Hi,
If you are able to start your computer with AC adapter that means your motherboard has gone bad, Contact dell support to get a mother board replaced.

I have "INSPIRON 6400" and


The best and cheapest solution is probably for you to purchase one of the aftermarket batteries you have been researching. While they may be physically compatible, original Dell components are often designed to identify themselves, and they tend to resist being mixed-and-matched. Aftermarket manufacturers have developed strategies to avoid the authentication process.
Before you give up, though, be sure to try this trick: simultaneously press Fn and either F2 or F3 (which ever one has the battery icon printed on it). If you've unwittingly pressed this combination, you may have disabled the charging process. Try it with BOTH batteries--the battery that originally shipped with the Inspiron 6400 may not be dead after all!

Tip

Looking for the longest battery life laptop ?


We’ve yet to see a Windows laptop with battery life longer than 5~7 hours, unless we add an extended battery to the system. But when hpand dell launched its new series of laptops last week, one big push wasfor longer battery life.

When you purchase your notebook, charge the battery to 100 percent,discharge it completely, and then fully charge it to 100 percent againto help the battery remember exactly how much electrical charge it canhold. From then on, you’ll never need to completely discharge the laptop battery again, but always make sure when charging it that you let it reach 100 percent. DeHoop told us to “remember to plug in the laptop AC adapter(or dock/port replicator) whenever you get a chance. Most notebookswill recharge quickly.” Salinas had another tip for your batteries:“Keep them cool. Exposure to high temperatures can be a battery’s worstenemy,” he said

Hope the list can give you some help when you purchase a laptop or battery:

Hi
I think the battery you bought is not compartible with your pc notebook that is why you are experiencing such problem.All you need to do is to get to the store or outlrt where you got the battery and get it replaced for a compartible battery or better still you should go along with your system.
GOODLUCK

My Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop battery isn't charging, I think :(


Debby
Try booting without the battery installed. You probably will have no change but this eliminates the battery as a source of the problem. If it doesn't boot and you are sure that the external power supply is ok, you probably have a bad motherboard. At that point, the unit needs to be checked out by a pro or a really competent amateur.

Dell inspiron 6400 Battery problem


what i would suggest is to check the bios there may be a new flash download on the dell website, my wife has a inspiron 1525, which is plugged in and says not charging, the battery will not go above 0%, but we have had to send it to dell (still under warranty) faulty motherboard. if the bios is up to date, there could be a hardware issue with the battery or motherboard

You can also pick up the batteries less expensive than most computer places at batteries plus. And yes it sounds as though it is the batteries charge is getting low, especially if it runs fine when the battery is out and you have it plugged in.
