I'm Ludo Siren, and I have a problem with my Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook. It seems when I turn on the computer, it says it doesn't recognize the AC adapter. It says I should plug in a 90W -AC Adapter. However the thing is- that's exactly what I have plugged in, and it won't recognize it!
I've run a diagnostic of the computer using the on screen command to do so that comes along with the adpater warning, and it says it has no problems.
In addition- I believe the Dell Batteries (mine is a regular battery that comes along with the laptop brand I have) have a life that Dell hasn't told me about. This problem happened at the same speed before, and the first time they told me I must not have been taking proper care of the battery. However, I have in fact been doing a cycle. I let the battery die out, and then recharge it until it is full. The charge it holds however is dwindling, and it won't hold at all because it supposedly can't recognize my adapter.
I know that in the end, I'm going to have to buy a spare part- that's always what happens. But Dell refuses to speak with me unless I pay them a fee since my warranty is up. I can't afford that and the overly-pricey parts Dell pushes at you. In a final additive to my problem: can anyone recomend where I can get cheaper but moderately well quality parts? I have surfed the web and found several but who can you trust now-a-days! I find I've browsed around here before and you seem to be a realiable bunch that fix all kinds of problems. So I think I do believe for certain I can get some solid good advice!
Hope this is enough information on my part- but if you need anything more I'd be happy to supply it. Thank you kindly for your time!
