Dell Inspiron will not work on Battery.

My 11 month old Dell Insperon 1525 will not work on battery, it must be attached to the house AC. Looking at the battery check ikon it says "88% available (plugged in, not charging)" and then, below it says "Current power plan: Dell recommended". I am not a techy. HELP

    Same problem, my laptop is probably about year old now, but the battery doesn't charge. I can only use the computer when plugged in.

    I even bought a brand new battery for my Dell Inspiron 1525 (which is only 14 months old at this point!!!!), and when I installed the new (larger 9 cell battery, as opposed to my original 6 cell battery) the same "plugged in, not charging" thing comes up. BRAND NEW BATTERY, same problem!

    Thanks everyone. All the people who said it's the battery seem to have been right. I sent the computer, still under warranty, back to Dell and they fixed the "LCD Panel" (whatever that is) and sent me a new battery. The computer seems fine now.

    Thanks again,

It's 11 months old, call Dell technical support, they should send you a new AC adapter, most likely it's not the source of the problem, then they will replace the motherboard of your laptop. This is a very common problem with Dell Inspiron 1525, it's not the adapter, not the battery but the motherboard.

At the very minimum its your battery. The other side is that it could be your power utility inside your laptop. Lets try getting a new battery first.

Note: Try a different AC outlet first.

That is caused by your laptop motherboard. As the laptop cant understand your battery. Many dell notebook not only inspiron 1525 have this problem.

Advise you reset the bios or take the bios battery out for about 3 minutes then insert into it.

First is to try a known good battery. it could be the battery. if you can still use the laptop with the ac adapter then ac adapter proves to be fine. if a new battery does not fix the issue then problem could now be the motherboard.

The adapter is working correctly. The battery is either slow to charge or in need of replacement.

It's possible your battery isn't charging at all so to test this boot into bios -> battery status and watch it run overnight.

Dell 1525 won't run on ac but will on generic battery


Dell systems will not charge the battery without a Dell Branded AC adapter connected to the system (The BIOS looks for the adapter ID and disables the battery charger if not ID'd)
It appears, that since the system will not power on with either AC adapter, that there is a problem with the power connection of the system. You can replace the power board

if that fails to resolve next is the motherboard

AC adapter not recognized


If you don't get any errors when you startup on battery then all you have to do is call Dell. Get work order number and send them the laptop and adapter. They are very fast. I sent a laptop to them last month and I had it back in 3 days! I was surprised.
