Bettery status showing "plugged in not charging"

This question is not answered

Hi,

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.

Thanks,

  • 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.
