Dell Inspiron 1525 :: Won't Charge - Battery Flashes Back And Forth Going From Blue To Orange
Jan 23, 2015
My dell inspiron 1525 wont charge and it only comes on when connected to the charge, the battery says charging normally, then on the home screen it says connected not charging. On the outside the battery flashes back and forth going from blue to Orange.
I just bought a brand new battery for this laptop, it came with 53% battery life and because it has been plugged in it hasn't dropped a percentage but will not charge. it says in the battery info that it's plugged in but not charging.
Inspiron 1525 - Battery will not charge with plug connected. Upgraded to current version Bios with no change in error.. Upgraded from 65W to 90W adaptor with no change in error. Swapped known good battery that had 55% power left and it would not re-charge. Put "suspect" battery that had 0% charged into another machine and it is now charging. My laptop will work on cord power and will work on battery as long as I charge it elsewhere. I suspect that something is wrong with the laptop power interface and it is not allowing the power to transfer to the battery charging function. Is this a software issue (I thought the BIOS upgrade might fix this) or a hardware failure. If it is a hardware failure, can I fix it?
My mute button is Orange & i can't get it to go back to green or blue when i touch it I get no sound at all On the bottom right corner where it shows the volume when i touch the mute botton it shows mute then on but orange mute button dont change back to blue or green in color so volume will work
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525. The 6-cell battery that came with it stopped holding its charge, so I bought a new 9-cell battery. Now that one won't hold a charge. I figured it must be the cord, so I bought a new one. It still won't hold a charge. When I run my mouse over the battery icon, it says XX% (currently 37%) available (plugged in, not charging). I know just enough about computers to be dangerous, but not enough to figure out what is wrong. Can anyone help me trouble shoot?
my dell inspiron 1545 wont start up. when it does it goes to the..... start windows normally, or repair and when i click repair it goes to ```getting windows files then stops for a while. then goes to to a black screen and stops for a while. then it goes to the windows7 screen but no icons come up.
when i try to start windows normally it flash's blue then restarts itself.
.After I push power button, one of 3 lock lights, the A lock flashes blue, and a steady blue power light occurs to right of keboard, for about 5-7 seconds, then turns off after a soft high pitched beep.. The computer did get hot before this occurred. Tried getting new power cord because old one was not correct one. Tried booting up with and without battery & did not work. Screen never comes up.
At first the power light was blue, and when I plugged it in the light around the power cord would light up, now its not doing that, and when I press the power button a little orange light flashes at the bottom for a few seconds and that is it. I bought this in a really big hurry, because I do school online. I do own and Alienware, and it was having network problems. So I found a guy who had this computer, and he turn it on for me, the power light was blue, he told me that it hadnt been plugged in in a while. He gave me a 90 day warranty, along with the charger. I brought it home set it on the desk and plugged it in. Left it on the charger for about 9 hours. Pressed the power button, a little orange light flashes at the bottom for a few seconds and thats it. My question is, is this savable? It could be a battery or it could be the charger. Those parts are not expensive, and I know a friend who could really use a laptop. Or should I sell it for parts..
My problem is that my daughters 1525 says it is plugged in but not charging. I have tried various Dell and Universal chargers with no change. I have also replaced the battery and the only noticeabl change is that with the new battery by blinking amber lights have stopped. I assume that means the battery was bad. But I still have the issue with it saying it is plugged in but not charging.
I am using dell inspiron 1525 laptop.my dvd drive is out of order and now i want to restore my laptop back to the factory resetting.. Although i have already tried F8 process but once i click on repair, a page opens after dell logo which states user name and password. i enter my user name which has admin properties and its password but it doesn't work.
My laptop is just over a year old, and out of the warranty. I'm particularly upset about this.
My battery, which was working just fine yesterday is now giving me a "plugged in," not charging message. The lights on the front of the computer (Dell Inspiron 14z, 2012 model) is flashing orange 3x then white.
My mom has the same laptop as me and hers is working fine. Her adapter (which works for her) would not charge my battery. Her battery worked in my laptop but would not charge. Using her battery, I updated the BIOS since I couldn't previously as it was less than 10%.
