Someone gave me a Dell Latitude D630
It works OK except the battery will not charge.
The power adapter is non-OEM but of the right voltage and current.
On boot-up I get the message that it cannot determine the adapter and
the unit will not be able to charge.
I searched some on-line forums and see that the only way to avoid that
problem is to actually get an OEM Dell adapter.
Though I can pick one up on eBay for under $20 I am trying to figure out
if there is a work around and how the BIOS can determine the adapter is
I can turn the warning message off in the BIOS but it still does not
allow it to charge.
