Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook
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
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.
