Hello, I have no knowledge about computer hardware, but my Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop has been facing some power issues. Whenever I charge my laptop, it does not retain power, and the Inspiron 1525 motherboard switches itself off. Can you help me? Please reply ASAP.
Troubleshooting Dell Inspiron 1525 Motherboard Power Issues
Hi, there are a couple of alternative solutions you can look for. First, check your AC adapter. Many faulty AC adapters can disrupt normal charging of the laptop. If your AC adapter works fine with other devices, it is time to open up the battery inside of your laptop.
Check whether the heat sink of your Inspiron 1525 motherboard is working properly or not. You may need to open up your laptop in this step, so if you are not comfortable, you can easily visit any authorized Dell repair stores to get it checked. The heat sink of your motherboard should look like this:
See if the heat sink is working. If not, then it is a case of a faulty motherboard. You should get it replaced or repaired then.
