Question about Dell Vostro 1500 Notebook
Normally the message means that the battery is bad and needs to be replaced. There is a chance the new battery you got was defective and went bad before its time.
The motherboard can be the problem, although it is not common for this to be the case.
I would try one more battery before thinking about a new motherboard, a new battery is under a $100 where a new mobo is several hundred, and usually this is a sign of a bad battery. If you disconnect the ac adapter and it stays on then it is using the battery, although it is reporting that it cannot see a charge. I would guess the battery malfunctioned and is not being able to be read by the laptop.
