Dell Inspiron E1505 Battery

My Inspiron is experiencing power issues. The older battery stays at 86% and charging. When the AC adapter is removed the computer turns off immediately. I bought a new battery and the computer says no battery is present and again turns off when the AC adapter is removed. What are my options besides buying a new computer. Obviously a new battery is not the issue. Thanks.

I've seen this.

It should be interesting to see Dell's answer but tell a little more about the replacement battery. What Dell part number did you get for that battery? That way everyone can check to see if it was the right battery.

More about my experience. The owner had picked up an OEM battery. It never worked out. In the end they were bitter about it and while I commiserated about it they expected me to fix the OEM battery!

That doesn't look like a Dell part number.

Tell the make please and let's hope it's a Dell. Just sharing we ordered the Dell battery for my friend above and it's working fine now. He still is smarting over the OEM adventure.

Battery Type

This is not a Dell battery. I bought it through a battery warehouse. Did I goof?

I have bought a non-Dell battery a few months ago and have no problem with it so far. It's ridiculous for Dell to charge so much for their battery. The price you pay can almost buy a brand new no-frill laptop! Mine costs more than 50% less than Dell's. I suggest you contact the seller about the battery, maybe you got a damaged one.

Bad Notebook batteries

I came across a customer whose replacement battery was behaving similarly. Apparently they'd bought it from a famous online auction site and upon checking back with my technical support team at Dell, the serial number indicated it was a counterfeit. I had to advise the customer that best thing to do was to order direct from Dell. That was about 2 months ago. Haven't been back so I assume everything is OK now.

Even looking at the battery and the way it sat in the Notebook there was something wrong about the appearance...uneven gaps etc. around the battery.

Hope that may help.

Dell Inspiron E1505 - Battery issues

I?m having trouble with my battery too!
I bought my notebook on December of 2006 (I know it?s an oldie!) but it was working good until now, the problem is my battery.

My notebook's original battery worked for like a year and a half than after that I had to always use it plug in.

I took a while to replace the battery but I finally did last June, I bought from a website, but I made sure it was the right model(model number:GSD6400) it worked for 4 months, but it isn?t anymore! It says that it?s charging but it?s stuck on 31% and the battery feels is cold all the time and every time the AC adapter is removed the note shuts down.

Does anybody know a program that can find out if the problem is my note or the battery?

Thanks =)

Looks the same to me.

You didn't get a Dell battery from Dell. Some rail against that but what happened a few months ago with batteries catching fire and the liability problem meant that makers had to lock out non-maker batteries.

There is no such program.
