I had the same problem I just updated the BIOS and now it's charging. Try this it worked for me. Download the update from Dell's website you need at least 10% charge on the battery for it to run after you download. Get your service tag # from the bottom of the laptop and plug into Dell download siteb to get pointed to the correct update.

Thanks for your advice ,i have replaced the charger and it seems to have done the trick.I have found out that had it not been the charger then it would have been a problem with the mother board.

I've been through 2 chargers, with my Dell Inspiron 1525, now once again my charger that I paid $85 for is not working. It's not that old, 6 months maybe. 5 did get it to work yesterday and managed to charge my battery to full powers. But today not so lucky. My lights on the front are always blue,, although he battery light is not on. Don't you think if more people have the same problem . . . .seems funny to me. Could it be a glitch in the chargers?

Dear Sir,

I think that there must be a problem with the charger,

I will advise you trying another charger of the same model and see if it's charging or not

Thanks

You can try to download the update from Dell's website you need, get your service tag # from the bottom of the laptop under battery and plug into Dell download site to get pointed to the correct update.

I have had the same problem the solution is not to replace the battery or charger. The fault is with the charger jack on the motherboard, you can purchase a new charger jack from eBay for 6. Strip the laptop down to the motherboard and replace.

Have you ever noticed any messages at power up regarding the AC adapter type? If not, then it sounds like your battery is dead. If you post back your service tag, I will have a look and inquire about a warranty exception.
