Might be a driver glitch. Try uninstalling the drivers for the touch pad, some times refered to as synaptic pointing device, from the devic manager, then plug the power supply in and reboot. The machine will find the touch pad, and reinstall the drivers. Try this and let me know.

It turns on for a few seconds then shuts off


Hi,
Since you have already replaced the ac adapter. The problem is still there. the most likely cause of the failure is bad motherboard. Remove the battery from the laptop and disconnect the ac adapter . Press the power button for 10 seconds. Reconnect the ac adapter and try powering on the system. If the same doesnot work

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 5150 do not come on when the power button pressed


If you remove the battery and disconnect power cord, then hold power button for 20 seconds, then reconnect power cord but do not re-insert battery, and the unit powers on okay, the problem may be your battery. If there is still an intermittent problem, the power connector inside the unit may be loose and need re-soldering, or you could have a bad power supply.

Laptop freeze when in ac charger


You really should have a cheap multimeter to help in this case.
There are three possible failures; the new battery pack has a shorted cell, the charger is defective or a regulator internal to the laptop is failing.
With meter, you can check two of the three areas; the battery pack and the charger. Depending on which kind of batteries are used in the pack, if it is charged, you can determine if it is completely functional by checking contacts on the case of the pack. The most common type of battery used is the nickle-metal hydride type (NiMH) which has a nominal voltage of ~1.2 volts.  If the pack is rated 6 volts, you could measure either 4.8, 6 or 7.2 volts with the last one the most likely. If it measures 4.8 or 6 volts, it probably has one or two cells shorted, making it useless.
The charger could measure all over the map; many of them are unregulated and if they are rated at (for example) 9 volts, they could easily put out 14-20 volts when they do not have a load on them.
If those two items seem to check out OK, then the regulator in the system has gone bad. This might be on a separate board inside but to check it out, you really need some technical experience, otherwise you don't really know what you are seeing or looking for.

Can't charge battery or run off AC


You may have a problem in the DC charge circuitry. These parts are located on the moatherboard directly and can't be bought separately and repaired. You must send your Dell to a specialised service to have it fixed by them. Sorry, I can't see no other way for this problem to be solved.
