Question about Computers & Internet
I have a dell inspiron 1521 and i have the charger plugged in but it wont charge the battery at all but powers the laptop and the battery is detected.wats wrong?
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.

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.
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
