Generally this is an indication that the battery has failed. The normal life span of a PC battery is 300 to 500 recharge cycles (Roughly 12 to 18 months) so the most likely answer is buy a new battery since this one is already out of warranty

SOURCE: Battery won't charge (Dell mini 9 Linux).

The software has nothing to do with the charging system. There was a recall on some batteries, and that may be why they issued replacements.

Will not recognize battery

Is it a Dell battery or OEM? If it is an OEM it may be designed to ignore it and only use Dell type batteries. Or, is it very well used? It may be faulty.

I plug my laptop in and it comes up on the screen, unable to identify battery, but has a full charge? Why?

All dell batteries have a small chip in them. Basicly Dell has determined that your battery has reached the end of its useful service life compared to other batteries that it has tested.

This is compuletely normal for dell computers. Now if your computer is still within the warranty period they will send out a new one free of charge.

To find out if you have remaining warranty, go to dells warranty page here. On that page you will enter your service tag # that is found on a thin white sticker on the back of your computer.

Hope this help.

I have a Dell inspiron mini 1011 netbook, only had it a year, was working fine last night now it says "the battery cannot be identified, it cannot be charged on this system." The light keeps flashing...

Take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether

How can i fix my new dell netbook inspiron mini 1010,when i turn it on there is warning that the battery cannot be identified.the system will be unable to charge this batt

Try to unplug the battery and plug it back well.
Does your battery's power ratings match with your Laptop? Check that information just on your battery, power adapter and on the laptop. If theres any mismatch, please get what matches your laptop.
Otherwise check whether your Power Adapter charges your Battery (Test for power within the Charger). If everything fails, change your battery and ensure it fits your Laptop in terms of Power ratings.
Good Luck!

I just put a replacement battery on my Inspiron 710M. On startup I get a message that says, "The battery cannot be identified. This system will be unable to charge batteries until this battery is removed."...

This battery is not compatible with this laptop. Dell batterys have a sensor that tells to laptop is it dell battery or not. Unfortunately you have to replace battery with correct one.
