My computer would not charge when I plugged the ac adapter in, so I thought the ac adapter must be bad. I purchased another one and it would not charge with the new one either. So I took both adapters out to my mothers and plugged them into her computer and they both worked charging her computer, we both have Dell Inspiron 1525's. I upgraded a year ago from Vista to Windows 7. So I bought a new ac jack/usb port to replace on the motherboard and followed a video on how to disassemble and repaired the port. When I re-assembled and put battery in, pressed the power button and it will not come on. The only light that does anything is the charging light blinks. There are no noises, beeps, or anything. What could cause this, or is there something else I need to do, does battery have to fully charge to allow it to start up?

Try removing the battery and starting it with only the AC cord. I know some laptops may not let you do it, but the last 3 I had did.
