    :confused:I have purchased a new power adapter and battery, my issue is that the system continues to think that there is something wrong with it. When you bring the batt meter up it states that the sys is plugged in but not charging. Not sure if it is related but the only problems in device manager is associated to BASE SYSTEM DEVICE location PCI BUS2 device 9, function 2 & 3 w/a physical device object name:\device\NTPNP_PCI10023 & 24. I've read some have gone from a 60hz adapter to a 90hz, some say update bios, but I have tried everything that I can think of but the 90hz adapter. PLEASE IF ANYONE CAN ASSIST IN THE DIAGNOSIS WEATHER WANTED OR UNWANTED KNOWLEDGE IS GLADLY APPRECIATED

    THANKS

    You mean 60 watt and 90 watt?

    Only thing I can suggest other than updating the bios, is to reset the cmos, but on that model requires you to totally disassemble the laptop to remove the cmos battery, thanks Dell.

    Resetting the bios with the battery and AC adapter unplugged may allow it to start charging again, a slim possibility.

    Sometimes it is a defect with the motherboard.

    Does that model have a charging circuit.????
    Mine does and if that fails, it will still not recognize the 90W power supply.
