I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

My Dell Inspiron 17R 5720 doesn't recognize charger any more. And unfortunately my warranty expired 2 month ago.It was plugged in and working in the morning, but then in the afternoon I noticed that it was running on the battery only. It wont start without battery (just charger plugged in).
1. So here what I have done to debug. Me and my brother, we have purchased the same Dell laptops at the same time a year and a bit ago. This is why for a debugging purposes it was good.I took my charger and plugged in to his computer. And it works. Definitely not the charger issue I guess. And when I plug charger in to my computer, green light is still on the charger. And I have the original charger that came with the laptop.
2. Now, laptop works on the battery only, so this means that motherboard is working. I guess.
3. Next thing I did was unplugged charger and removed the battery from the laptop. Then I pushed and hold "Power" button for 45 seconds to discharge a flea charge. Plugged charger back in but laptop wont start.
4. Next I started laptop on the battery, went to BIOS and checked if the charger is recognized in the BIOS. No, it doesn't recognize charger. So, if it is not a charger then what else can it be?
5. Laptop doesn't have any strange smells so I'm not sure if anything happened with the motherboard, but I would assume mother board is ok because it works of the battery.
6. I was thinking updating the BIOS, but I can't, because it wont update whi... Read more

A:Dell Inspiron 17R 5720 doesn't work with charger. Charger is not recognized. Not charger problem.

Hi CJ777,
Thanks for reaching out with your query. You pretty much figured out all points of failure. Good job.
If the adapter is not detected in BIOS, it most likely is an issue with the mother board. In the BIOS set up, AC adapter should show up as 65w or 90w. If the adapter status is 'None' or 'Unknown Device Installed', it indicates that the mother board is not detecting the adapter for which the battery is not getting charged. Once the battery charge drains, I'm sure the adapter will not charge it again. Replacing the system board should resolve this issue.

Hi! I have 4 years old Lenovo Yoga Ideapad 13.  The problems started couple weeks ago, when the computer wouldn't run or start up without being plugged in. I followed some other people's advice and got a new battery. It seemed to fix to problem for while. Now few weeks after the same problem stands with the new battery. It won't start or run, but when plugged in it says the battery is 100% and charging.   I tried checking if the charger isn't working, but it charges all fine on my other Yoga, which has the same charger model. So please note that this isn't the common problem that is seen here on the forums, that the battery doesnt charge. I'm pretty frustrated, as this problem persists even though I changed the battery. Anyone have ideas? I figured it could have something to do with the battery wire connecting battery to the motherboard, but there doesn't seem to be any defects or loose wires.  However, I tried taking off the battery connection wire when plugged in, and then I get the message "No battery detected" instead of the regular "100% Fully charged". Any help is appreciated.

When I plug the charger in the message on the battery icon on the bottom toolbar reads as "73%, plugged in, not charging". Obviously the laptop is recognising the charger (i.e "plugged in") but it is not allowing the battery to charge.
I have installed every update on the computer and I have recently searched for any outstanding BIOS updates. The system seems to suggest there is a BIOS update to be installed yet when I try to install it the system says that it cannot detect a charger, and won't complete the update, or it won't complete the update without a charger plugged in in the first place. It's a no-win situation. The computer and charger are only 14 months old so this is very unsatisfactory. When I remove the battery the computer operates on AC power only, so again the charger is working, it simply won't charge the battery and therefore once the battery runs down to 0, which it will eventually, I will be limited to using AC power only.
If I restart the laptop with the charger plugged in it diverts me to a warning page saying that the charger is not recognised and I am given the option to go to the BIOS setup, go to diagnostics or to continue. If I choose "continue" it simply returns me to this warning page every time so the only way to power up the laptop is to do so with the AC charger out, and to then plug it in once the system has started so that the battery doesn't drain completely.
Please help.

A:Inspiron 15 5559 charger not charging battery (manufacturers charger being used)

An unrecognized AC adapter will not charge the battery.
First try a new OEM Dell adapter.  If that's also not recognized, replace the DC power jack:
www.parts-people.com/index.php
If neither the new adapter nor the DC jack solves the problem, you've got a bad charge circuit - replace the mainboard.

Hi, I know this might not be the correct forum for this problem, but I couldn't find answers anywhere else.

My situation is, I have an Acer Aspire 3050. Everything works perfectly normal, except the charger charging the battery. I am willing to replace the battery/charger, but I am unsure which one is causing the problem.

