Bear with me...I'm the least technical person there is
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 - 14 Months Old. Warranty Expired.
Just yesterday, It was charging & holding charge normally. All of a sudden today I have 0%,Plugged In, Not Charging.
There seems to be many of these on the Dell boards just after the 12 month mark. Most required a new motherboard...some just a new battery. Is there a cheap/easy way to tell which one? Can I take it to my local Best Buy for them to check.....what will it cost me?

Is there a green light on the power adapter?
If your getting a not plugged in and not charging message then it is most likely the power port on your laptop. This would require a new motherboard or sometimes you can purchase the power module and have someone solder it onto the motherboard.
