I am having Inspiron 1525 from last 2 years and it was working fine. suddenly today it started showing bettery status as "plugged in not charing". I tried to take bettery out and push it back couple of times. Once it worked and charged better from 5% to 92% but again after making some sound it came back to original status as "plugged in not charging".
Does that mean there is a loose socket OR issue with better? I think it should be first one but can you please suggest how to fix it.
The battery might need replacing. Test by removing the battery and use just the adapter plugged into an outlet. If it works that way, replace the battery.