- The laptop charges (about 1 hour for 1%), up to about 3% when it stops charging.
- When I plug the adaptor into the laptop, sometimes it may not charge. I have to play about the way it is plugged in, and if I slightly touch it it will stop charging.
- The adaptor has a minor loose wire.

I have no idea if my battery has ran out of cycles, but I know the laptop has been plugged in non-stop for about a week (I am sure this causes the problem). But then again, it might be the loose wire on the charger.

Can anyone help with this? Thanks!

A:Do I need to replace the battery or charger?

I'll have a go at answering the question, first, with some questions.
Are there no indicator lights anywhere, on the ac adapter or lead?
How far do you live from a computer outlet? If near take your comp,lead, ac adapter, & get them checked out.
I guess leaving it on for a week, it might have been more economical to take to a shop?
Do you know a good electrician, who can test the charger see if current flows? Have you contacted Asus?

I recently damaged my genuine laptop charger and couldnt find a charger with the same specs, the only one I found had a lower standard, it works fine but I am afraid of damages on the long run, any ideas?

Hp pavillion dv4
old charger output 19V 4.74A 90W
New charger output 18.5V 3.5A 65W

Thanks....
 

A:Does a charger with lower watts and current damage a laptop?

your risk is to the charger, not the laptop.old charger output 19V 4.74A 90W
New charger output 18.5V 3.5A 65W​the voltage difference is only 0.5v , the big difference is the
current output.

googling for Hp pavillion dv4 I found the hp dv4 spec to be
Power

* 65 W AC Adapter
* 6-cell Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion)​which is IDENTICAL

I guess you have a match with the new charger and the original was just a bonus

A:help finding better charger lenovo v570

It's not a good idea to use a different manufacturer's adapter if you can help it. Why not lengthen the AC cord instead?

Here's a 12 foot AC cord that should fit your adapter:

They are available, and you might even be able to find one locally. I believe that Digi-Key has offices all over the place, so you should be able to order it from them and have it delivered to you.

Recently I bought a charger for my HP G61-110SA which was just a replacement adapter. Now yesterday it did something weird. Basically, there are two pictures of the two indicators there are to show whether it is charging, one is on the front and one is next to the port on the side. Basicaally the charger wasnt changing the indicator on the side or the one on screen but the one on the front was working when I turned it on. By default the laptop chages brightness when plgged in but now it sort of brightens a bit (not to the full level as should do) and then goes back to normal. Today the laptop is still doing the same but the front light now only turns on for a few seconds before turning off! I dont know whether it is charging. Is this the laptop or the charger. Any help would be useful, I have attatached the side indicator and the front one

UPDATE: I found a website which said you could turn it off and start without battery but with charger and then turn off and use both. However, I turned it off and removed the battery and it wouldnt charge. Then I put the battery in and it started charging-weird. Also the light on the front doesnt last very long so I am stuck. ANY HELP?

I recently received a Dell Inspiron 6000 and a Dell Studio 1737 laptops from my uncle minus the chargers. A few years ago, both the original chargers died so they bought replacement Rayovac batteries for each laptop and a replacement charger. I guess it worked for a while until the batteries stopped charging. I'm assuming it was due to the charger not being OEM. Right now, I have the laptops running on an HP 19.5 volt 7.4 amp charger with the same polarity but none of the batteries charge and I get the error message on boot about using an unknown charger. So right now, I'm looking at getting an OEM charger to see if I can get the batteries to charge and to return the HP charger to my dad (it's the charger for his work laptop). I found this Dell PA-3E charger but I'm not sure if it will it work. It's the same voltage, amps and polarity but it's not the same model charger that's written on the bottom of the laptop. I'm afraid that the laptop will run but will not charge. Would this charge and work for both the Inspiron and Studio laptops?

I have a Lenovo ideapad 110-14IBR and the charger isn't working anymore. The problem is the wires (as the first time it 'stopped' working, all I needed to do was hang a certain part of it on something high and it'll work but it doesn't now). I keep my things in the laptop bag provided and always use that little velcro thing to keep the wires from tangling but I guess I wasn't taking care of it enough. I've only had this for a year and a couple of months but the warranty for the charger had passed (the warranty wass 6 months only) so I guess I'd have to buy a new one but I wanted to buy a different charger as the current one that stopped working seemed like the wire wasn't strong in the first place or something (honestly, it looked like a ;arger phone charger and those break easily). I wanted something that might be stronger but I don't know which chargers are compatible with my laptop.
