A family member brought me their Dell Inspiron 1545 a few hours ago (I'm a software engineer so I know how to fix any and all computer issues, right??). They just bought a new battery for it that won't charge. After exhausting my Google-foo, I see three possible solutions:
- Bad motherboard (I don't think this is the case).
- Bad battery.
- Bad charger.
I'm thinking that #3 is the most likely because they are using a generic power supply. If everyone is agreed, or at least leaning in that direction, is there anyway to bypass this "feature" of Dells?
Any help is appreciated!
