Hi everyone! I have a mystery on my hands. I have an Inspiron 1566. The issue is it’s not charging, I’ve replaced everything I can think of, the battery, power Jack, and charger. All brand new. It will power up but keeps giving me an adapter warning, saying the power adapter is not giving the adequate wattage. At this point I am thinking it’s the board. But before I give up I was hoping someone here had some miraculous idea I hadn’t thought of. Thanks.

Are you sure it's 1566 ? I can't find anything with that model number online.

Some Dell laptops will only charge if you use a genuine Dell charger of the correct wattage. Could that be the problem ?

No I’m using an OEM adapter. And I’ve tried changing that out too. There is a 1566 laptop it’s just not very popular. But if you google Inspiron 1566 support you can find the servic manual on the dell site.
