But I charged the battery by an other laptop, I conformed that the battery is healthy. But It is remain the same when I insert it in my laptop. Even my laptop cannot start by an other new battery. It says "available 89%(plugged in,charging)". When I plugged out the AC adapter, imdaitely shuts down. I wonder if any one tells me solution.

SOURCE: Compaq evo n610c battery not charging

Hello All;
I used to have these same problems. I replace my BIOS battery, which I know was dead, because all settings get reset when I unplug the power and remove main battery. You might not have to replace it if its still good. Back to the main battery problem, You have a good change of solving this by going into BIOS, and under Tools there is a Battery Calibration option. Do the calibration for the main battery and-or other optional batteries attach and it will most likely solve the problems. This calibration process will take a long time; 1-charge, 2-discharge, 3-recharge, so leave it over night or however.

There was a mention of updating BIOS. This could solve the problem too, because BIOS controls the charging unit. Also, make sure you have Compaq Power Management install on your OS, (download at hp.com).

One note: it will not charge if the battery is about 93% or higher. 93 is not exact, but close to 90%. so test by discharging to below 90% and it will start charging again.

If anyone tries this, leave a post of your success or failure.

SOURCE: dell inspiron 1525 will not charge the battery

Hello,
This problem has arised because your motherboard hasn't identified your battery. So, this is motherboard problem.
next time when you chat with the dell representatives, tell them that your motherboard is not recognizing your battery. They would arrange a pickup and would have it repaired in their center.
Good luck,

~regards,
Jegan

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 1545 power adapter not charging machine

Just call Dell, don't take it back to Best Buy or anything (that's where I got my Inspiron 1565). They will put you through a couple troubleshooting items and decide whether it's the AC adapter went bad or if they have to replace your motherboard. It's all free since they have a 1yr hardware warranty.

When try t charge my battery in my Vostro 1000, I get a message " The battery cannot be identified the system will not be able to cahrge the battery


Try this first:

Use up the battery until the the screen would black out. Afterwards, reboot the laptop ( without using the AC adaptor) and the system will warn you of low battery - to press F1. After pressing F1, plugged the AC adaptor back and try rebooting.

If the above does not work, there is a Bios update from Dell that suppose to fix this problem.

Hello
If the pins are bent or out of place on the adapter you will need to buy another adaptor.

If you bought this laptop new 6 months ago the store or manufacture warranty should still be good.

Will the power cord for the Dell Inspiron 1501 fit the Vostro 1500?


AC adapter for both systems belong to D-Family 65 W lead-free AC adapter So you can use the Ac adadpter Note :- The Vostro 1500 discrete version requires the 90 W AC adapter. Without it, you will receive an error message indicating the wrong AC adapter type, the CPU speed will downgrade, and the battery will not charge.

A few months ago my Dell Vostro 1500 laptop started saying that my battery could not be detected. I bought this laptop new in October 2007 and did not extend my warranty. I bought a new battery and...


Normally the message means that the battery is bad and needs to be replaced. There is a chance the new battery you got was defective and went bad before its time.

The motherboard can be the problem, although it is not common for this to be the case.

I would try one more battery before thinking about a new motherboard, a new battery is under a $100 where a new mobo is several hundred, and usually this is a sign of a bad battery. If you disconnect the ac adapter and it stays on then it is using the battery, although it is reporting that it cannot see a charge. I would guess the battery malfunctioned and is not being able to be read by the laptop.

The battery is not charging


Normally, one of 3 causes.  
  1. Dead Battery
  2. Bad connection of battery interface on Motherboard.
  3. The AC Adapter sensing pin (In the center of the plug) is damaged (If the system cannot sense the AC adapter, the charging circuit is disabled.)
Troubleshooting:
  1. Try a different AC adapter (Any Dell D-Series system adapter is interchangable)
  2. If no difference, then next is replace the battery.  (The battery on a portable is a consumable item, and the battery life is generally 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles  around 18 months)
  3. If no change with battery or AC adapter, then the failure is the charging circuit of the motherboard.
