Hi
This is a very common problem with your model.
I tell you a series of steps for this.

1.take out the battery.dont connect the power cord.and push the power btton for a while so that all residue power is radiated.
then replace the battery,charge it and try start the machine again.if this doesnt work.

2.check the battery if its working fine.
if the battery is working fine then there is a problem with the charging IC on the motherboard.then

3.call the customer care and as your machine is new they will replace the motherboard for free.
if you find the solution helpful dun forget to rate me.
thnx

Power problems Inspirion 8600-battery not charging


Most Dell batteries have an LED indicator that allows users to see how much run time and how much overall battery life are available at the touch of a button.
To check battery charge, press the button and the number of lights that appear will tell you charge status. If all lights appear, you have a fully charged battery. Each light that appears accounts for approximately 20% charge.
To check the battery health, press and hold the status button on the battery charge gauge for at least 3 seconds. If no lights appear, the battery is in good condition and approximately more than 80 percent of its original charge capacity remains. Each light represents incremental degradation. If five lights appear, approximately less than 60 percent of the charge capacity remains, and you should consider replacing the battery
if the ac adapter will power the laptop without the battery installed its fine. if the cord is fine and your battery is fine its a mother board issue and it will most likely have to be replaced

One of three things, 1- power supply, check your power supply with an ohm meter to see f it's getting the proper output to the machine. If the supply is starving the machine of power the charging system won't work to it's full potential. 2- the power management system on the motherboard, if this system isn't working properly it can divert power from the charging system. If it's just glitched then a bios download or chipset utility download will fix it, if it's malfunctioning, then motherboard replacement is the only option. 3- the battery itself, I have a Dell, and in the past two years, I've ordered two new batteries. The first held a great charge, more than three hours, but only lasted about eight months. The second only holds little more than an hour charge, but has lasted well. Batteries are just funny that way. Start with the power supply test.

Laptop battery


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.

Battery back up is limited to 1 hour only


Did you do a full cycle charge when you got the Laptop? When you buy the Laptop you have to use the computer on battery till the battery dies and then charge battery for 12 hours and you repeat that another time. Most likely your battery it is damaged. Maybe you call the company and they might replace it for you.
