Question about Dell Studio 1535 Notebook
How old is the battery? Usually, batteries only have 1 yr of life. It will start degrading when it is near its 1st year. You should consider that as well. You can try to take the battery out of the laptop and drain its power. Meaning, you would have to leave the computer without the battery and the ac adapter for at least 2 minutes. You can also press the power button while doing so to ensure its completely out of power. Next, plug in the AC adapter and turn your computer on without the battery (yes without the battery. This would check if your AC adapter is doing fine as well. If it does not turn on, you are having troubles with the AC adapter as well). After turning it on, allow windows to load and have the computer detect that it doesnt have a battery. You would see the icon that the battery is not connected. Next, turn your computer off and connect the battery. Unplug the AC adapter and turn the computer on. Wait until windows loads and then connect the AC adapter and see if you will still get the same message. If you would still be prompted that the battery is not charging, the last option before getting a new battery is to reinstall the Operating system. Sometimes, the problem that you are having is also a result of a failing power driver in the Operating system.
The easiest way to check is to put a known good working battery of the same model into your computer to check if its really the battery that you are having problems. If other batteries work, you should replace the battery that you have immediately. If it doesnt, its the laptops charging port that is having problems. If the laptop is still under warranty, you can have it brought to the service depot for repairs by calling DELL. but try doing the solutions that I have mentioned before doing so.
Hope this helps.
