Battery Button not working

Jump to solution

Peace be upon you;

I am using Dell inspiron N4030, service tag < ADMIN NOTE : Service tag removed per privacy policy >, I installed all available drivers available, but the battery button on the keyboard isn't working at all, all other function keys are working fine.

Win7 (64x)

Thanks in advance.

If the battery health meter is not coming up when you press the F3 key it can mean a couple of things.

If you don’t see the battery health meter when you press F3 try pressing FN and F3 and see if it will come up.  The notebook may be configured in the BIOS with function key first, instead of Multimedia key first. If you would like the check the BIOS, start the system while tapping F2,  select the "advanced"  tab, look for "Function Key Behavior" you can choose between Multimedia first or function key first.

If neither configuration helps, and pressing FN and F3, or just F3 doesn't do anything then Dell Quickset may not be installed. The battery health meter is part of quickset. You can find Quickset for the N4030 from the following link.

 

I hope that this helps.

You are correct, at the moment it isn't listed directly under the N4030.  A majority of consumer notebooks will have Quickset so when installing drivers, do a search for quickset with your notebook and you should be able to find the correct file.

I am glad that it helped.

Hi,

I've just bought a Dell XPS 14 and experience the same problem. I tried pressing F3 only and Fn+F3 but it didn't help. Can you recommend a solution for my XPS?

Thanks!
