I've got myself a problem. I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop that won't charge the battery. I have tried a new Battery and new AC Adapter.
When I go into BIOS it says the Battery is performing normally. The old Battery says it is at 0% and idle. It says below that the AC-Adapter can't be identified. I've got the factory AC Adapter connected and I've tried a new 3rd party AC-Adapter as well as a Universal AC-Adapter. All say the same thing that they can't be identified. They all work to power and run the system but the Battery will not charge.
I've had this happen to me about 6 months ago on another Dell computer where it wouldn't Charge. I am wondering what my options are. Are there any fixes. I will try and upgrade the BIOS but I don't know that it will fix it. Is it another one where the entire motherboard must be replaced? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
