There could be a few reasons for this.
The first is the version of bios. Newer versions only charge the battery when powered off but plugged into the mains.
There could be a problem with one of the legs that make contact with the battery connections when the battery is installed.
Another common problem is the old battery was so exhausted it damaged the charging circuit inside.

Batteries do not last forever and are know to fail on a regular basis
if your new battery does the same thing , take the laptop in for a diagnosis of the problem

I have a dell inspiron 1525 the battery light was blinking orange and wouldnt come on so listening to an expert i bought a new battery when you first plug it in should the light still be orange??


Hi. Blinking orange light on battery indicator means it's charging. To make sure, point your mouse to the battery icon on the Taskbar located on the lower right-hand corner of your screen...near the system time and speaker icons. It should say plugged in, charging. If you see "plugged in, not charging, then you need to call Dell Phone Support for additional help.

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

Dell Won't Regonize New Dell Battery


Hi
Need more info

We are talking about the main battery / not cmos battery?
Does charger lamp illuminate?
If so ensure plugs are securely pressed in to Laptop and charger.
If charger lamp does NOT light up try a different wall plug.
Surely Dell would have tested that battery and charging before returning.

I have a dell inspiron 1525 and it wont charge


Hi,


If possible could you check output voltage of the charger with a multimeter? If you can get output voltage, then might be something wrong with laptop battery charging circuit. Contact Laptop Repairing Engineer.

Dell inspiron 1525 won't charge


The battery has most likely been "Over charged". Most rechargeable batteries can only be charged around 500-1000 times depending on the brand of your computer. I would recommend buying a new one.
