Dell inspiron 5720 "Your battery is temporarily disabled"

This question is not answered

II bought my laptop 2 months ago and one day when I turn a message appears that says "Your battery is temporarily disabled. Please turn off your computer and try again When the unit is back to the operational temperature".
And just let me choose 2 options to continue or enter the bios.
I update the bios to the latest version and change my battery, nothing has solved my problem. when I unplug the AC adapter, the computer shuts down. Is a Dell inspiron 5720 with windows 8 64bits. Help me please.

  • Hi Euri,

    Please send me a private message with the computer's service tag, Name registered during the system purchase and email address so that I can check what can be done. To send a private message, click on my name and select start conversation.

  • Why I have to give you my service tag?

  • Are you able to get into the computer? Like does it start up or does it stop you at the boot menu?

  • I'm able to get into the computer.

  • Hi Euri,

    Service tag was requested for checking the type warranty and assist you further. We will have to check the status of the adapter in BIOS; if the adapter is not detected properly the system will continue to receive power but will not charge the battery. Please follow the steps mentioned below to check if the adapter is detected properly.

    1. Start the computer by pressing the power button
    2. Press the F2 key 2-3 times
    3. You will now be on the BIOS screen
    4. Under the Main Tab look for the option that says AC Adapter Type
    5. If the Adapter Type says Unknown or None with the adapter plugged in.
    6. Also, Select Advanced tab and check for ‘Battery Health’.

  • my Service Tag is <Admin Note: removed per privacy policy~RK>

  • My AC adapter type is 90W. The battery health: this battery is temporarily disabeled, please turn off the computer, reset the AC adapter and try again when the unit is back to operational temperature.

  • i also have the same problem, I've bought a new battery and new ac adaptor and same problem, have u managed to fix urs, if so please help. Ty


  • This is an ongoing problem with Dell laptops. There are numerous complaints about  this all over the web. Many users describe it as battery not charging, but upon further reading it is actually the same problem. Unfortunately DELL refuses to actually address the problem. They have you replace the battery or the adapter or the motherboard , update the BIOS - almost anything and everything except admit the have a problem. I and many others have done ALL of the above and still have the problem. I wish I could tell you how to fix it - but if I could then I could fix my own DELL XPS 15Z and help others with the same problem.  If you continue to check the battery health you will probably find that every few days it will decrease by 1%. 
    One last note - consider yourself lucky - many of us with this problem first experienced it very shortly after the warranty expired!

  • Same problem here too 
    17 R -  5720, just after 2 month of warrenty over i got this message and really in trouble.

  • Same issue - I also have a Dell 17R 5720, 3 months after the 1 year warranty ended the problem started. Tried all the online suggestions and even ordered a new battery but that didn't work, waiting for the UPS guy right now to pickup the battery I am returning.
  • I have a Dell 17R 5737 that is recently out of warrantee and I now get a message "Battery is temporarily disabled, etc."  The battery checks out fine but the computer won't work off the battery.  I've looked at the various posts and tried it all.  None of the posts I've seen say they actually fixed the problem. Now I'm wondering if this is a fatal flaw in the system!!???!   .

  • This happened to me too.  I have an Inspiron 5720 that won't work on battery.  Tried everything including buying a new battery.  When I look at the pre-boot system assessment (hold down the orange colored Fn key during boot-up) the battery charge is 64 and battery health is 87.  The battery current flow is 0 mA. The battery charging state says idle and the charge cycles is 45.

    This is very frustrating.

  • I raise this issue 1year back, dint got any solution.

    Only solution is "goto any Laptop repair center they will replace power IC in laptop "

    17R of DELL is worst laptop in this regard.
    I suggest dont buy anything from DELL, i am also suggesting other brands over dell to all my friends.

  • I've also got this problem and have been running it on AC for a while as I search for a solution.  My dell is recently out of warrantee and Dell tech has been no help at all.  Their solution doesn't fix anything and they seem to be avoiding the issue.  In reading other's posts, people have replaced the BIOS, the motherboard, battery, AC adapter as suggested with no results.  I'm also hearing that it's a fatal defect and that's not what I want to hear.  Has anyone heard that replacing the Power IC actually fixes the problem?  The next step in solving this is to buy an Apple and throw this Dell out of an upper story window.
