Re: Battery will not charge

Hello,
In response to your question about the Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop charging issue, i posted the pictures of how i was able to fix my laptop.  I'm not sure if it will be the same problem for you, but its worth a try.

^^ there is a link to all of the photos i took for this laptop.  I just followed the positive rail around the motherboard, starting at the plug on the back of the laptop.   I noticed that this particular point (c34) made a very small spark and had a little bit of physical movement when i touched it with the probe.  I looked closer, and the solder  had cracked along the joint, causing no electricity to flow. I heated up my soldering iron and re-melted that joint, and added a little solder.

Any more questions, feel free to contact me

Re: Battery will not charge

How do you flash the BIos back?  Will you lose everything you've done and saved to the computer?  My Vostro won't charge and I wonder if this will help.

Re: Battery will not charge

You do not need to flash the Bios back, Do a Bios upgrade to the A06 since the D610 has a Bios of A03 and all the abnormalities like keyboard errors and battery not charging whereas the charger and battery are ok will be history get to this link to get the new Bios on dell downloads
