Default Laptop won't start up..

Hello everyone,

I'm in desperate need of some assistance. My sister has a laptop (Dell Inspiron 1100) which won't start up. Previously, my sister has accidently broken the charing coard, but we are using a brand new one. My father figured maybe the battery died because the charger isn't charging it, so he boaught a new one.

I'm not sure if this is a problem or not, but the new battery seems to be more powerfull according to the back of it.

The old battery reads the following, TYPE U1223, Rating: 14.8V---4300mAH Capacity 65WH.

The new is TYPE 6T473, RatingL 14.8V---6450mAH Capacity 96WH.

I didn't order the battery, so I don't know if this is the correct one or not. My dad insures its the only one open to buy for her laptop.

So here is where it gets confusing...

When I try to start up the laptop with the old battery, nothing happens. When I put the new one in, the little battery icon flashes yellow 7 times then ends. The computer never starts up.

Does anyone have any ideas what might be wrong with my sisters laptop? Thanks!!

Sounds like it's the wrong kind of battery. Don't try using it again as you might be damaging the laptop, and call Dell to get it sorted.
