    Hi All,

    Has Anyone had this problem with there Inspiron 9300?

    My system works fine when running from the Ac adapter but it doesn't charge the battery ( the battery is new from dell under the recall) i have replaced the jack socket on the motherboard myself but still no luck.

    wasn't sure if to buy a new battery or get a new Ac adapter next ????:confused:

    Anyone got any ideas plz ..... also to add in Bios say ac adapter as unknow device also cannot detect the battery :confused: :confused:

    Thanks Guys and Gals

    Try and clean the contects on the battery and the notebook contects aswell. If your notebook is under warranty, then it may be a good idea to get Dell to repair it. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the reply,

    I have tried the contacts and still no good :mad:

    Unfortunatly its just out of warranty,also with me installing a new Ac jack plug onto the motherboard wont go down too well with there warranty.

    Oh well its still with the AC adapter for now ... just ordered a new adapter tonight so we will see if that cures it..

    Cheers

    It's probably the battery, especially if you didn't have this problem before you got the new battery.
