Hi Natasha,

Unfortunately this is a common problem with current Dell laptops. The notebook checks whether or not you are using an official Dell charger, and if not then it refuses to charge the battery even though the laptop will still work. This means that if you are using a third party charger you will only be able to keep doing what you are doing.

If on the other hand it IS an official Dell adaptor then it is possible that the sensor in the adaptor is faulty. Either way if you want your battery to charge you will need to get the right adaptor from Dell.

I don't like the fact that Dell notebook work this way as there are many perfectly good third party adaptors on the market but at the moment there is no other way around this issue.

All the best
