Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop

2 Answers

Problem with overheating.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 that I bought new 6 months ago. I have noticed from almost the start that it runs hot occasionally, but thought it was due to the cushion it was sitting on. I would try to keep it raised so that there was room for air circulation. More recently I have noticed that it runs hot pretty much all the time. Tonight I have been using it for about 4 hours and I don't recall the fan running one time. The only other piece of information that I have is that I do leave it plugged in pretty much all the time. It is only occasionally that I unplug it and use it mobilly. Does anyone have a solution or can walk me through the process of adjusting the fan?

Hi i have got dell 1525.
Recently i spilt a tea on my keyboard and it didnt work for about a month. Afterwards i replaced a keyboard which isn't working properly even with a new keyboard, and also the mouse area isn't working properly. Also my fan doesn't work either, and the laptop gets overheating, i can't work out what i should do either buy a fan or to buy a cooler? please help to find a solution to this problem as I don't know what to do and how to solve it. because the laptop is very good and it is a shame to loose laptop like this. many thanks
Vince

Hi Dear. Always Pick n Place notebooks very carefully. When need to pick with both hands you can pick it in any direction but when need to pick with single hand, always use vertical position, without pressing and forcing any area. Place it on any flat surface where you are sure that exhaust system of CPU's fan is well ventilated. Heating problem may occure due to many reasons. Verify CPU fan function in BIOS, Clean CPU cooling fan and exhaust system with Electric Blower. NEVER use continuous charging, plug out charger wire when battry is 100% full, charg again when low battry alerts. This will increase battry life & backup time.

My dell computer keeps shutting down every 5 min or so. I cleaned th fan and still the problem happens. I bought this almost 4 and a half years ago.


You may have cleaned the fan but have you cleaned the metal cooler (heat sink) under the fan? Its better to remove the fan from the heat sink and hoover it out, then refit the clean fan. Also hoover out the power supply vents too. Also make sure any case vents are clear too. If you think overheating is the problem then run the pc with the case open and if it runs ok then overheating is the problem.

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

Cooling fan Rattle


It should still be under warranty at 6 months old.
If you attempt to repair yourself, you will void the warranty.
Talk to Dell before you do anything.

My dell inspiron 1525 microphone does not record.


I have a Dell Inspiron 1525. I used Skype ages ago and returned to it a couple of days ago. No one could hear me. I researched for 20 hours, downloading drivers, checking EVERY setting possible and NOW have got the ANSWER. The wires in the Microphone Array are fatigued. My microphone works perfectly when I tilt my lcd screen half way down. Go to Webcam Manager, Tools, Audio controls, the microphone has 2 bars which go green when you talk into it. Tilt your screen and watch the bars go up and down. Not the answer you probably wanted but as long as you skype with your screen half tilted everything is good to go

Dell Inspiron 1525 - Firewire not working


It may be the communication setup.

You might need to set within the Camera PTP protocol.

The WD drive specs out a 6 pin connector, not a 4 pin.
