I just joined this forum so i hope you guys can help. i'm pretty stumped by this problem i've got. My original power adapter for my inspiron 6000 was fried due to a power surge. I got a replacement adapter through a reseller, 65w, 19.5 V, 3.34A, PA-12 family.
However, it won't be recognized by the system, an error message come up saying
*** "The AC Power Adapter Type cannot be determined. Your System will run slower and the battery will not be charged. Please connect a 65W Dell Adapter to your system" ***
I've tried flashing the bios from version A07 to A09, the latest version from Dell. I've also tried the adapter on someone else's Inspiron 6000, same error message appeared.
Do you guys think that the adapter is faulty, or is it simply not the proper specs? I checked and it's all correct, the output voltage/amperage/wattage.
Hope you guys can offer some productive tips.
