DEL N5110 charging issue

Q: DEL N5110 charging issue

I have an N5110 some time it does not on with battery and even on direct plug in without battery. Sometime it does not charge the battery and gives message “the AC power adopter cannot be determined…” but system remains on. I have reset the BIOS to defaults and power releasing options also but all in vain..
Note: There is no charging light appearing on when plugged in to the main.

Hi SOHAILTAHIR
Thanks for writing to us.
When did the issue start?
Do you mean there is no light on the charger whatsoever?? If possible can you please try another battery or a charger.
The issue could be the adapter alone as well.
If the system is powering on with the battery now, then please load bios by tapping on f2 during boot and check for the adapter status (ensure charger is plugged in) and also the battery health.
Do provide us your system tag#, email address and name via private message,by clicking on my name in blue and then select send a private message

Ever since the last Windows update (running Windows 10) my laptop has said it isn't charging. I've been using it regularly and the battery power just stays exactly where it is. When I unplug and use it, it drains like it normally would, and when I plug back in, it just maintains whatever percentage it got down to.

Do I need a new battery or AC adapter? Help please

A:Inspiron 15R N5110 Says it isn't charging but it is

I like to suggest you try the steps in the video below for a possible fix.
www.youtube.com/watch

I also like to suggest you check the status of the AC adapter and battery in the BIOS. Please follow steps below

A) Power off computer (make sure AC adapter connected to computer and battery as well).
B) Power on computer, quickly tap the F2 key continuously. You should be in the BIOS screen.

In the BIOS, go to the Advanced tab and look for battery health, it should say "This Battery Is Performing Normally'. If there's any other message, it mean the battery is faulty and need a replacement. Look under the main screen and look for AC adapter type. If the adapter says Unknown or None then it's a problem with adapter

I know I have found many people with this same problem but seemed to have tried everything I can imagine. My Dell laptop is at a 0% charge and says "plugged in, not charging." Here is what I have tried so far:

-New power adapter (with correct wattage)
-New battery
-Updated BIOS
-Uninstalled Compliant Control Battery Method and re-installed it
-Replaced daughter board

None of these have worked, could I have blown a fuse in my motherboard? the computer works great plugged in I just hate to get a new one because it is no longer portable unless I am close to an outlet. Any others with the same problem who had to try something different and it worked?

Thanks!

My Dell Laptop (N5110) is charging extremely slow (about only 1% rise in 24 hours continous charging). The battery health shows that battery is performing normally.
My battery is about 4 years old
Some how i managed to charged upto 16% but when i unplug charger, the battery level goes down very fast.
Do i need to change my battery or my problem is something else?
Is the message "battery is performing normally" fake?
Thanks for help in advance.

A:Dell Laptop Inspiron N5110 Charging Extremely Slow

As long as the AC adapter is recognized and the battery does charge, it's a batter on its way out due to old age.  Four years is a good long run for a battery - if you must use the system on battery, it's time for a new one.

Hello, I've tried searching but didn't find a full explanation for the issue I'm having, I'm military and this is my only way to get online besides work :/..
My N5110 took a fall, screen only displays black, 8 beeps on startup, but the external pc port works, hdmi so far hasn't been working but may jist be the monitor I tried
I bought a new lcd, it powers up BUT it only displays white, and holding d+ while powering on has no change, I see no signs of the self test running, still just the whitish gray blank screen and 8 beeps on startup with the new screen, wiggling also does nothing.
Does it sound likey new screen is defective,  the cable is faulty or what?  Is there any way to test the video card separately?   Is the board broke?  Sorry it's just frustrating to pay 50$ for a screen and I'm not even sure if
The screen is good.
Thanks for the help!

I have a Dell Inspiron 15R N5110 (mid 2011) that runs Windows 8.1.1
Recently, after performing a refresh, I downloaded the drivers again to install them. The audio driver on the N5110 page (arrived at with or without my service tag) says upon extraction that it is only compatible with  m5040 , n5040,  m4040 models. Please provide the correct drivers for the correct model.
When downloaded, the driver works for 2 minutes and then gives a message that "the hardware is not recognized by this IDT package" . In Event Viewer it says PnpDriverImportError for a file called "stwrt64.inf".

A:N5110 Audio Driver Issue

nanoguy Dell Inspiron 15R N5110 (mid 2011) that runs Windows 8.1.1
Hello. Dell does not support Win 8.1 on the 15R N5110 model. To see what I mean, go to the Inspiron 15R support page, click on the Operating System drop down box and you will see that only Windows 7 and 8 are supported.
I also checked on Dell's ftp server and confirmed that there is no 8.1 IDT audio driver available for your model.
You can find the IDT driver in your laptop's Device Manager in the Sound...Controllers category, right click on it, click Properties, click on the "driver" tab, and select "Rollback driver" to try to get back the previous driver you were using.
Or install the Windows 8 IDT audio driver for your model using compatibility mode.
Or just don't try to use an IDT driver. Windows has its own generic native audio driver that will run the audio when there is no vendor (IDT) driver.

