Most laptops using cpu from the P4 type (or equivalent AMD) on require at least 95 watts. the P4 series of cpu were a bunch of power hungry little devils. But they have got better, 65Watts is fine with most netbooks though. Good luck.

When i m connecting ac adapter in dell inspiron 1525 it show u connect 65w or higher ac adapter laptop is working condition

Hi Maxinfotech Its a common problem for DELL laptops. Most of the time the cause of this a bad AC Adapter but sometimes a firmware reset for the motherboard is the fix. I recommend you try replacing the AC adapter first than try to reset the firmware which could cause a system malfunction sometimes when not done properly. Thanks for using Fixya

15vac is pretty normal for a laptop battery. Its likely that your laptops power inlet has malfunctioned and no longer is capable of recieving voltage. Besides, your power terminal should be getting 120vac, it's just your adaptor that reduces the voltage to 15-19 vac usuable for laptop batteries. Also your laptop computer is rather an older model, my mother has one and I've worked with it a while. Laptop batteries also don't last forever, It might be wise to move onto a better laptop.

Please rate my answer.

Not charging

Make sure you are using a 4.62A Power Supply (90watt) some of the knock-offs are only 65w (3.34 A). And you will never have enough current to charge the battery.

It will only run the laptop, but not charge.

The mobo sounds like it is good, if you had a power issue, you would have orange lights or blinking, and it would not come on at all with any power supply.
