    The battery for the time and date is the CMOS battery on your motherboard and not the battery to run your computer. Depending on how long you have had the battery it may just be worn out..they do after a while. If it won't charge then there is no fix except to buy a new one.

Hi there
Take the battery out and start the laptop up on AC power only, set the correct date, time and time zone, shut down the PC and remove the power jack, wait about 30 seconds then power it up on AC only again, If the date and time has changed the the cmos battery has run out and needs replacing. If it keeps date and time the problem is the battery or the powerboard controller that charges the battery is defective. If the battery is getting a charge, run the battery completely out of charge, then try to charge it again.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

My dell inspiron 1501 won't charge when it's plugged in it works for awhile then it seem to loose contact and the battery runs down fast.


Hello

It would appear that there is a motherboard issue with this model laptop from Dell. Below is a link to the discussion thread for the problem you described. Unfortunately, there is no current solution for this issue - short of replacing the laptop.

Laptop not turning on


If you replace the main battery and it will not charge, make sure the AC adapter is working (You can test the output with a multimeter) and make sure the LED on the Adapter stays on when connected to the system. Most likely, the motherboard has failed and will need replacement

Dell Inspiron 1501, replaced battery and power cord


Power on the laptop without the battery in the unit. If it powers on, then place the battery in and it will start to charge. Sometime the Dell laptop will not see the battery when it is replaced.

Replacement battery for Dell Inspiron 1501 won't charge


If your old battery was doing the same (not charging), then is is because the charger is not charging the battery. Do you have a friend with a Dell laptop? Maybe you can use a borrowed charger to test and see if it will charge the batteries. To answer your question , no Dell does not have anything built in to prevent you from using a 3rd party battery.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
