New battery plugged in but not charging

August 5, 2011 at 11:23:56
Specs: Windows 7, dual core
I changed the old battery to a new replacement one , the leptop doesn't charge it and shows a message "no battery ", also the charging led blinks . The old battery charges and works so the problem seems to be something in the software (blocking the charging ??) or the battery itself.
But I tried to use the new replacement battery and the leptop works for a while so the problem is not the battery contacs.The leptop is DELL VOSTRO 1015
Thanks a lot

Either bad battery or bad laptop.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Jefro thanks,
I think the problem is something in the software,because the battery is new and the laptop charges the old battery.
The only thing different is that the replacement battery capacity is 5200mAH instead the original Dell - 4400mAH. But the seller (Deal extreme) said that it is compatible with my lap model ...
