Is it a new Dell Power Supply, if not it may not be the right voltage /wattage, so the system refuses to acknowledge low power.

Can I use the DELL Inspiron 6400 without the battery and its charger? If so, how do I safely remove the battery ?

Without BOTH the battery AND the charger, the only use for your computer is as a door-stop. :-)

Yes, the battery can easily be removed.
Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Flip the computer upside down.
Look for a "lock/unlock" button or slider.
Move the button or slider to the "unlock" position.
Carefully and slowly turn the computer right-side up,
and the battery should easily fall out of its socket, hitting your foot.

Reconnect the AC power, and start-up the computer.
