SOURCE: not charging
Dell PA-10 & PA-12 have internal serial ROM chips that communicate with the PC via the tiny center pin in the powerr plug.
If that pin gets bent or is not making proper contact, the laptop USUALLY complains and runs from AC adapter but refuses to recharge the battery ..

You could replace the cells in the old battery if you want to bother opening it up, getting new cells, soldering them together and resealing the case. Unless you're used to doing that kind of work, it's probably not worth it.
But it appears that the battery has reached the end of its life, so nothing you do to it will make it work again.

That usually indicates battery is beginning to go bad. Eventually it will not hold a charge and will need to be replaced.

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.

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!
