Question about Dell Precision M6300 Mobile Notebook
The power meter shows now 30% from 46% on new battery. When I disconnect the charger, the battery discharge icon shows in the Taskbar. When connecting the charger, I have to move the plug about before the icon goes off. However, there is a time delay - I can move the plug then 3 seconds later, the icon goes off. There is some charge to the computer or it would have died many days ago. I tried a new battery and charger without success. I don't recall making any changes to anything before this started.
You say it's a new battery. Is the battery the same EXACT spec? Some aftermarket batteries don't work well with your laptop. The pin-out/connections may be incompatible. That said, in your BIOS is there a "Battery Learning" section.

what i would suggest is to check the bios there may be a new flash download on the dell website, my wife has a inspiron 1525, which is plugged in and says not charging, the battery will not go above 0%, but we have had to send it to dell (still under warranty) faulty motherboard. if the bios is up to date, there could be a hardware issue with the battery or motherboard

sounds like a motherboard problem. to isolate it, check the BIOS and look for the battery info and health to see if the battery is recognized by the system. if available, try a spare battery. Updating the BIOS can also help. There are BIOS updates that contain fixes which can help improve battery performance. if all else fails, the motherboard will have to be replaced. Check with Dell support if your laptop is still in warranty.
