Default Dell Inspiron 1501 Battery problem

Hello,

My computer is Dell Inspiron 1501.


I have problem with battery. My battery has three different pieces which are necessary to work properly as battery and charge the computer.

In computer shows that battery is not charging properly and it stays at 3% power and never raise up. If I take off the battery, computer shuts down in 2 seconds. After that, in one screen (but not in monitor), where shows if computer is charging, lights up and now it shows it is charging. After 1 minute it stops and still stays at 3% power.



Who didn't understand..:

Computer Power (current): 3%. Baterry is plugged.


If:

Battery is removed from computer charging, then: computer shuts down immediately.

If computer shuts down immediately:

then it won't start till I plug battery into computer again.


If:

Battery is plugged into computer after shutting down, then: charging a computer for a while and then stops (at 3%).
---
If:

Computer status while "charging" and computer is working: button (which shows when battery is charging the computer) does not light up.

Computer status while "charging" and computer is shutted down: button lit up for 1 minute.


Main question:

Who is fault: charger; it's components; battery; system (?!); something else?

It may be your power jack that somehow got dislodged. Is your Dell still under warranty? I would give it a RMA if still under warranty.

What exactly are you asking? It sounds like you have a faulty power jack on your laptop. Either that, or your AC adapter is bad.

Unless you are good with a solder gun, I wouldn't recommend resoldering the jack.

Get a new AC adapter. They are rather cheap.
