Re: problem of charging the battery
Check battery indicator. If OK, update BIOS. If no change, check battery bios info, if AC Adapter is incorrect, replaces it. Please comment if the information provided has been helpful for the improvement of my support assistance. Thank you and regards.

Try the following steps to solve it: it of googling on the web and finally found the solution here.1 Turn off laptop.2 Unplug AC power.3 Remove battery.4 Replace AC power.5 Turn on laptop, allow OS to boot.6 Once logged in to the machine, perform a normal shut down.7 Unplug AC power.8 Replace battery.9 Replace AC power.10 Turn on laptop, allow OS to boot. The battery should once again be charging as normal.If it can't still resolve this problem, try a new laptop charger or repair your laptop dc jack.
If you plan to be on a budget for your dell 1525, you may try the following third party charger:
1. remove all external peripherals
2. try to use ac adapter alone check if laptop will power on.
3. put back batt in with ac adapter.
4. check bios (power on laptop keep tap on F2)
5. check for the bios version, battery info and battery health.
6. check if batt is 0% or 10% charge
7. check battery health and info if the ac adapter is determine or not. also check if batt is performing normally.
8. if batt has 10% charge then download the latest bios for your system. download it from support.dell.com
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.
If the laptop will run from the adaptor, then the adaptor is probably fine. That being the case, if the charge light flashes when the adaptor is plugged in, the battery is faulty. No charge light on an otherwise working system is probably the battery charging circuit in the laptop.
Normally the battery light will rapidly flash orange if the battery is defective. It will alternate between orange and green if it is too hot to charge. Or it will either flash orange or be a steady orange if the battery is low or completely discharged. Based on this and the fact that you cannot get it to stay on for more than 7 seconds, I would have to say that you need to recharge the battery by plugging the laptop into an AC outlet. After all, it can't run without the juice.
Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not, Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not, Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.
Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.
