Re: not powering up
Sounds like a problem with the charger or the battery on the laptop, if the battery is no good you should still be able to use it with it being pluged in, is there a led indicator on the adapter? if its not on try a fuse to start off with, after that id try a different power supply

Since it sounds like an issue with the Power first try to release flea power.Disconnect the charger,remove battery,press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.Reconnect the battery and charger.Turn on system and check if it turns on. For further help please check Dell Inspiron 1525 Manual. Also confirm if the light on the charger stays on,when connected to the system.
The batteries do go bad overtime and will no longer hold a charge but the laptop should still work as long as the power cord is connected. If it still does not work with the power cord connected then it is most likely the power cord, these can go bad, but make sure that the power is securely connected and that if it is plugged into a power strip that it has not been turned off, try another outlet just to rule it out as well.
All Dell laptops have a similar design flaw (in my opinion). The socket where the power cord plugs in to the laptop is probably loose. Use a toothpick or something to check it. Don't use anything metalic. If the socket moves easily then it has probably come loose from the motherboard. You may want to take the laptop to a computer repair shop to have the power socket soldered back to the motherboard. If you have the knowledge you can do this yourself but I don't suggest it. Laptops have a LOT of small parts. Hope this helps! Thanks!
Either the battery is faulty, or the charger is faulty. Check the fuse in the mains plug, or even the power point you are using could have a bad connection. Test using a lamp that you know works or a radio or something and try the charger in another outlet to find the fault.
There are dozens of possible root causes for your problem I guess.
But exactly the same happened to me in fact on a packard bell laptop. After my son forced it to reset, it didn't start again. Only one led was lit. After a long search I found that the battery had died and this prevented the laptop to start even when the power supply was plugged in.
Try this: remove the battery, connect it to the power supply and restart.
