if that is the case, then there is indeed a short on the ac port (thats where you plug in the charger.) that's the reason why the charger light goes off as soon as you plug it in to the back of the computer. I know its gonna cost you a lot since the only way if fixing this is to replace the motherboard. if its gonna cost you $500 + then better buy a new one. they're gonna replace it with a refurbished motherboard anyways.

Hope this helps.

A) You don't want to take the laptop apart.

B) You don't have the money to have it repaired.

C) Keep going like you are with fiddling with it, and you'll smoke the AC adapter (Charger), and Power MOSFET's on the motherboard.

What !O_O! sort of 'miracle cure' are you expecting?

If you wish to correctly repair the laptop, this is the place.

Rig it so it works temporarily, and maybe permanently damages it?

Suggest go to another website.

Charger Board

You're going to need one of these, and connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source,

Doesn't have to be from that store. It's just an example.
Average cost is $3 to $6.

Will Not charge with brand new a/ power cord it will at times power on if moved the right way but quickly powers off if moved the port inside looks to be fine But I hear there is a pin type thing inside...

The problem is with the AC adapter itself and is a very common problem with Dell AC adapters. My suggestion would be to get an aftermarket AC adapter that can be purchased on eBay as the Dell adapter is around 100.00. You can pick up an aftermarket one on eBay for around 20.00. The problem is a resistor inside the AC adapter that senses when a Dell branded adapter is inserted. What happens is that the resistor will get damaged and since it doesn't recognize the charger as a Dell branded one anymore it won't charge. However it will still run the laptop as long as it's connected. A lot of aftermarket AC adapters bypass this function and work perfectly fine.

Battery will not hold charge new battery lasted 1 month and shorts out the charger

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

Laptop will not turn on when i press the on

Normally, if the LCDs light momentarily and go off, then the system is not getting power from the AC adapter (Even if the light is on on the brick)
  1. If another Dell D-Series AC adapter is available, try it. if not check the output for the plug to the system for 19 volts DC, if no voltage, replace the adapter.
  2. Check the connection on the system for cracks or loose connection to the motherboard. If the connector is damaged, then the jack or the motherboard will need replacement
  3. If the system will not power on with a known good battery or AC adapter, then try these steps.
