has gone, or if...
