Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop ?

"model number for the primary battery cannot be determined" DELL

\015 In response to another poster, Bvanjoff said:\015\012\015\012 "there is a small chip inside the charging system that will ensure that you will keep getting that message for as long as you try to use a non-Dell battery. As a matter of fact that same chip causes a lot of grief when it suddenly burns out and you start having problems with real Dell batteries."\015\012\015\012This is with the original dell battery, which is confirmed good, as is the charger.\015\012\015\012I tried to flash bios in an effort to fix, but winphlash can't write new bios. no explanation, just gets to the last step then tells me it can't.\015\012\015\012Not sure if these are related, but i'd sure like to use my battery again...if it's that chip, can it be replaced?\015\012\015\012On another forum i saw that a person with the identical problem bought (from dell, at their behest): a new battery, then charger, then MOTHERBOARD, and still has the problem!\015\012\015\012Quickset couldn't possibly be the culprit, could it?\015\012\015\012thanks in advance,\015\012 ken\015
