You can download only, if the battery is not completely dead. there is possibility that the suppose new battery has been kept for long, and thus discharged. it is either you take it back to the company for change or get a new one. good luck

Dell m5110 laptop won't charge new battery and ac adapter is not recognized in bios

Try another AC cord/charger with the EXACT same specs as original. Is the battery a genuine Dell battery, if not return it? Some aftermarket laptop batteries don't play well with your computer, the pin-out connections aren't correct and MAY be a fire hazard.

New battery not recognised

Some aftermarket batteries don't work well. The connections aren't correct, the pin-outs are wrong. Your best bet would be return it. Try to get the Manufacturer of your Laptop's genuine replacement, they will cost more, but it will be less of a pain in the long run. Some aftermarket,Chinese counterfeits, MAY be dangerious as well. Fire hazzard.

Dell precision m6300 battery won't charge.

You say it's a new battery. Is the battery the same EXACT spec? Some aftermarket batteries don't work well with your laptop. The pin-out/connections may be incompatible. That said, in your BIOS is there a "Battery Learning" section.

2001 ford taurus power draining new battery & new alternater won't work when cables are removed from battery

That suggests that the problem is in the harness, something in the connector or wiring is causing an open circuit. You will need to have the circuit tested to find the fault. Ford alternators have known connector issues & new aftermarket connectors are readily available at most auto parts stores.

If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

New aftermarket Inspiron 6000 battery will not power the Laptop

I would say that the power management portion of the system board is probably faulty if it behaves the same with both the factory battery and the aftermarket.

Many systems have the charge controller and battery interface on a separate board but unfortunately on the Inspiron 6000 it's integrated.

FYI, Here's a copy of the service manual for that system:

Hi - my 2007 tl type s is having a hard time starting. I cleaned the corrosion around the posts and battery connectors - much better now, but still iffy on start up. no battery indicator. no indicator...

Take your car to any autozone or advance autoparts and they can do a free battery and alternator test. Also do you have any aftermarket accessories that could be constantly drawing from the battery.(Subwoofers, Aftermarket deck that requires you to hit the power off button?) I would guess that a new battery would fix your issue if you dont have any aftermarket loads. OE batteries these days are getting cheaper and junkier.
