Dell Inspiron 8600 Won’t Charge – Do you need a new charger?

If your Dell Inspiron Laptop will not charge, do you need a new Laptop Charger? Follow these steps to find out for yourself before you waste your money. Many Dell Inspiron 8600 Laptop Chargers will have a small light on them to indicate the power is flowing through it correctly. If this light is no longer working the chances are you will need a new power supply.

If your Dell Laptop Charger still has this light indicating it is powering fine, move your way down to the tip of the charger. Does the cable and tip of the charger look ok? Check the inside of the tip. Sometimes there will be a small ‘pin’ inside here. If this is broken the connection to the laptop will not be correct and it will not charge the laptop.

If everything looks ok with the Dell Inspiron Adapter test it with a voltmeter to see if there is any output. If there isn’t you will need a new adapter. Indeed, if any of the above faults are detected you will require a brand new charger.

If your laptop power supply has passed all of the above tests there may be something wrong with your laptop itself which is more serious and usually more costly to remedy. Take your laptop to a repair store to be checked over if you believe your laptop is at fault. For your replacement chargers why not visit Laptop Power UK for an original Dell replacement
