Having problems with your Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook ?
Battery not recognized
\015 I have a Inspiron B130. My computer won't recognize the battery. When I look at the battery info it says that there isn't a battery even though the battery is clearly plugged in. Is there a way to fix this problem besides buying a new battery.\015
If the battery is beyond charging, it might not be recognized but, all that I've seen could recognize it . There are 6-8 terminals on most batteries. 2 of them close the circuit indicating a battery is in place. If you have access to another battery that is made for your computer, try it. If you still don't have a battery indicated, you could have a problem in the charging system or the bios.
It sounds like it is a hardware problem, which hopefully is just the battery. Just to rule out a software issue, though, you should go into the BIOS when you start up the computer (it should say "press F2 to enter setup", or maybe DEL or F10 or something else). Most dell laptops will show in the BIOS if there is a battery installed - see what it says. If it does show one, but Windows doesn't, you have a software problem. Otherwise, I would try a new battery.
