Dell Inspiron 17R SE Battery Issue? Turns off when only using battery

Q: Dell Inspiron 17R SE Battery Issue? Turns off when only using battery

Hey there,
I've been using my upgraded Inpiron 17R SE happily for a couple of years by now. I've even gone as far as buying an 128GB SSD to futureproof it. This is the only drive - besides the DVD drive - currently present in the laptop. However I've had an issue for quite a while:
Whenever I try to boot the Laptop only using the Battery (even fully charged) it Posts then loads Windows and turns of just before the Login-Screen (I can't see it). When I proceed to turn it back on, it Posts then beeps and says that there is a Real Time Clock Error and gives me the option to proceed booting or to enter Setup.
This however doesn't occur when using the Power-Brick. Moreover it isn't always the case. Sometimes the Laptop boots and works fine just using the battery, but then upon opening a Programm (while under battery-power) it shuts of and gives the same error message again. If it decides to work the battery still lasts for 2-2.5 hours.
I'm really confused to what the problem is. It could be a power delivery problem, but it's still the original battery and laptop with only the HDD changed to a SSD.
I'm aware of it being a rather old machine, but selling it is my only hope for getting a new laptop for college, but I can't sell it in this state.
I'm at a lost and really really sad because of this issue. I'm sorry for any typos or grammar mistakes, I'm a non native english speaker.

Can someone help me with this problem? So I just received my brand new Dell Inspiron 15 3000 and the battery is not charging. It says it's "Plugged In, Charging" but it never goes up and stays at 0%. At first I thought I just need to plug it in for several hours but it's been 5 hours now and still the battery stays at 0%. I tried running the BIOS Diagnostics just to see if there are problems and there's none. The battery status says everything is running normally and the Battery State says it's Idle. I tried draining the flea power several times, removing and reattaching the battery, but to no avail. I'm getting really frustrated and I'm really close to throwing this laptop back to Dell. 
I read somewhere that I have to update the BIOS but it won't update unless the battery is charged at least 10%. Someone also suggested that Windows 8.1 is causing the problem. I haven't even started using this laptop and it's already giving me a *** ton of problems. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks guys! :)

Hi there,

I'm having dell inspiron 3521 laptop. My battery is 4 cell (40WAh) and recently it was permanently failed. So, i decided to replace it with new one. The question is if i replace my 4 cell battery with 6 cell battery, will it leads to any problems? Can some one please help me to resolve this.
Thanks in advance.

A:What will happen when i replace my dell 40WAh battery with 60WAh battery for Inspiron 3521?

As long as the battery is otherwise compatible -- and you realize it will increase the weight AND the size of the notebook (while the 4-cell likely fits entirely inside the system, the 6-cell will protrude from the back of the system), you will be fine.  There's also a big reason (safety among them) why OEM batteries cost more than third-party knockoff units, if that's a consideration.

My Dell has been acting up pretty recently (6 months old and still under warranty), and the battery does not charge past 80%. Once it get's near the 80% charge, it immediately fills up to 100%.

I've remembered using the laptop for more than 6 hours under moderate use but now it barely lasts 2 hours.

Please give me some advice because I'm really dependent on this laptop.

I have been using my Inspiron 1300 for several years with no problems. Just recently, I had to leave an application running when I went to bed. The computer was on battery power and at some point must have died. In the morning when I plugged the adapter in it came on with the battery status lamp giving groups of 5 orange flashes ie 5 flashes - pause - 5 flashes etc. The battery would not recharge. The computer still worked fine from the adapter. I searched the internet and could not find a matching circumstance, nor reason for this failure. So I purchased a new 6-cell battery. The new battery works fine (though I don't think the life is as good as the old one was when new). However I have a new problem.
I now tend to use the computer on battery until it is low and then recharge it. (I got this method from an internet search, that it is better for overall battery life)). So this is the sequence of events.
I use the computer for a session until the battery icon on the screen is on its last third. I then plug in the charger. The computer may still be on, or I might switch it off. In either case, when I return later the status light is continuously flashing orange. If I now switch on the computer the battery icon indicates full charge. If I remove the adapter, wait a few seconds and then plug it in again, the status light blinks green once every 7 seconds or so.
Any ideas of what is going on?

