Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook ?

My laptop only works with the adapter pluged into it.it will not charge ! do i need a new battery or new adapter?

Answers :

Usually this means that a new battery is in order, but I have seen cases where there were internal connection problems and the laptop would no longer be able to charge the battery.

If the laptop is a newer one alot of the time you can check out the status of the battery through the bios or through the OS. Like in windows xp you can go into the power options on the control panel and then check out the power meter tab. If it can see the battery with the power meter at 100% I would definetly try a new battery. If it cannot see a battery installed you might have a dead battery or a bigger issue with your laptop.

Here are some other options that you could try also:
If you know someone with the same model laptop you could try switching batteries and see if that helps, or if you have a store nearby you where they specialize in batteries see if they can test it. Worst case if none of these is an option for you you could just try a new battery.

Let me know what happens, or if you need further assistance.
Sad to say your batteries are gone. You will need to buy a new battery. If your brave you can try the laptop battery hack at http://www.kipkay.com/content/blogsection/19/55/
