Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop ?

Does it mean that my battery on the Dell Inspiron 1525 is out if it won't charge anymore. It also won't work when the battery is removed and the AC adapter is plugged in

Answers :

It's not the battery than. If you ask me - two possible problems:
1) The AC adapter is shot to hell and you need to replace it
2) The motherboard input plug is damaged and you need to service it.

Further diagnosis:
Test the AC adapters output plug with a voltage meter (if there is nothing than that's the problem, if you get a positive reading - its fault nr 2)

You can also try to borrow a AC adapter of a friend (only if it's the same model) and plug it in.

Best of luck.
