When Power Supply is Plugged into The Computer It Shuts Off...Why?
I have a Dell Latitude D620. I did a system restore on it going back to a previous date in the computer. It went through the restore and rebooted itself. It then said system restore not complete, please try again. Redid the system restore a second time. It completed the restore and booted down and will not reboot. Now when you plug the adapter into the computer, the green light on the adapter goes off. If you unplug it from the computer and leave it plugged into the wall the adapter green light comes on but then when you attach it back to the computer it goes out again. I cannot start the computer without the adapter as the battery is dead. I have researched possible problems but cannot find anything. Anyone might know what the problem would be? When you have a moment and thank you for your time!
The battery is not charging from your description.
1. power off, remove battery and put on charger and then try again. battery shorts are common on the D620.
2. try another power adapter as the power adapters have a pretty high failure rate on the D series Latitude laptops (I have over 120 of them at my office, they are not very reliable and have many issues)
3. check and clean battery and power contacts
4. check power connectors to mb and to batt
update if these do not work
