How old is your laptop?
If you have had your laptop a while now it is very possible that the battery on your laptop is becoming weak, or is about to go out.

The first thing i would do is remove the battery.. Make sure that their i'snt anything like dust, animal hair, ect, that would be keeping the battery and the laptop from getting a good connection.

The 2nd thing is their really isn't away to test the quality of a laptop battery for someone at home unless they have two of the same laptop. My only other suggestion to ya b4 you go out and buy a new battery is if you can find a good computer shop in your town, just go into it and see if they have any batteries that will work in your laptop and see if you can try it in it and see if you get the same error, or if they can try putting your battery in thier laptop and see if its bad.

Other options espically if you dont care if its used you might beable to find a replacment battery at. just search for the item your looking for, by Band of the computer. the battery sometimes will have a model # on it also. Just take it out and see if their is any stickers on it.

Other good website is

if you decide to try to find a cheaper solution to finding a replacement battery if it is needed.

Please rate me, and or leave feedback. Ty
and Good Luck.

My laptop is dell inspiron 1501 but no work keybord and battery charging but supply line(AC adaptor) is ok.

Hello there. The Inspiron 1510 was released almost 5 years ago. If your system is more than 2 years old, then perhaps you will have to replace the battery. Battery for the most part, will only last 1 to 2 years. As for the battery, try connecting an external USB keyboard. If its working, then you need to replace the laptop's keyboard. Hope this will help.

My dell 1501 does not recognise its battery on start up, and does not charge the battery either

if youre battery does not charge and is not recognized by your laptop then its time to have it replaced or fixed, you will always need to plug your laptop in order for to you use it which is sometimes annoying, have it replaced

Dell inspiron 1501

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!!

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