Hi All,

Recently a friend of mine dropped off her Dell Inspiron M101z netbook (3months old).. The dang thing doesn't want to turn on for some reason. I've tested the ac adapter with my MM and it's getting a clean 19v.. I also tested the adapter in a similar laptop and it worked fine. I did that with and without the battery, and for some strange reason when I push the power button two times fast with the battery inserted, the power LED blinks once. When I try this with the ac adapter plugged in, the LED doesn't blink... What do you peeps think?

I have had my Dell Inspiron 5520 Laptop since late 2012. It has been a great computer, and although I have recently upgraded to a new Dell laptop, I still use my 5520 for writing and entertainment purposes. The only reason I upgraded at all was because I had a hard drive go bad and didn't realize that it was only the hard drive at the time. I restored the computer with a different version of Windows 7 after I replaced the drive and everything is working great - except the battery charging. It is sporadic. What happens is I plug in the charging cord at times, the computer detects it for a second or two, and then it no longer charges. I ran a complete PC health check and it showed everything is working properly and the battery is healthy, but it did not detect it being plugged in even when it was. I also flashed the BIOS, and it had no real affect on the charging issue. WHAT DID WORK was shutting down the computer, removing the battery, and pressing the power button for 30 seconds and reinstalling the battery. After I do that, it does detect the charging cord is connected and the battery charges properly - but only for a week or two, and then I usually have to do it all over again. Any thoughts? Is my battery going? Charging cord? Any other thoughts? It's not a HUGE deal that this is happening. I love this computer. If I can correct the problem, I will. Thanks!

I bought a new alternative battery and installed it to my laptop. I ran all diagnostics and there were no problem found.
At full charge, I unplugged the AC power and my laptop turned off randomly.
I tried to turn it on again, it only loads until Windows log-on screen and turned-off.
I started again in Set-up mode on battery and ran diagnostic from DOS environment, there were no problem detected.
Again, started Windows normally, but it turned off at Windows log-on screen. 
If I connects it with AC power, I will see battery at more than 95% or even full-charge.
Do you have any idea or suggestion to solve this problem?

Hi, There seems to be a problem with the power management on my T570. I have two batteries, and I think the main one to be used is the battery 2. Sometimes, I'll be working unplugged, and my computer randomly turns off. Not the usual "Windows turning off" sequence, but an immediate blackout with no feedback. When I turn the computer back on, I see that Battery 2 is at 0% and Battery 1 is now in use. It does seem to be a problem in the power management, no? Thank you,Fred

A:My computer turns off immediately when Battery 2 reaches 0%, even if Battery 1 is 100%

Sounds like power management or battery reporting status wrong.  Are you still under warranty? If yes, call support first.  Can you get (borrow) another battery to try?

Over the last 2 days I have been having a problem as indicated in the title of this post. The fault has rectified itself 3 times, but again today, it is back to "battery plugged in, not charging." As I am running the laptop (Windows Vista Home Premium; 32 bit) on the adapter without problems, I assume that the adapter itself may not be faulty.
I also have a Dell Inspiron 630M laptop running Windows 7.  Can I safely use that adapter with the Vista laptop, without causing damage to the Vista ?  If it is safe to do so, and the battery on the Vista starts charging, then it would indicate that the Vista adapter/charger has some kind of fault.
Hoping someone can give me some guidance. Thanks.

If the adapter has the same plug and the same or higher power rating, you can swap them.
Check to see whether the 1545 recognizes the AC adapter or whether it shows unknown (F2 at powerup).  If it shows unknown with two different adapters, you have a bad power jack or a bad mainboard.

