Go to the Dell website and download the manual for your laptop.

Read the manual.

This will answer some of your questions.
I was on the Dell website and see the manual, but again was not helpful

01. Turn off laptop.

04. Replace AC power.
05. Turn on laptop, allow OS to boot.
06. Once logged in to the machine, perform a normal shut down.
07. Unplug AC power.
08. Replace battery.
09. Replace AC power.
10. Turn on laptop, allow OS to boot. The battery should once again be charging as normal.

Hope this helps
+1 for these instructions
Unless your power brick is damaged and not providing enough voltage. I would follow the above steps, if this dosent fix the problem i would borrow another power brick to confirm yours is faulty.

Okay, because it doesn't have other solutions to fix the problem, probably or 95 % must buy new power brick. I tried very solutions but that is not helpful to fix the problem :S

The point in the reading the article I pointed to in my earlier post was that this sort of situation has been reported on and investigated by Microsoft and they have given an explanation of why the problem occurs. They have also explained why the symptoms were not seen using XP...its well worth the read. The upshot is , that if your system is reporting that you should consider replacing your battery, you would be advised to take the advice. Sorry for the bad news , but thats the advice....

Go to device manager and expand batteries. Right click Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery and uninstall it. Then reboot your laptop(it will automatically reinstall the driver) and hopefully it will say it is charging.
