Need and genuine DELL 1525 BATTERY

Q: Need and genuine DELL 1525 BATTERY

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop with Battery of type: RN873, Rating: 11.1V, Capacity 56Wh.

Currently this battery is not available in the market and whenever I purchase online for a battery of Inspiron 1525, I am getting battery of different type, Capacity 48Wh. Can you help me to get an genuine dell battery?

Please would appreciate your help. Thank you!

Preferred Solution: Need and genuine DELL 1525 BATTERY

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Need and genuine DELL 1525 BATTERY

For a genuine Dell battery you'll pay $80-100 -- consider carefully spending that on a system that has a resale value of between $50-75 on the used market (in other words, you'll be spending more on the battery than the system is worth).

I Purchased a Dell N5050 J1KND Battery . I needed to verify that is that battery Genuine Dell Inc. manufactured/marketed or Just a Replica!? Its Part no. is 4YRJH. I Would be highly Grateful to you if you could please verify it for me. Please resolve and reply ASAP. Thank You

A:I Purchased a Dell N5050 J1KND Battery . I needed to verify that is that battery Genuine Dell Inc. manufactured?

This is  not genuine.  The 9C5 would mean the battery was manufactured in March, 2009.  And Dell's labels don't have the date posted as 2017/07/27.

Hello guys,

My Dell Inspiron 1525 battery died 4 days ago. I am going to buy a new one. If I buy it from Dell it will cost me about $150, but if I buy it from Amazon it will be $50. So do you recommend me to buy it from Amazon, and if I buy it from there is it going to affect my system or the motherboard of the system.

Please help as soon as you can

Thanks alot,, Salam Alshaikh

I have a 2 month old XPS15 purchased form the Dell Outlet Store in the UK. I usually have it permanently plugged in, but recently used it on battery power for the first time. I noticed that the battery wasn't charging, and the indicator light at the front blinks alternately white and orange (one white then one orange)
After a bit of investigation I found the BIOS Battery settings saying that the battery was not a genuine Dell battery and therefore wouldn't charge. I have not changed the battery - the machine is exactly as supplied by Dell.
It now pops up a warning about the battery whenever I power on.
I tried upgrading the BIOS (from 1.1.3) but every time I tried it would fail.
Is it now standard practice for Dell to supply laptops without genuine Dell batteries?

My home desktop is connected to a wireless router through AT&T U-verse and it's broadcasting just fine. I can see the name and everything when I try and connect on my laptop but there is always an error that brings me to a troubleshooting screen. I've made sure the password is correct by going to Start-Run, IPCONFIG and then typing my IP address into the address bar in my browser. I dont know what else I can do, I feel like I've tried everything! Help please.

A:Laptop (Win7 Dell Inspiron 1525) won't connect to desktop (XP Dell) wireless router

Sometimes, you need to replace the router.
Sometimes, you can call your service provider and ask them to take a look on line to see if the subscription needs to be refreshed.
But often, all that is needed (despite the fact that it is a lot of work) is to uninstall your existing system, then reboot, and reinstall everything.
You might also find success by looking at your device manager in Windows to see if you have any grey, red, or yellow flags by any related device. That may show you have a permanent hardware failure if you cannot restore it, then you are off to the store or your provider for a new cable modem or router.

Hi All,

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 that has completely died. I'm not sure what happened to it exactly, as there is not evidence of a drop or a spill, but there are no signs of life whatsoever. I took the battery out, and plugged in the adapter. I know the adapter works fine as the little green light comes on when it's plugged in, and I tried it in another laptop in which it worked. When I hit the power button nothing happens. No lights turn on, or flash, no sounds are made...nothing. It's lifeless. I was thinking about just hitting eBay and ordering a new motherboard, but does anyone know if this is the right thing to do? I don't have the $100 bucks to throw down without being certain so I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.

two ribbons
one connector by start button
cant think of anything else


A:Dell 1525 touchpad

Fairly common problem in that model if the laptop gets rugged use.
Often that problem is caused by a small wire plug-socket becoming detached.
You can remove the bezel and keyboard, and reseat it and usually ahve success... if not, purchase a used bezel... because the operational chips are attached to the bezel electronics. In some cases you have to replace the keyboard and the bezel... total cost about $45 on eBay.

Try the repair option.

There, you should find an option to run Startup Repair. Try that, maybe even more than once.

You should also see an option to open a command window. In that window, run a disk check:

chkdsk /r

Note the results, and in particular, if any bad clusters are found (Bytes in Bad Clusters).

Hi all.   .how you doing?

i have the dell inspirion 1525.  
recently i have changed the ram . the three blue lights by the power button give me the code for the ram problem. 
so i got a 2nd hand ram x2 & changed them, then the system came on & worked good.

before this...
every now n then the laptop would freeze or crash.
so, i got a 2nd hand hard drive (from a place i would say is a decent place, i got hard drive for my ps3 & got my sisters hp laptop ,its about 2yrs old now..)
& put this hard drive into my dell 1525, the laptop came on but nothing really would work, so i found out that it needs drivers for ..-.. wireless card.. -. sound card..-. & other thing's.

so i put the old hard drive back in & it works but every now n then it goes down. 
before it completely does..
can i copy my drivers that are ...
go into... my computer...
..then into,, OS (c)
..then into.. drivers..

then a number of folders are on the right hand side..
when i click on a folder, a number of things in this folder open. 
.. can i just copy a main folder from the laptop to a usb flash drive..?
or do i have to copy each 1 in the main folder to a usb flash drive.?

A:Upgrading my Dell Inspiron 1525

Do you know if that machine is Win 7 compatible at all, drivers aside?

