    I am on my 3rd power cord for my laptop. If I can find the correct position to hold the connection in then I can get the battery to charge and it will hold the charge but i have to watch constantly to see if the battery is charging or if the laptop is running on the battery ( with the powercord attached )

If the power connection is loose on the motherboard then you will either need to get the connector replaced (Many places advertize replacing the jack for around $100) or replace the motherboard. (Also around $100)

Won't Charge


If it's not a recognized charger it'll stop charging the battery and try to run on the charger alone. If the peak draw of the laptop is higher than the charger output, it'll go right back off.
Try removing the battery and see if it'll boot on the charger alone.

I've recently bought a new charger for my dell inspiron 1525. The green light still shines when its plugged in, but it doesnt appear to be charging the laptop itself. Before, i would have put it down...


enter the bios with F12 and battery status somewhere, you have to see if the battery is charging.
1 - if you do not recharge the battery, you can try a new battery if the battery schimnabata no (new) option 2 then it does not load.
2 - is necessary to change the motherboard, because the battery charging mode does not function normally.
warranty if you go to them to do.

Bettery can't charge


you may have the wrong type of charge, your port where your charge cord go in may be loose or not connected correctly anymore.

You also may want to check into buying a new battery for that laptop. Depending on how old it is it may of died after alot of use.

I'd test it using those two ideas first. If that doesnt work contact the maker of the laptop.

New battery will not charge on inspiration 6000 works fine when plugged in?


a hundred to 1 your chrger is ****. Though it will still keep it powered on....it doesnt have enough connection to give it a full charge. I had this same laptop and with the same problem. go to ebay and buy a new charger for 15 bucks and your problem is solved. In the future always try the charger first ...they are always cheaper than a new battery!

Charging problem - battery?


Try an Antec charger with an adjustable votage output. I tried a new battery, charger, BIOS udate, etc, etc, etc. After fighting it for about 2 months, I found the Antec at Best Buy. Took it home, plugged it in, slid the adjuster up till the "charge" light came on. Been working fine for about 6 months.

Laptop Battery won't charge


The chances of getting two bad batteries is slim, so we'll have to assume it's not the battery. I suggest you flash your bios if that has not been done recently.

You can download and install the newest from support.dell.com