I have a problem with my laptop. Just the power light is lighting up and the battery indicator is flashing in orange ( with charger,without charger - nothing). Nothing on the screen, no fans, no sound.
I have a Studio 1558, about 3 years old. Had the computer on and plugged in last night, and turned off the outlet switch by accident. This morning, it's dead. When I plug the power adapter into the jack on the laptop, the blue LED jack light flashes once, stays on for up to a second, then turns off. That's all the laptop can do.
Pulled the battery, but changed nothing. Trying to troubleshoot where the problem lies.
I have a pixel that is a little confused. It just does not know what colour to be. On my orange back ground it is black, I move over it with a grey window it turns green then kind goes back to normal to a lighter colour orange. Then goes back to black. even weirder if I move a window around below it, like far below it it goes away depending on where the window is.

Problem: After logging in, the screen flashes the Start Screen on and off in random fashion, and is unresponsive to any input.
Effort: We followed the instructions on the HP web site for this symptom (Desktop Screen Flashes Between a Blue Screen with a Blank Taskbar and a Desktop Screen on Startup (Windows 8)), but it failed at step 8 - the Start Screen flashes in Safe Mode with no way to find or enter the "Control Panel" step.
We have also rolled back the system to the last restore point, reseated the memory, and reset the BIOS - all HP recommended processes for video problems.
Current Status: We always look to resolve any problems via the HP web site first; this one had us stumped.
Refurbished Laptop - latitude E6410. The battery light contrantly flashes on the Battery five or Six solid blue lights - Then three flashing lights.In addition, the Light on the Computer ( ) and the desk top icon for the power adaptor cord /battery says" Plugged in - Not charging".I ran the Dell Diagnostics (Fn key at bootup) but it found no problems.is the battery dead?
My initial thoughts were that I had a battery issue the Ion battery. So I went to dell and purchased a new battery 2 weeks ago. Plugged that guy in and my theory was a bust.
Next, I turned to the ac adapter and decided it must be the problem. Back to dell to drop some more $$$ - just arrived and...well, let's just say I wouldn't be writing to this post if that solved my problem. I have surfed through various other posting will no avail.
The laptop can run fine on just the ac power - just no juice is getting to the battery to recharge it. I went into the BIOS set-up and it stated that it did not recognize the ac adapter -
can't figure why that may be the case, but none of the less I've got nothing but Dell products here - no knock-offs. Any suggestions or theories? I just can't believe I could have a bad motherboard here - the laptop works great otherwise.
I have an old Inspiron 1750. I bought a new Dell battery and I am getting the message plugged in, not charging. I have the original DELL charger. This was not a problem with the old (not DELL) battery, which still charged but only held the charge for 10 minutes.
But all the batteries I find online say they are only 11.1v?? So is there a wrong battery in here or are battery sellers just faking buyers out by upping their advertised Wh/Ah by listing a lower than actual voltage?
This is a common practice one sees all the time in RV battery manufacturer ratings - but a 3.7 volt difference is a lot if the system requires 14.8 to operate and it's only getting 11.1.
It certainly isn't a bargain to get "higher Wh/Ah" by starving the system's voltage because then all your getting is sluggish/strained performance for a longer period of time, and if they put out the required voltage than sellers are lying about the actual caqpacity...
I bought a Inspiron 1525 in March 2008. As of today the battery is not charging. I called Dell and they told me that I needed a new battery. After spending nearly $135 for a new battery, I am still having the same issue. Unfortunately my laptop is out of warranty. I have read the various forums on here to find a solution, but still nothing. It seems this is a pretty regular issue with the Inspiron 1525 and other Dell laptops. I've updated the BIOS, I blew into both recepticals, and yes, even tried a new battery.
I love my new Inspiron 17R SE 7720. But I do seem to have some battery issues...
The battery simply never seems to charge to 100%. It charges to just 55-60% or so and never seems to get any higher. I've tried all the various power settings, including the various Dell special setting. Nothing seems to work.
It will be tomorrow before I can run the diagnostics I found in the support pages. But I'd like to make sure I'm not just missing something. Should it be charging when it's powered down but plugged in? I would think so, but still goes no higher than ~57%.
