How to Fix a Dell Latitude D630 Battery

Published on by delllaptopparts

Laptops often encounter issues with their power source. The ability for a Dell laptop's battery to hold a charge is imperative to the operation and core functionality of the device. Unfortunately, a number of problems may affect either the battery itself, the AC adapter, or even the wall outlet used for powering the laptop--and all these problems can cripple your machine. However, even if you lack experience or computer expertise, you can go about fixing your Dell Latitude D630 Battery in a number of ways, all of which require no unique tools.

Check your Dell laptop's connections. The easiest fixes are often the ones that remedy your computer's problems. Your Dell Latitude D630 Battery cannot charge unless your AC adapter is properly plugged in. Make sure the AC adapter is securely plugged into the back of your Dell laptop, and that this connection has not come loose. Also, ensure that the AC adapter is snugly connected to the wall socket or surge protector, whichever is applicable in your situation.

Attach your AC adapter or surge protector/power strip to a different wall outlet. Sometimes a wall outlet can malfunction or be blown, resulting in no power flowing forth and thus rendering your battery unable to charge via the AC adapter. In this instance, try plugging the AC adapter directly into another wall outlet, or unplug your surge protector and connect it (and by extension your AC adapter) into a new outlet.

Make sure your surge protector/power strip is powered on. Some of these devices have their own dedicated power switch on the top face of their body. Even if the surge protector/power strip is correctly plugged into a wall's power source, if the power switch on the device has been flipped off, all devices connected to the power strip will have no power (including your AC adapter). Flip this switch back on so that your battery can charge.

Consider replacing your battery. Check your battery indicator light on the bottom or side of the Dell laptop (depending on your exact model) and determine whether your battery is dead or dying. Laptop batteries like the one found in your Dell laptop last for approximately 1,000 charges before they begin to partially lose their ability to hold a charge or simply die altogether. Flip over your Dell laptop to reveal the bottom of the unit. Find the horizontal outline of the battery at the top center of the Dell's bottom side. You will find the battery release mechanism just below; slide it to the left in order to disengage and pop out the old battery for replacement. Slide the new battery in until it locks into place.
