Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop ?

Plugged in but not charging

\015 "plugged in but not charging" Laptop will not charge but works fine plugged in. I had dell replace the motherboard once and that worked for a while but is doing the same thing. No other power adapters have been used. Only the one provided by dell. No more warrenty either. Am I S.O.L or what?\015

Answers :

Try removeing the battery, fire up the unit and while running, install battery.
\015\012If that does not work, have you checked out the battery.??
Very carefully clean the metal contacts on the battery and the place it plugs in with a pencil eraser, get them all shiny and see if that makes it charge. you can also right click the desktop and goto screen saver then power and see if windows knows if there is a battery plugged in. If i cannot see the battery then it wont charge it.

I have it set so that when it hibernates, it comes up where I left off...which does save time, still it's annoying. The next one is more complicated.
