Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop

1 Answer

Battery/charger problem? i have a charger and its pretty screwed up at the top and makes this poppy noise whenever you bend it now im pretty sure that its not under warranty anymore since my g.gma got it last mother day last year and its just now breaking and now the little light at my laptop is blinking 4 times orange somewhat fast and then is slow when it tuns blue then goes fast again and when my little battery icon at my system tray it was at 100% which i know is a lie because it was dead this morning and right when i turned it on it said 100% which is kinda odd if you ask me unless the charger magically started working and charged it up of which i doubt because it wouldnt turn on until i could get the charger to work again do i just need a new charger or a new battery or both because now im scared to move the charger in fear that it wont work again which is kinda inconvienent because its on the bed and its up against the place where your pillow usually is so my back now has no support and it sucks :(

    the side that goes into the laptop if it was the side that went into the wall that jiggles and popped then i would leave that alone and buy another one out of fear of it catching on fire

    1) (to jiggle the top of the charger ) is this mean to jiggle ACadapter wire (but DC plug and socket are not shanke) or to jiggle DC jack then poppy noise appear?

Have a hoverround mpv 4,do you charge with the controller on or off,when on i get a buzzing noise loud im thinking you charge when the controller is off need help thank you

Typically you will charge with the controller off, but it is not critical. The buzzing noise may be the fan on the charger, which is normal. Make sure the silver handle of the charger is fully inserted into the controller. If the light on the charger is on, you have kept the charger connected for 8-12 hours and still the batteries will not charge, there may be a problem with the batteries being bad and they need to be replaced.

Frigidaire dryer makes a noise when it heats up

Maybe ya needs ta get in there and inspect the dryer.I am pretty sure you need to remove the top by getting the screws off the backside. Then you can remove the front and take a looksee
Remember the stack washer/dryer does not have the spring clips to pop the top (you have to remove screws from the back) Other than that basically all the innards are the same.

when you charge the battery make sure that its cable is is loosen from the motor coz it can damage your charging system. on your case you have damage it already that's your light dims whenever you rev the rpm up. so change your voltage regulator of your charging system, charge the battery and it is done easy.

I agree. I suggest you should go to a technician and try a new battery. If the new battery does not work you should speak to your manufacturer.
