If you system is brand new and the battery is not functioning properly, you need to contact Dell Techncial Support to get your issue resolved under the warranty. (800-624-9896)

Generally, and new portable system should run 2 to 4 hours (Depending on the capacity of the battery and what is beong done on the system) if you are not getting that performance out of the battery contact tech support.

Every time i boot up my brand new dell vostro i get an error: 00c08270 real time clock error - check time and date settings. I have been continuously updating the time and date but the error message keeps...

Meaning the RTC battery needs to be replaced.

The Real Time Clock battery is the CMOS battery.

Coin-Cell Battery

The laptop has to be completely disassembled down to the motherboard (System Board) in your hand.
On the bottom of the motherboard is the RTC Battery.

Since the laptop is brand new this falls on the place where you purchased it, or Dell.
It is still under warranty as far as replacing the RTC Battery. (It came with a bad battery. They need to replace it, not you)

I have a Dell Vostro a860. I have a new dell power adapter, a new battery, and have just had the power jack replaced. I still get a message the states that I'm connected but not charging. Any...

Probably the power charging circuit on the motherboard.
The question is, does the battery actually charge, no matter what the screen says? If it's a Dell charger, a Dell battery, then it should work. Some 3rd party batteries cause this message, but in actuality, the batteries seem to charge for the most part.

My dell vostro a860, when i plugged adapter its showing me plugged in not charging and continuously battery is not charging.

Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.
