[Resolved]  Dell Inspiron 1525 — Plugged in, not charging

Yes, like everyone else, i was dupped by the dell (Yet again) i was not happy with my desk top from a few years back and i should have not repeated the same mistake, ordering from dell again! So, i am partially to blame! But i was in a bind and had to purchase a laptop fast and didn't have neither the time nor the resources to consider another alternative (Or at least a little more educated before making a costly commitment like this)!
Anyway, the problem with this "expensive piece of junk" is what plenty other people have noted: right after i ran out of warranty, the battery (Which was noit fully charging before) depleated to 85% (Even plugged in) and from 85 to 50% and soon after i am looking at 29% and it is going down 1% everyday. Again, please bare in mind that the computer is always plugged in and never on without external power.
I am so concerned and don't know what to do, as i have heard the replacement batteris are mostly refurbished and do the same thing after couple of months! So, that means even if i buy another battery, there is no guarantee that is going to last me any more than couple of months. Plus with today's economy, i can not effort buying a "new" batthery and pay for installation and check run, etc.. Etc.
So, please take this as a complain, from a very frustrated dell consumer or venting and my little way of expressing my huge disappointment with dell (With their hurrible india -based customer support) and if nothing can be done about my problem, at least someone could be saved from making the biggest mistake of their life: buying a dell notebook! Or dell of anykind!

I also have an Espirion 1525 with a battery problem. I am also getting the reading "plugged in. Not charging. I switched batteries with my daughters 1525, and it continued to do the same thing. I'm going to do as Jimmy Dean suggested and call Dell about their ongoing motherboard problem.

I will post when I get an answer.

Finally i just come to you in search of HELP.
sir as i am student i had to do lot of works on my laptop so please help me.
thanking you

Dell treats the customers like hell where people mostly yell. Because all they want to solve over phone and are always reluctant to send their engineer. The reason behind this is that they do not provide after sales service directly. Dell is using either WIPRO or TVS-E etc services which are on hire basis.Dell simply dumps their defective products in India. So I would rather prefer to buy Wipro or HCL Note Books who have their own service establishments. Why buy Dell looking at the datas of their US sales. US people have the capacity to use & through such products but in India, people want complete worth of a product with durability.

DELL SMELLS HELL& SWELL THE OWNER WHICH IS TRUE. IT"S HIGH TIME NOW TO RING THE BELL FOR THE FUTURE BUYERS IN INDIA. IF A PERSON WANT's TO COMPLAIN UNDER WARRANTY PERIOD OVER PHONE HAVING THEIR GOLD TECHNICAL SUPPORT SERVICE, IT TAKES ATLEAST 30-45 MINUTES TO ATTEND THE CALL BY THEM. THEN IT TAKES LONG HOURS TO RESOLVE THE ISSUE, THAT TOO INVAIN. NOW JUST IMAGINE THE SITUATION OF PEOPLE HAVING A NORMAL TECHNICAL SUPPORT SERVICE. I THINK THE WHOLE WARRANTY PERIOD WILL LAPSE OVER PHONE ONLY.
Same problem here with my Dell 1525!

Dell Inspiron 1525 Core W Duo Windows Vista — clock battery

clock runs down- it happened about 2 weeks after the warranty ran out. I had mentioned to dell that the date and time were always wrong- I don't know anything about computers except to look up things and see whats going on in the world. Well, I talked to the dell tech- said it would cost me 50 dollars to talk to a technican about the problem- I had a person at work work on it for me for free- he replaced the clock battery but it still doesnt keep the correct date and time- I constantly go in 5 times a day and change it- I got a response from Dell after I posted to their site- the person said he works for Dell and all I need to do to fix the problem is replace the clock battery- and that it would fix the problem- he was unaware that I had already replaced the battery he was talking about- guess what- I replyed back to him and told him NO- THE BATTERY WAS REPLACED AND IT DOES NOT FIX THE PROBLEM- NEVER TO HERE FROM HIM AGAIN- THAT'S BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO REPLACE THE MOTHER BOARD - AND THAT WONT HAPPEN UNLESS A CLASS ACTION SUIT IS DONE. EVERYONE IS HAVING PROBLEMS WITH BATTERIES - WHAT ABOUT CLOCK BATTERIES- ANYONE ELSE HAVE THIS PROBLEM- WOULD LUV TO HERE FROM U
Same problem as many others, I have bought DELL for nearly 8 years but no more My newest Laptop is only 6 weeks old, New HDD, New Memory, new keyboard and now the battery has gone!!!
Complete junk, rubbish case leaves finger prints and smudges HP for me from now on. I am sick of paying premium rates to phone off shore pigeon English script readers making me undertake endless stupid tests when my laptop is a Norwegian blue parrot.
Have exact same problem with 1501 - Ive always purchased DELL - NO MORE - MY FAITH IS CRUSHED! Have had several problems for over a year, DONT BUY A DELL!!! They have created monsters since 2007
yeppers. i've been a dell customer for over a decade, but not anymore with my most recent dell laptop purchase and inspiron 15". dell has gone downhill and it's time we all took our purchasing power somewhere else. even if dell gets their act together - they're persona non grata in my book. once you rip me off with your excuse laden laptop issues - that's it for me. bye bye dell. oh and btw, i will be purchasing a couple more pc's in the next year and wellll, they won't be dell's anymore. hope you fix your dorkups quickly because there are a lot of ticked off customers that are going to send you into bankruptcy soon enough. but thennn, you asked for it with your inferior quality so i guess you reap what you sow.
