Answers :

If even a new battery is not getting charges this could be a possible motherboard issue. Try charging the battery on another laptop and once it is more than 10 % charges go to www.dellsupport.com and get the latest BIOS for the computer. You might have to save and right click on the file and select RU NAS ADMINISTRATOR in Vista. If the issue is the same after the BIOS update it surely is a motherboard issue. If in warranty Dell will replace the board.
