Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an Inspiron 1525 laptop. I replaced the AC adapter. After a while I noticed a burning smell from the adapter and on the bottom of the laptop. Did I damage the laptop or just the AC adapter? My laptop will not turn on after things have cooled using the AC adapter.

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

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

My Dell Inspiron 1525 has no power. Tried a different ac adapter, no help. Reseated the battery, hard drive and memory and still no power. Computer will not start.


Make sure that there is a green light on the ac adapter. Try checking the end of the cable of the ac adapter and see if it is damaged ( the metal piece that connects into the laptop ). Also check the port on the laptop where you connect the cable of the ac adapter. If that is damaged then you have to request replacment of the motherboard if your laptop is still in warranty.

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 Laptop - Inspiron 1525


Hi there.
I'm sorry to say but it sounds like there has been a massive power surge causing the motherboard to fry, there is no doubt that this has caused serious damage which is probably now beyond economical repair.
If you have any warranty on the laptop then i suggest you take advantage of that and send it in for repair, the only other options you have is pay Dell for the repair or purchase a new laptop.


Thanks for choosing FixYa!!
