I bought a Lenmar replacement battery that is supposed to work my Dell XPS M1530. No matter what steps I take, the message "plugged in, not charging" appears and no charging of the replacement battery occurs. What can I do to get the computer to charge the nonDell battery?
I have the same problem with a non Dell battery and this is what I do.
Start the laptop without the charging cable plugged in so just on battery power. (this assumes your battery has enough charge to start the laptop, they usually do when you buy them) once the system comes up and is running you should be able to plug in the charger and it will charge the battery. Not sure if this will work with a non-original dell charger as they had a special pin configuration.
