dvsman said:yeah actually now you mention it it did say a few times that it did not reconise the adapter about 2 months ago but then it started working again shortly after so i figured it was just a one off now this with the "pluged in, not charging" thing it must be what you say :3 thanks for your help mate i'll be calling dell up ASAP :3
Is it the stock power adaptor? I know my M17x is sometimes finicky about the power supply. Most times it will detect it as a real DELL power adaptor but once in a blue moon, it will say non-Dell power adaptor and refuse to recharge. If that is the case, I would definitely call it in while I still had warranty coverage. Good luck!
Karosuu said:Is that a "battery charging mode" or just a "battery mode?" I was under the impression that it just made my computer run off of the battery or not (when plugged in).
Did You tried Pressing the key: Fn + F2 to activate or diactivate the battery charging mode?
