If the battery is not charging,it can be that the battery itself works properly,but the system doesn't indicate that
the battery is charging. in order to fix this problem,you will need to reinstall the battery management software by
using Device Manager 1.Open Device Manager Right click on My Computer->select Properties->click Hardware tab->click Device Manager or if you're using Vista or windows 7,type "device" on the Start menu and select Device Manager 2.Expand the Batteries category 3.Under the Batteries category, right-click the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listing, and select
Uninstall . WARNING: Do not remove the Microsoft AC Adapter driver or any other ACPI compliant driver. 4. On the Device Manager taskbar, click Scan for hardware changes. Please let me know if it's works or not and thanks for using fixya
Chances are when you reinstall Windows Xp you will lose your data.
You can recover your data by removing the hard drive from your laptop and plug it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect this to a working computer's USB port. This computer will see this as a external hard drive and you will see the various folders and files.
Copy and or burn your data folders and files to a CD.
Then put the hard drive back into your Fujitsu reinstall Windows XP.
The most likely cause of your ills is a failed motherboard Jake. Processors are pretty tough but unfortunately HP did a lousy job with the motherboards on the DV series and many, many of them fail and usually after the warranty is over.
It does charge until the battery reaches full charge, then charger stops and laptop use adapter's power. The whole system is thought to not damage or wear the battery while in charge. Leave battery safely inside your Dell while using it with power adaptor, it should not make any difference in your battery life.