I have an ancient Dell Inspiron 710M which is still running. I want to hang onto it as I have some applications which will not run on Windows 10. I hear a lot of stories about failing lithium batteries causing fires. I guess batteries like most things break down over time. The battery only runs the laptop for ~15 minutes. Can I please seek some advice on whether the lithium battery is safe to continue using or should I dispose of the battery to be safe?

A:Dell Inspiron 710M battery

Unless the battery is showing signs of overheating, it's likely fine.  Older batteries like the one in your system are steel-encased.  The bigger issue is in newer systems which, due to slim form factors and weight, are no longer cased in steel - these can swell and cause issues ranging from sticky touchpads to physical damage to the system case as a result.  Yours will not - older batteries are also under less stress as they're not subject to the same power demands and environments as hot as in newer systems.

I have a ThinkPad T460P. Some time ago it fell off to the side of couch while plugged in and bent the adapter / end of charger insert upon impact. After i would receive a "plugged in but not charging" message. I could still get this machine to charge if i closed it and inserted the charger, let it sit, and then open. Somewhat inconsistent but it worked. Finally the other day i was running a video and the battery drained completely without realizing it was not charging. I received a critically low battery message. Charger no longer worked and machine would not turn on. I bought a new 90W charger to see if it would do the trick. When i plug this in, the light above the thinkpad sign and also the light in power button flashes 3 times but then nothing else. Normally this light would strobe. The charger appears to work as the light near the port has gone from yellow to green. But the machine no longer turns on. Sometimes i can get it to flash when pressing the power but nothing. Also tried a number of tricks like taking the battery out, holding the power button for a while, putting all back in and trying again. Machine will also not turn on when plugged in without the battery in. Thoughts? Am i cooked here?

My Dell Inspiron 6000 wont run on it's battery. The battery says it's charged, and 100%. The battery charge indicator on the battery is 100%. I've checked the power cord and it will run the laptop without the battery connected. However when the A/C power is disconnected and the laptop jumps to battery power, it immediately dies. I've checked and updated the BIOS, and everything checks out...any suggestions would be helpful.

Well while running Dell's maintenance software it showed that my battery was failing hmm. I have never used the laptop w/o it being plugged into the Ac charger and when used probably under a hour a day. It was new in 2013.

Does anyone know how Dell determines how the status of a battery is? Perhaps its just how old the battery is? I doubt that Dell's software actually has a Volt/Amp load tested built into the laptop??

With that all said if I do have to buy a battery who would handle the best bang for the buck? I see that the prices are all over the place ;-)

Hi there, my sister has a Dell Inspiron (3521), which she bought brand new about 2 years ago. About 3 months ago her battery stopped working, as soon as the power adapter came out, or was unplugged, the laptop would instantly shut off. She bought a new battery but had the same problem.
She took it to one of those computer repair shops and was charged lmost 200 and it's the same now as when she put it in.

When I switch it on I get a warning saying: Warning: The battery cannot be identified. The system will be unable to charge this battery.

The battery is the same as the one that was in it when she bought it, so I doubt that that is the problem.

Could it be a driver problem or something?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi pgorney, Based on the description the issue appears to be related to hardware. Try to disconnect the battery from the computer and power on the with just the AC adapter connected. If the computer works powers up, follow the below mentioned steps to troubleshoot:

Disconnect the AC adapter and battery from the computer, then press the power button for 10-15 seconds to remove the residual power. 
Power on the computer with only AC adapter connected to the computer and tap F2 key repeatedly at Dell logo to enter the BIOS. 
Under Main Tab please check the AC adapter type (that is if it says 65W/90W or anything else). 
Power off the computer and unplug the AC adapter from the wall, and from the computer. 
Ensure that the AC adapter is unplugged long enough for the LED on the AC Adapter to go off. 
Connect the adapter and the battery to the computer, and then power on the computer. 
Check if the battery is getting charged.
If issue persists, power off the computer and check if the battery is getting charged.

Please post the results.

Does anyone know where I can find a manual showing how to open a Dell Inspiron 4150 and replace the CMOS battery? And - I see batteries sold without the battery connector. Is the original connector reusable? Is it soldered to the battery leads?
