Laptop Battery, plugged in but not charging, 87% full, Dell Power Plan

Dell laptop, inspirion 1525.   My battery will not charge as it should when plugged in.  It is 87% now, plugged in but not charging.  Any suggestion on how to fix this.  Not great with computers, so make it simple for me.

Hi,

I had almost the same problem with a brand new Dell Inspiron (battery was empty from the beginning, but laptop worked with ac power supply). Alway gave a constant rating for charging status, but was empty always. Turned out that the battery was broken. Problem solved with new battery.

I would like to add to the above, it is not charging but the battery does not seem to go down in power.  It has been at 87% for some time now and I have been using the laptop all along.  Sometimes it will charge but after restarting it will not charge for awhile, then it will charge, it is sort of eratic.
