Im having a problem with a dell inspiron 6000. When I plug the adapter in the power lights comes on and stays on....but the hard drive light only lights up for about 5 seconds. I charged the battery overnite and un plugged it but the battery does not keep the charge. Im assuming the adapter is good because the light on it stays lit. Is this a battery problem? Looks like it but im not sure. Thanks
I'm thinking that it is a battery problem if the battery is not holding a charge. How old is the battery? If your laptop is still under warranty, I'd recommend sending it in and getting another battery free of charge. If not, there are plenty of sites that offer cheap batteries (price wise) with longer life.
