Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop ?

My charge wil not charge the light were the charge get plug in will go on but my laptop will not, not eather the light that says its charging is off

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.430219a.jpg
Does your laptop turn on when it is plugged to the charger? If it does you may have to replace your batteries. If it doesn't your charger might be broken.
