Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop Jet Black (15.4" Wide Screen with true life, built-in Webcam, Intel Pentiu... PC Notebook

1 Answer

I had my Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop running. The battery was running down so I plugged the power pack into the electrical outlet first and then into the laptop. The screen went blank and I have not been able to get the laptop to come back on. Is there anything that can be done? Thanks.

Which ever way round you plugged in should not have resulted in what happened.
You should have a green light on the adaptors case when plugged into the mains weather it's plugged into the laptop or not, if not check the plug fuse.
Is it the correct adaptor for the Laptop? TO CHECK look at the underside of the adaptor the output voltage and amps should be the same as on the base of the Laptop.
Hold the power button down for longer than 5 seconds to ensure the Laptop is off.
Remove the battery and try with just the adaptor plugged in ONLY if its the same output voltage as the laptop.
Remove the memory stick and replace then try and boot again this can sometimes reset the computer.
Leave the adaptor plugged in with the Laptop off to try and put some power in the battery and then try with just the battery.
I have a feeling the adaptor is faulty and it was coincidental that the laptop switched off as you plugged it in, I think you just ran out of battery power.
If in doubt get an electrical shop to test the adaptors output.

Dell inspiron 1520 won't turn on.


Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.


Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).


Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.


Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.


Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.


hope this helps

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

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.
