Windows 7: Battery icon is on one the next

Battery icon is on one the next

Hello Everyone!
(Just got a new replacement battery because my old one finally died)
As I'm writing this my battery status shows the charge. In about a minute, I'm assuming it will switch back to the red X status that says "No battery is detected"....
The icon switches back and forth constantly and can't decide weather to show my status, or lie to me and tell me there's no battery attached to my laptop.

I've read many threads about "no battery is detected" problems and I've done all the steps. New bios, detach and re-attach battery, uninstall and reinstall drivers, everything!!

Anyone ever heard of this?...

Sorry for the double post, but now the icon shows "batter is not detected" the whole time.

By the way, I have a Dell XPS m1530 laptop.
