Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop
The best and cheapest solution is probably for you to purchase one of the aftermarket batteries you have been researching. While they may be physically compatible, original Dell components are often designed to identify themselves, and they tend to resist being mixed-and-matched. Aftermarket manufacturers have developed strategies to avoid the authentication process.
Before you give up, though, be sure to try this trick: simultaneously press Fn and either F2 or F3 (which ever one has the battery icon printed on it). If you've unwittingly pressed this combination, you may have disabled the charging process. Try it with BOTH batteries--the battery that originally shipped with the Inspiron 6400 may not be dead after all!
