Hi everyone, hope I've posted this in the right forum.

My problem is my laptop battery is attached, the ac power is plugged in and switched on but the battery icon says "71% available (plugged in, not charging) This is a new battery as I assumed the old one was u/s as it was doing the exact same thing. I know its not the power lead/block as the laptop works fine without the battery attached. If anybody could work out whats going on and can suggest a solution I'd be very grateful, thanks.

Welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

Here is a link to an owners manual and a service manual to your laptop. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/syst...25/en/index.htm

This link is for the recommended Dell batteries, charger and power supplies for the inspiron 1525 laptop. http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/categor...mp;chassisid=-1

On the Dell support pages I have not been able to find any posted issues regarding the batteries or adapters that come with the inspiron 1525 laptop.

You may want to make sure the battery contacts in the laptop are not dirty or oxidized, which could be causing some electrical resistance between the contacts.
