    Why was the computer not used? Had it died, or had the need gone away? Exactly what happens when you plug it in, with no battery installed, noises, lights, anything and everything. TRhe screen might be showing information but not so it easily shows; you might see it by shining a flashlight on the screen. Does the battery charger get warm, does the battery itself get warm? do any fans come on? All this is clues to help find the problem.

In this case, it is either the Power button switch is not totally engage or there something wrong on your Inspiron motherboard. My best advise is to call DELL technical support for assistance. Better if your computer is still under warranty so that they can replace the part/s for free that you need to wait for 2-3 days. Someone will come over into your place to install the part/s. Thank you.

My laptop is not charging

Does the charge led on the laptop come on? If not then check the internal fuse on the charger or a broken wire. A voltmeter will tell you if the charger is producing power. If the led IS working, then the charging circuit on the motherboard is faulty

If you laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes then the problem could be a back light problem. This could be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link to determine the fault and possible fix :-

My laptop is dell inspiron 1501 but no work keybord and battery charging but supply line(AC adaptor) is ok.

Hello there. The Inspiron 1510 was released almost 5 years ago. If your system is more than 2 years old, then perhaps you will have to replace the battery. Battery for the most part, will only last 1 to 2 years. As for the battery, try connecting an external USB keyboard. If its working, then you need to replace the laptop's keyboard. Hope this will help.

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.
