Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop

2 Answers

My Dell Inspiron 1525 will not power up at all. The adapter works, however the battery is dead. The battery stopped charging about 6mos. after I purchased the unit. I did notice that where you plug the power adapter in at is loose. I don't know it it is pushed inside the computer too far or if it has just burnt out or whatever. I had this computer exactly 1yr and 1 day. (of course, 1 day past the expiration or the warranty). Thanks in advance for any answers.

I had the same problem... there can be a few reasons why... the adapter i had was at first able to charge the battery... for some reason it stopped charging the battery but was still able to keep the power on... i had a friend who also had a dell laptop and for some reason his adapter was able to charge my battery so it wasnt the battery... i called dell and they sent me another adapter and that was able to charge it...

    also sometimes it could be a motherboard failure.... which dell will happily replace if under warranty... when starting up your computer press F2 until you come to bios... check your battery info... if it says unknown adapter and battery is fine... then it prob is the motherboard...

Laptop Battery Won T Charge on a laptop dell inspiron 1525


Battery could be dead and won't hold another charge. Batteries only last for so long until you have to replace them. If you laptop is ok with the AC Adapter & Power Cord meaning it boots and allows you to work in windows, then the battery is definitely dead.

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

Hey i had my dell inspiron 1525 for quite a while and now the charger stopped working for some reason. i need help


The charging circuit requires an ac adapter with an intact sensing pin in the center of the Adapter barrel plug that connects to the computer. If the pin is bent or broken, the charger is disabled.
If possible, try a known good adapter from another D or E Series Dell Portable. If a KG adapter charges the battery, replace the adapter. If it makes no difference, then replace the motherboard

Plugged in not charging is what my inspiron 1525 is telling me and i dont know what to do to fix it. i cant unplugg it cuz it dies imediatly can you help me?


If your dc-adapter is a Dell original, that means your battery is dead and you need to replace it. However, if your adapter is a generic model, most Dells would work with one but will complain, although with a different phrase than yours. So, odds are it's the battery. No gimmick to fix that one other than getting a new one. Sorry.
