So its been a week since ive touched my laptop(dell inspiron 5437). Last nigti tried to turn it on, but i think the laptop ran out of battery so i plugged in the charger/adapter. But, when i turned on the charger, the charger socket in the laptop made a rapid clicking noise. The power brick green light is on as normal though. Anyone got a solution?

Thanks in advance

Welcome,

Did you try to boot it with the AC plugged in and the battery removed? Also, how old is the system and is the battery the same age or has it been replaced?

Thanks

 

Dick

I tried to boot with the ac plugged in and the battery removed, but it didnt work and the socket was still clicking. I bought the system like about a year ago and i havent replace anything so the battery is still the stock.

Mat,

I really don't like that clicking sound. There are so many possible causes. If it's still under warranty you might contact Dell tech support and see if they can walk you through a diagnostic to determine the problem. I've had good luck with them in the past. 

Keep us posted
