It sounds like you have a bad battery in your laptop. If your laptop is several years old you will probably need to replace the battery. I've seen many cases where the laptop will work when plugged into AC power, but not with battery only. Batteries Plus is a good place to find them and they will properly dispose of your old battery also. Don't throw the old one in the trash - please dispose of it properly - Save the Planet! Hope this helps.

When I plug in my Dell Inspiron 1521 laptop, I get an error message saying it does not recognize my charger, will not charge and will likely slow down my computer's speed/performance. Everything...


Same topic on Dell official community, may it will help.
http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/7311465.aspx

There is high possibility that your adapter is stuffed. Dell have built in a recognition circuitry into the 65w adapters and when that goes, the system will no longer recognize it as a 65w adapter even though it is still putting out 65w. The system then shuts off the battery recharge circuit and to make matters worse it won't even charge the battery when the computer is off. It also speedsteps the processor down to half its speed so everything runs slower. Only option is to stick with a slow computer that can't be used on batteries or buy another ac adapter.

If you do not want to pay $80 for a original adapter directly from dell, there is an alternative choice to get an 3rd party charger, check this link below:

When I plug the charger into my Dell Inspiron 1521 laptop, it gives me an error message saying it does not recognize the charger. The charger is only two months old and was working fine just last night. ...


First thing to try would be the work mate's charger again to see if it still charges. If it does? That rules out any issue with the battery.
Next, I would clear the cmos.
To do this? slide the battery out using the 2 slide pins. Unscrew the memory door, then unplug the cmos battery held within. Replace after a couple of minutes.

Now try your charger again.

Charger light is on battery wont charge dell inspiron 1521


Your battery could have given up.
Check the voltage coming out of the transformer. You should have 18-19 volts.
Either that or your motherboard charging circuit could have quit.

When i plug in power charger, it says the computer doesnt recognize charger, and the computer wont charge. I have to plug it in a few times, then the battery will charge


Hello.

The most common reasons are the power adapter/cord and power jack.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.
The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

My laptop wont charge


Sounds like to me you may have a bad battery. I would do a search for your model number for a battery. It is showing being plug in that means your charger is working, but your battery not taking no charge.

Plugged in, not charging inspiron 1521


Hi,
 
This is a known issue with the AC adapter. If you are under warranty Dell would replace the AC adapter which will fix the issue. If not you may need to purchase one. Also do make sure you have the latest BIOS update on the laptop.
 
Latest BIOS
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R178138&SystemID=INS_PNT_PM_1521&servicetag=&os=WLH&osl=en&deviceid=13136&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=3&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=1&fileid=242484
Before updating the BIOS make sure you unplug all the USB devices and restart the computer once, and only then start the BIOS update.
 
Hope this helps. Please rate your feedback!
Thanks,
VJ
