Just recently after charging my Dell powered on and the battery icon was read. It says there is no battery detected, yet it is able to stay on. Any idea how to change the icon? Or what is exactly up with it? Would be nice to know as I JUST got this computer 3 weeks ago.
Inspiron 15z comes in two different models, Inspiron 1570 and Inspiron 5523. Please share the exact model.
You may check the status for the battery in the system setup.
Also, check if the Adapter is being recognized. Check the status for ‘AC Adapter Type’ on the ‘Main’ tab.
I would suggest you to drain the residual power from the laptop:
Reconnect the battery and the adapter and then turn on the system.
Keep me posted with the information. I will be glad to assist you further.
