Default Battery dead and AC adapter doesn't work - 08-19-2009, 06:32 PM

Hey guys, I've read through the 'my battery doesn't charge' threads, but it seems like I have a different problem. I am having problems with the battery not charging, but the mini doesn't even run with the AC adapter plugged in. I bought a new AC adapter thinking mine was dead, but it still doesn't turn on. If I take out the battery and put it back in, one of the lights(the circle one) will come on for about 3 seconds, and then turn off. Sometimes if I wait a while, I can take out the battery, reinstall it, and it'll make it to the windows startup screen before it turns off. I tried the fn+B method in one of the battery threads(don't know if it applies to my situation, but I tried it anyway) and it turns off before I can even get into the bios. From reading the other battery threads, it sounds like everyone else can still use their AC adapter to run their mini, but mine seems to be dead, too. Any suggestions?

If you bought a new adapter and it still doesn't work, that strongly suggests a problem in the Mini itself. Call Dell and get it replaced or repaired.
