The most likely prolem here is that the connections at hte power jack have loosened. This should be repaired ASAP as the problem will continue to worsen. This can be easily be fixed by a qualified tech. It will take longer to gain access to the jack area that it will to resolder the connections. Please have this repaired. If the jack is physically broken, it can be replaced for less than $10.

Battery light blinking orange once, then green twice


LOL, It means whoever sold you that Power Cord probably sold you one with the interchangeable end that can plug into any laptop. If it's not the interchangeable end type, they sold you one that is not compatible with your laptop. Get rid of it in a hurry before it burn out your motherboard. You my friend need to get on ebay and purchase a power cord designed specifically just for an Dell Inspiron 1525. All you need to search for on ebay is Dell Inspiron 1525 AC Adapter. They probably cost less than $10

My lapyop automatically switched off when battery got drained .When I tried to restart it ,it is not functioning..There is no light signal and no response for button pressing......


It appears that the AC adapter is not powering the system. If you know anyone with a later model Dell, the AC adapters are inter-changable (If the plug fits, you can use it) If the system powers on, the you need a new (Dell Branded) ac adapter as non-Dell adapters will not charge the battery.
If the DC in jack of the chassis is loose or the LED on the AC adapter goes out when plugged in to the system, then you may have a bad motherboard.

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

Does it mean that my battery on the Dell Inspiron 1525 is out if it won't charge anymore. It also won't work when the battery is removed and the AC adapter is plugged in


It's not the battery than. If you ask me - two possible problems:
1) The AC adapter is shot to hell and you need to replace it
2) The motherboard input plug is damaged and you need to service it.

Further diagnosis:
Test the AC adapters output plug with a voltage meter (if there is nothing than that's the problem, if you get a positive reading - its fault nr 2)

You can also try to borrow a AC adapter of a friend (only if it's the same model) and plug it in.

Best of luck.

Dell Inspiron will not work on Battery.


At the very minimum its your battery. The other side is that it could be your power utility inside your laptop. Lets try getting a new battery first.

Note: Try a different AC outlet first.
