SOURCE: battery not charging!
If the battery is 2 years old, then buy a replacement battery, see if it charges. Portable batteries are good for roughly 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles before they begin to fail roughly 18 months. Dell warrants the Battery for 1 year, so there is no warranty on the battery. If a replacement battery doesn't charge, then the motherboard will need to be replaced. If under warranty, Dell will fix it, if not, motherboards are $100-150 on Ebay.

there's only 2 possible issue with this problem and 2 solution.
Solution 1 update the BIOS.
(for DELL system's it will require that the battery still has at least 10% charge meaning that this solution is not going to be possible unless you have another battery that is currently charged. if so go here ) the BIOS version there is A16, if you have a different version you can update it.
Solution 2 replace the motherboard
if the problem still persist after going thru solution 1 there's only one step you need to take, you'll have to replace the motherboard for this type of problem. I hope you still have warranty for this computer, you can either have it shipped at the DEPOT or have an onsite come out to replace it.
hope that helps.
hit me back on the results.

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.

Had the same problem, My other Dell charger would work fine but the original one that came with this laptop would throw an error message that the Charger wasnt recognized. None of the suggestions on the forums worked.
I held the chord by the circular flex thing at the end, and pushed in the power pin with force into the laptop, held it for a few seconds and now it works fine. If you push the pin slow and gently into the laptop, it doesnt recognize the adapter. I think the problem is either with the power chord connections inside or with the adapter inside the laptop. Try it!