I wouldn't get frantic about drivers.

Your Windows install disc should have most of them; you might get a few more from Windows Update.

I would go to Dell's website and download your Ethernet (NIC) driver in case Windows doesn't install it. It's the most important driver as you need it to get on the net.

Of course, it wouldn't do any harm to download all possible drivers from Dell, but I wouldn't necessarily install them. See how Windows own drivers do for you.

After you install and get updated, inspect the functionality of your hardware and take a look in Device Manager. If anything is goofy at that time, then look around for other drivers.

My four year old tossed my Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop across the room today, and since then, it isn't booting.

It reaches Vista's loading screen, where you see the moving bar and "© Microsoft Corporation," but it doesn't go past that point. Initially, I heard a clicking sound.

I tried booting it in Safe Mode, but the same thing happened. I also tried booting it from the Vista DVD, but got the same problem.

I took the hard drive out and looked at it, and couldn't see any visual damage.

I ran the Windows Diagnostics tool, and got the following error code:

Error code 0142

Error code 2000-0142

Hard drive 1 - self test unsuccessful status 79

I've seen reports of people having similar problems that were fixed by a replacement hard drive, but I'm wondering if I can get the data off of this one first. Is it worth trying to find an external USB drive enclosure, or is the drive too damaged?

And how can I get my laptop running again? It's not under warranty anymore.

Thanks for any help!

I would buy an external wd passport harddrive.
Take the hard drive out of your laptop...2 screws on botom of the unit.
set it down and take a picture to remember the orientation of the black plastic pull cover.
Take the wd external apart..it will slide out..its a little tricky the first time.
now switch the covers between the 2 hard drives and put the usb adapter on the old hard drive and slide evevything back in the case about 90 percent of the way.
push the hdd into the laptop...be sure to put the pull handle back on.
Use you windows dvd and put on windows
then the drivers from the drivers and utilities disk

now plug in your old had via the usb port and see if you can read the files...alot of times you can recover many of the files

Note..when booting the vista dvd
hit power start tapping f12 light and fast
then select the dvd rom from the list to boot from

My friend's Dell 1525 PP29L (running XP) laptop is getting error code "0326 LCD unable to turn Lamp ON/OFF."

The laptop boots using an external monitor and, absent the very dim display, runs fine. A bit of research compels me to the conclusion that replacing the inverter and backlight will fix the problem, but I have a concern.

It appears that many screens on this model are going out. Assuming there's an engineering issue with this screen, is there any way I could verify whether or not Dell has resolved it? Has anyone else had this issue? If so, were you able to resolve it? How so?

Hello all,

I just finished wiping a friends laptop with a fresh copy of Windows XP Pro SP3. A couple days later I went to use it after it installed Microsoft Office 2007 Pro Plus. IT was extremely slow afterwards. Extremely slow means it took 15 minutes just to pull up the Start Menu. I removed all traces of Office and it was still slow so I did a clean install on Windows Vista (Which it shipped with) however the install itself is taking ages as well... Can anyone tell me what has happened??? I am at a loss and I just want this thing to start working again. I have also tried resetting the BIOS back to default settings and still nothing!

A:Dell Inspiron 1525 very slow

Could be a simple hardware problem..make sure everything in bios is reading correctly (amount of ram, CPU clock speed, etc).
a fam member had a 1525, and it died spectaculary. Maybe they just arent good laptops.
If its not the above, IDK. new OS would be first suggestion, but apparently you did that already.

hi everyone... my dell inspiron 1525 that's about two years old, and has had to operate (most of the time, continuously...) under terrible conditions - smothered ventilation and, oven-hot, is now beeping...

...this summer it seemed the battery went (it would not work unless it was plugged in at all times), and then the fan started running nearly constantly and it would be so hot that it would burn my fingers and often shut off (i've got a cooling fan now, but i don't think it's helping, probably too little, too late), and of late i notice that it is sometimes making a soft click-pause-click sound with occasional louder clicks (the sound of a latch being opened/closed) ...although, now i recall that it may have made that sound once in a while, even when it was new, but maybe i never realized that it could have been doing that because it was critically hot and the hard drive was being damaged...
and now finally it has started making an occasional, small but high pitched, single beep that sounds like it's coming from the hard drive. is this a warning alarm that the hard drive is about to die very soon?

i hated having to run my 'baby' under these conditions and know i'm probably fortunate that it has served me for this long

A:Formating my Dell Inspiron 1525(Need Help)

What's the 7-character service tag number on the sticker of that Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop?


If you've done a hard drive format and clean reinstall of Windows Vista, it needs to be upgraded to SP1 and then to SP2 before you download and install all the post-SP2 updates.

You've obviously done something wrong because it's impossible for the hard drive to fill up from just doing what you say you've done.

My Laptop over heated today and I removed the back plate to gain access to clean out the fan ect... Once I tried to boot the computer up, everything flashed at me like always but then turned off, the screen remained black.
I?ve done a little research via googled and I have tried .....

1) Removing the AC power lead and the battery and switched them about to see if it would resolve, but resulted in the same issue as stated above.
2) Holding the power button down for 10/20 seconds without the laptop having power and with power. Then powering up.
3) I?ve pulled the HDD and the memory as instructed by the Dell support site (When power was disconnected) and booted, switch the memory about and booted a number of time. Everything was re-connected properly.

This is driving me totally mad as I need the laptop due to work and other reasons, I paid £550 about four years ago so it?s no longer under warranty, also none of the settings where changed before the issue began.

I would be grateful for any advice or assistance,So what is the possible issue that I?m having, is my motherboard fried or is it something else?