Hello I bought new battery for my laptop 4530s. In HP support assistant I ran HP battery check test and the results showed my battery was not discharging even when it is fully discharged to 0 percent and I was running my laptop with AC adapter. Plus it didn't show that it was charging either.The AC adapter is not charging the battery and the laptop works fine when only connected with AC adapter. I tried hard resetting and under the device manager Microsoft ACPI reinstall method but it didn't work and still I am unable to charge the battery. I read on some forums and also tried to update my BIOS, but surprisingly during the BIOS update through USB and only AC adapter plugged in, on the BIOS update page it was written to connect external power eventhough only source that was connected was AC adapter. The problem is with my AC adapter or BIOS or charging circuitory please guide? An early response in this regard will be highly treasured.

Hello,             My laptop is behaving weird since two weeks. when I plugin the charger, the charging is not continuous. for nearly an hour, the charge drops every ten seconds after and again it charges, this keeps repeating till 90 percent, and the charging is unstable. it saturates at 90 percent, and when i hover the  mouse on the battery icon, it shows plugged in but not charging. whole night even if its charged, then also battery never reached full percent. When I start using the laptop on battery power, within one and half hours the battery drops to 30 to 40 percent and the laptop shutsdown without any low battery warning, I dont think so laptop is charging in the way it used to be and my laptop had good battery backup of three hours to max.

A:Charging Issue

Is the issue that the original adapter isn't recognized (enter setup -- F2 at powerup) -- if the adapter shows unknown, the battery will not charge.
If that is happening, try a new Dell adapter (third party adapters will run the system but not charge the battery).  If that doesn't solve the issue, replace the DC jack:
www.parts-people.com/index.php
... and if that doesn't get the adapter recognized, the issue is with the charge circuit on the mainboard.

Hi, and sorry if this has already been answered. I couldn't find any questions that were quite what I'm experiencing so here goes!

Over the weekend my laptop (HP Paviliondv6000, Vista, a little over a year old) stopped holding a charge. It works just fine so long as it's plugged in, but shuts down within a second the power being disconnected. Power thing at the bottom claims it has 22% of battery left, and that has progressively (slowly) gone up but still insta-shuts down if AC is disconnected.

The blue light that normally indicates charging is flashing, which I assume means precisely what the battery indicator tells me: plugged in, not charging.

I've tried taking out the battery, waiting a few seconds, and putting it back in, both with the ac plugged in and not plugged in. I saw a recommend to attempt this while the computer itself was turned on, but I did not trust the site I saw that on.

...help?

Thanks in advance!

Hi there.

This morning i was checking some things before i left home for the day, my cat jumped on my laptop, after he got off i straightened it back up on my lap and heard a click as the laptop screen turned black, the power lights over the button and the red power light were still on.
i held the pwer button down and rebooted, the screen lit up and showed a 'rtc battery low error' i pressed enter and went in to what it was telling me too i immediately pressed exit cause i had no idea what i was doing, the computer rebooted and went to windows normally i signed in and conneted to wifi then i noticed it wasnt charging, i put the charger in and it flickered then went dull, i realized it wasnt charging, so i restarted again, it was a little slow but when i went in to windows it took forever to recognise my Wifi and it would not charge no matter how i moved the cord. I decided to leave it until i got home (am not there yet) before i worried but when i sat it on the floor on its side it was charging, i laid it down and it wasnt then i tried it back in the previous position it wouldnt charge.

Hello, I have a Yoga 500 that is having a problem charging the battery.   When it's plugged into the charger, it cycles between charging and not charging about every second.  I've tried two different chargers and it does the exact same thing.  It's like a loose connection type of symptom. Any ideas on what to try? Thanks for the look!  Dave

Here are the symptoms I've gathered so far 1. The computer will only charge the battery when off or asleep2. The computer will NOT run on AC alone, i.e. if I have the AC adapter plugged in and remove the battery the machine will not start.3. With the computer running, it runs on battery alone.4. If I plug in the AC, the battery icon in the taskbar will not indicate that it is plugged in, but lately it has a sort of flicker to it where it indicates only for a split second that it is plugged in, but will then return to the unplugged indicator, and it will go on doing that every second or so until I unplug the AC. I have tried replacing the Microsoft ACPI- Compliant Control Method Battery driver as others have suggested, but it does not seem to solve the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I have tried using lenovo settings as well as companion from store also got no solution.Also updated the bios from support site  My G580 is running on windows 10 32bit Please do help me.

Laptop quit working. It is currently dead and won't power up. Whenever AC adapter is inserted it blinks white white in quick succession then, orange orange white then it goes out. Same result if battery is removed and AC Adapter is plugged in. I've searched for the meaning behind this indicator pattern but could not find it. Please advise. Thanks.  I don't have an alternate AC adapter to try.

Update. Found another HP AC adapter and it generated the same result. white white in quick succession, then orange orange white indicator light pattern.

Hi I had issue with battery for a while... when charger is plugged in it says plugged in, not charging. When I test battery with UEFI it says Faliure ID: GQ939Q-8GH9KH-XD7WMF-C0DQ03. I've sent laptop to verified HP service and they changed battery. When I've got the laptop back the battery issue start happening again. They told me just to update BIOS so i did and motherboard broke. I sent laptop again for a service.They changed motherboard ant told me battery issue isn't happening any more. When I've got laptop back it started happening again. Bottom line, new battery, new motherboard, latest BIOS and plugged in, not charging issue keeps appearing.Tried installing new battery driver also, didn't helped. Do you know what might be a problem?
