Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook ?

AC adapter not recognized--battery will not charge.

\015 When checking on battery performance, my Dell Inspiron 1525 reads "4% available (plugged in, not charging)" \015\012\015\012I have two identical chargers, and the laptop RUNS fine with either--but the battery will not charge. System setup reports the battery as healthy, but says that the adapter is unrecognized. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling both the battery and the adapter drivers. I've read that a Bios update may be what I need, however I can't do this because my battery level is under 10%. I have reseated the battery about 5 times, and rebooted the computer. Left the computer off a while, same thing. It absolutely will not charge the battery, not even temporarily.\015\012\015\012Any help is very appreciated!\015

Answers :

There's only 2 possible issue with this problem and 2 solution.
\015\012Solution 1 update the BIOS.
\015\012(for DELL system's it will require that the battery still has at least 10% charge meaning that this solution is not going to be possible unless you have another battery that is currently charged. if so go here ) the BIOS version there is A16, if you have a different version you can update it.
\015\012Solution 2 replace the motherboard
\015\012if the problem still persist after going thru solution 1 there's only one step you need to take, you'll have to replace the motherboard for this type of problem. I hope you still have warranty for this computer, you can either have it shipped at the DEPOT or have an onsite come out to replace it.
\015\012hope that helps.
\015\012hit me back on the results.
Your laptop charging problem cause:
\015\0121) charger centre pin does not work so that the laptop can not recognize the charger, you need change another one test it.
\015\0122) if the charge is not original product that could not be recognized by you laptop( fake charger)
\015\0123) if AC adapter ok, and change other same battery tested still not fixed,
\015\012that means your centre pin detect circiut on the motherboard fail,
\015\012need to check and to fix.

I own a 1 year old Dell Studio 1535. Its original battery died, so I purchased a generic one online. When I turned on the laptop with the battery only (not plugged in), it said battery not recognized,but still the laptop continued to run. The battery was only 47% full. When I plugged in the adapter to charge the battery, it said "Plugged in, but not charging." What should I do to get it to charge?

I have Dell Inspiron 1521 that is 2 years old (although it has only been used about 8 months total). I got an error about it not recognizing my ac adapter (the original ac adapter from Dell that it came with) & the battery wouldn't charge. Now the battery is dead. The light on the ac adapter is green even when plugged into the laptop. When ac is plugged in to the laptop the battery icon flashes blue. When I power the laptop up, the battery icon flashes red and I get the low battery warning.
