Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

Dell inspiron 1525 ac adapter not charging the battery. Have two of them and niether work on this computer. I have another computer that takes the same family of adapters and they both work fine on that one. have checked all the pins that connect it to the motherboard and it is fine. is there a ac adapter driver for vista that might be causeing this problem?


Answers :

This is a common problem. The issue is almost certainly a faulty power board, a small PCB that accepts the power input and also holds two USB sockets – located on the top left side of the PC near the screen.
\015\012If your machine is in warranty the solution is a Dell repair/replacement.
\015\012If out of warranty then you will need to replace the component, or have someone do it for you.
\015\012The procedure involves buying a new power board, (Part number 48.4W006.021, available from Dell or more cheaply on Ebay at about £35), and replacing the old component. This is a task you should only undertake if you are comfortable with disassembling your laptop right down to removal of the system board. Instructions can be found in the Dell Service Manual at

\015\012This is not difficult if you are competent at this type of repair, but I would not recommend it for someone that has not taken a laptop apart before.

Hi,
what you are telling me proves that the AC adapters are working fine, so there is something that is causing the issue at the laptop,

if your laptop is not charging when its in off state as well, then it signals that most likely you are having a hardware problem

call dell technical support they will replace the faulty hardware, let them know what you already have tried with the laptop to troubleshoot.
