There are some troubleshooting steps for this sort of problem:
laptop plugged in not charging:

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure your dell inspiron 1545 power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: dell inspiron 1526 has problem (plugged in ,not

Hello there:
First you will want to ensure that the power cord is fully inserted at both the laptop and all the connections for the cord and that it is getting proper power. and check tosee that the connector thatthe power cord goes into is not loose if so this will have to be repaired
next remove the battery from the computer and unplug the power cord and then press in the power button for 1 minute than if this has a reset button on the back use a toothpick or a small item and pressin on the reset button for 30 seconds
now insert the power cord (NOT THE BATTERY YET)
and turn on the computer and it should now start up if so insert the battery and leave charge for 1 hour than you should be ok from here ok
Please keep me posted on this so i can assist you if needed.
Best regards michael

SOURCE: inspiron 1420 dell says plugged in not charging

Check power adapter’s DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

SOURCE: MY DELL INSPIRON 1420 WHEN I PLUG IN BUT NOT CHARGING HOW TO FIX IT.

Hello, you may find this to be the fault of the charger itself. Dell chargers have a micro thin communication wire that tells the battery to chage and when to stop charging. But this tiny communication wire within the charging cable is very fragile. If it breaks inside, then the laptop battery will not recieve the signal to make it charge. Replacing the laptop charger may be your solution. But it will need to be another Dell charger compatible with your laptop

I have a dell inspiron 1525 the battery light was blinking orange and wouldnt come on so listening to an expert i bought a new battery when you first plug it in should the light still be orange??


Hi. Blinking orange light on battery indicator means it's charging. To make sure, point your mouse to the battery icon on the Taskbar located on the lower right-hand corner of your screen...near the system time and speaker icons. It should say plugged in, charging. If you see "plugged in, not charging, then you need to call Dell Phone Support for additional help.

Dell Inspiron 6000 won't charge


Since you have already replaced the battery and the laptop works with the AC charger, then probably the charge circuit in the system board (mother board) is bad. I have rarely seen an AC charger that will power the laptop but not charge the battery. 99% of the time, if it is not the battery, it is the system board.

HI, Im BALAJI having DELL 1525 INSPIRON. My battery is not charging, it says PLUGGED IN NOT CHARGING. How to solve this issue.?


Replace the battery. If it shows that your are on A/C power and the battery is not charging then replace the battery. It is not holding a charge.

Leaving your laptop plugged in all the time will kill a battery quickly. You need to let the battery get very low then charge it to keep the battery fresh.

Dell inspiron 1525 won't charge


The battery has most likely been "Over charged". Most rechargeable batteries can only be charged around 500-1000 times depending on the brand of your computer. I would recommend buying a new one.

PLz tell me about the model no.is it inspiron 1521 or 1501,From the problem u hav stated it seems that the battery is not getting charged.The computer is only running when the adapter is plugged in.
2 reasons:-
