Re: Charger plugged in and computer says it's...
There is a dc regulator board in that laptop most likely the battery you replaced my have shorted and damaged this part.this dc board passes voltage to laptop and regulates the power to battery if it get damaged the laptop can work on ac but not charge the battery this dc board is what stops the battery from overcharging and can turn off the power to battery. this is a fairly affordable part.I can tell you that I have had dealings with manifuctures i try to deal with problems myself in my shop.most people you callat hp should not even own a computer much less try to help you fix it.I recent spent 26 hours on dell web site trying to get a 3 month old tower replaces easyer to pull teeth.Hope this is helpful too you.

Dell uses proprietary equipment. IF the laptop wont work when plugged in and it is the original Dell charger, you need to check the charger, if the charger wont work then the battery wont charge. Note that it might be the connection on the board inside the laptop especially if the cord got pulled on while plugged into the laptop.
before you buy the battery.Test the battery with the software coming with your computer or download the software diagnostic for indicate was going on. After you can make some decision for to buy any batteries in according with the quality and your money.
This could be caused by several things, but try the obvious first. I just bought a brand new power supply, and in less than a week the customer called and said it stopped working. I suggested she take the cord from the old charger and try it - it worked - the brand new cord lasted less than a week. The other thing that could cause this is a bad connection on the end of the power supply, going into the computer. It could even be a bad power supply.The last thing I can think of is a bad battery that won't hold a charge.
We are talking about the main battery / not cmos battery?
Does charger lamp illuminate?
If so ensure plugs are securely pressed in to Laptop and charger.
If charger lamp does NOT light up try a different wall plug.
Surely Dell would have tested that battery and charging before returning.
u can try reseting the BIOS.onlyt option is taking out the CMOS battery and then putting it back but in tat case u hav to open up u r keyboard ,,its a bit risky,,so u better call up tech support for locationg the CMOS battery
