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.
