Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

My dell laptop inspiron 1525, is just about 2 years old. About 4 weeks ago, I turned it on, and not lights came on, although the green light on the adapter was on. I was told by a technical assistant at Dell, to replace the adapter and battery. I now have a new adapter and battery, and I get the same results, no lights come on on the laptop. Could you please help me.

First, I would try to return the battery and adapter, call your credit card company.

If anything, you would have a problem with the AC adapter and not both. If the battery was dead, the AC would still work. So at most, you should have just purchased an AC unit. However, because there was a green light, you were still getting power.

Take out the Hard drive and any removable hardware just to make sure they are not causing a short in the system.

If you do not see any display lights on your notebook when it is plugged in, then you have a problem with the Main Board. The whole unit will need to be taken apart and replaced with a new board. Main Boards usually run at a minimum of $180.00 on exchange plus labor.

My suggestion is to contact dell and ask them what it would cost for a repair or an upgrade. If you send the unit in, take out the Hard Drive to keep your data.

Thanks Adi

Please respond if you have more questions.

I have a Dell inspirion 1525 which is less than 2 years old however it will not power up, there are no lights on the laptop and no power going in. The charger has a green light on when plugged in but...


Start taking your laptop apart piece by piece and test it after each removed component:
1. Remove the hard drive and test the laptop.
2. Remove the DVD drive and test the laptop.
3. Remove the wireless card and test the laptop.
4. Unplug the display panel from the motherboard/video card and test the laptop.
etc....
Continue taking it apart until you have only three major components connected: motherboard (with video card), processor, and memory. If you still experience the same problem, most likely it's bad motherboard.
By the way, before you start, try reconnecting the memory module. If you have two modules installed, try removing them one by one and test the laptop with each one separately.

Dell inspiron 1525 won't turn on


Try to take out the battery and just use the adapter to power it on,
If your done with that then try just using the battery to turn it on, if it still won't give a single light.
If you can borrow an ac adapter for that laptop try it ,
If it still doesn't work. You'll need to replace the motherboard. Just make sure the ac adapter your gonna use is working good.

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.
