Inspiron E1505 Battery Issue

I have an Inspiron E1505 and having a battery issue.  The battery wasn'
holding much charge and I followed (now, I know poor) directions t
drain the battery completely by turning off the powersave settings an
letting the battery drain completely.  

The AC will charge the battery and the battery will hold a charge fo
about an hour or so but the laptop (neither XP or the BIOS) will no
detect that a battery is installed.  If I unplug AC, it will stay o
even though I turned the power save settings back on but it doesn't kno
how much power is left on the battery.  

I have checked the tester on the battery and all five lights come on.
Is there any way to fix it so the laptop will detect the charge on th
battery since it all seems to be working except the computer reading th

go into device manager, hardware and look under acpi, there is a reference 
to the battery.
If it is not enabled, enable it. That may or may not help. I am writing this 
from memory
on a desktop. Laptop is at work.

enabled.  I tried disabling and enabling it just to see if that would d
anything, but no luck.

Thanks for your help!

2.Dell Inspiron E1505 -Ctrl Key down results in loss of power


I make use of the keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl+c, Ctrl+c, Ctrl+r,
Ctrl+F5, etc. From the time I have been using a new Dell E1505
Inspirion laptop it has been losing power intermittently when the left
hand side Ctrl Key has been pressed along with any other combination.
There are no events written to the event log and when the laptop is
powered back on, it behaves as if nothing has gone wrong. So far the
laptop has lost power like 8 - 10 times in a month.

What could be the problem here? This happens intermittently and only
to me, cos I am the only one in the family that uses the Ctrl key
based shortcuts.

Dell support is a piece of crap and claim that their hardware is fine
and are blaming it on windows, unfortunately, its now beyond the 21
day replacement period and I am running out of patience on this
problem with dell support.

I appreciate your time in reading this post and your help if you can
point me to what would cause a laptop to lose power when a ctrl key is

3.Dell Inspiron E1505/E1705

Getting ready to purchase my first laptop.

Went to the Dell store in Dallas today and was given a proposal for each of 
these systems configured more or less identically.

Core 2 Duo processor, 1 GB memory, 120 GB hard drive,15/17 inch monitor, 8X 
CD/DVD Burner (DVD+/-RW) with double layer DVD+R write capability and many 
other relatively inexpensive accessories.

The 1705 is $1513.13 and the 1505 is 1342.54.  Both prices include tax 
(there is no shipping/handling).

Probably get with my cell phone provider to see what unlimited data service 
would cost each month.  I presently use T-Mobile but my contract is up so I 
can change service without a penalty.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

4.Dell Inspiron E1505 & "stand by" problem

Hi:  I can't get my E1505 to succesfully come out of a stand-by mode.
The hard drive thrashes for a bit but the video never comes on.  I have
upgraded to the latest BIOS and video drivers from DELL website.  I
have the power options all disabled.

Any ideas?


5.Dell Inspiron E1505 -Ctrl Key down results in loss of po

Sorry to hear about your problem -- the E1505 is one of the best
laptops on the market today. 

This reads like an electrical short caused by depressing the left Ctrl
key. This could indicate improper assembly, where a critical cable
interferes with the keyboard.
