SOURCE: AC adapter not recognized

The AC adapter has a small wire in the center of the connector to the system. This sensing wire, if bent or broken will cause the error you mention.

Check the inside of the connector, since it is new, you can call Dell 800-624-9896 for a replacement adapter.

SOURCE: AC adapter not recognized--battery will not charge.

there's only 2 possible issue with this problem and 2 solution.

Solution 1 update the BIOS.

(for DELL system's it will require that the battery still has at least 10% charge meaning that this solution is not going to be possible unless you have another battery that is currently charged. if so go here ) the BIOS version there is A16, if you have a different version you can update it.

Solution 2 replace the motherboard

if the problem still persist after going thru solution 1 there's only one step you need to take, you'll have to replace the motherboard for this type of problem. I hope you still have warranty for this computer, you can either have it shipped at the DEPOT or have an onsite come out to replace it.

hope that helps.

hit me back on the results.

SOURCE: dell inspiron 1525 ac adapter

This is a common problem. The issue is almost certainly a faulty power board, a small PCB that accepts the power input and also holds two USB sockets – located on the top left side of the PC near the screen.
If your machine is in warranty the solution is a Dell repair/replacement.
If out of warranty then you will need to replace the component, or have someone do it for you.
The procedure involves buying a new power board, (Part number 48.4W006.021, available from Dell or more cheaply on Ebay at about £35), and replacing the old component. This is a task you should only undertake if you are comfortable with disassembling your laptop right down to removal of the system board. Instructions can be found in the Dell Service Manual at
http://support.euro.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1526/en/SM/index.htm
This is not difficult if you are competent at this type of repair, but I would not recommend it for someone that has not taken a laptop apart before.

try running ur laptop using the adaptor without the battery in it's place and run it with just the battery...note the difference....it may be a power surge/short issue....some times the battery is supplying power along with the adaptor to the notebook and the power circuit in there is not able to take dual power....check your power options setting in Control Panel...

My Dell Inspiron 1525 is now around 4 years old and recently it has not been able to charge and only works when it is plugged in. Also when i start the laptop, it displays a message saying i need to...


As you say the system is 4 years old update the bios
your download link is here!
IMP. Be sure to plug in the battery and it should be charges above 10 % and the system should be connected to the mains power supply also ensure there will not be a power outage during the update process
this will resolve the issue 100 %
Dont forget to say thanks!

1525 dell battery not charging.


this could be one of 3 things.

Bad battery
Bad AC power adapter
Bad internal power jack (where the plug goes into the laptop)

The easiest thing to do is to try and use your laptop with the ac power adapter plugged in and no battery. This should work but if it doesnt then you know it probably is your ac power adapter. But if you feel like you have to wiggle and hold the cord in then it may be the jack on the inside. The only way I know how to fix that is to take it apart and resoder the joint holding that part together to make a stronger electrical connection.

As for the battery if you let it sit out for a day it will discharge any current it currently has inside of it and then you can try again to charge it. If that doesnt work and your cord and jack seem fine then you will need to look for a new battery to replace the one that died. This happens over a couple of years as the battery life shortens over the life of the laptop and more so if you use it heavily.

My dell insprion laptop 1525 will not turn on at all. even with the ac adapter, i know it is charged. turned on for like a min, then the screen went white and it turned off.


Try the following:
1. Remove the battery and plug in the AC adapter
2. Try to check if its working

Alternative:
If its still does not work:
1. Try to check if the LED indicator of your AC Adapter is lit
If its lit - the AC adapater is just fine
If its not - the AC adapater needs to be replaced

If all fails - you need to change the motherboard of your laptop - you might have a blown fuse or a power supply error

Thanks. Cheers!

Plugged in not charging on Dell Inspiron 1525


your answer to your problem lies here.

http://www.howtomendit.com/answers.php?id=141277


If you have the battery at a low level and it's not charging then i think i might have worked out what might be the problem:

First flash the BIOS to Revision A17 (or later if available)
Then power off and turn on the laptop with AC adaptor plugged in, hit F2 to go into BIOS and go to Battery Info.

If you can see 'AC Adapter 65w' at the bottom then there shouldn't be anything wrong with your power supply or the laptop. If it says 'Unknown' then there's a problem with your motherboard or the AC adapter.

Not charging


which green light?

light from the ac power adapter or the light from the battery?

if ac power adapter you are referring to try a diff power wall socket if ac power adapter still off then replace ac power adapter alone.

if battery light is off but the laptop works fine with ac adapter alone try updating the laptop BIOS.

if ac adapter light turns off when it plug to the laptop replace motherboard.

Battery is not charging properly ....?


Have you checked the bios battery status and bios version? first check if battery has charge if yes then update the bios. also try to remove batt and use ac adapter alone and check if laptop has sufficient power. try connecting ac adapter to a diff wall socket. if laptop works fine with ac adapter alone then batt might has problem.
