Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1545 Notebook ?

Hi. I bought a generic dell charger replacement for my laptop and it doesn't charge the battery, I was wondering if there was some way to make the computer properly recognize it.


Answers :

Unfortunatly there is no way to make a 3rd party AC adapter function with certain dell models. The packaging ont he adapter you purchased may say that it is compatable with your computer but dell units are very specific when it comes to which AC adapters will work properly with them. The best thing you can do is return the 3rd party adapter and purchase the correct one from dell directly. The reason that dall laptops don't all work with 3rd part ACAs is becuase of a signaling line build into the laptop's motherboard. This line enables communication from the SuperIO controller on the board with a corresponding EPROM built into the AC adapter. If the SuperIO controller receives a signal from the wrong EPROM (AKA wrong AC adapter) then it will not recognize the power source and may or may not work properly or at all.

I have no audio device recognized on my computer after full XP system reboot. My cables are all properly plugged in, as they were prior to the reboot when sound was functioning properly.

Moreover, my audio folder shows absolutely no audio mixer device and will not let me alter anything in that folder.
