Answers :

Does the laptop power up just no charge the battery? If the laptop does not power on then you may have a bad power supply in the unit. If it does power up than you most likely have a bad battery connector of blown fuse on the motherboard. The flashing of the BIOS is done with a bootable cd or floppy but this will not keep the new battery from charging. The reason Dell states that you need at least 10% battery to flash a BIOS is because if your AC power goes out while you are doing a BIOS upgrade and you don't have battery power the BIOS will be incomplete and your laptop will not boot again without replacing the motherboard.
