Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop
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
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.

Does your laptop turn on when it is plugged to the charger? If it does you may have to replace your batteries. If it doesn't your charger might be broken.
