While the notebook is TURNED OFF completely, try rubbing some isopropyl alcohol on the leads within the laptop that touch the battery with a cotton swab, could be that the leads are dirty.

Voltage may have been reversed on charging system and now the battery will not charge. Computer does not see charger, thinks it working off of battery only.

Troubleshooting for this is pretty straight forward.
  1. Try a different AC adapter (Borrow one if you can from another D-Series Dell, replace the adapter if you can't)
  2. If issue occurs with a new or known good AC adapter, then the motherboard will need replacement

Dell Inspiron E1505 won't recognize new battery

It won't charge or work correctly if it's not the correct one and of the right voltage etc.I don't know how the battery even went in if it's not the Dell specified battery.If it went in and looked to fit maybe the battery itself is bad but its hard to say.

Battery won't charge on my Inspiron E1505

Check your power adapter. Check its output voltage and current. I think your problem caused by the insufficient current that needed to charge your battery. If it's the problem, you need to buy new power adapter. ^_^
