Dell Notebook Battery Not Detected Problem?

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and it says the battery isnt detected but it is in and I'm not using the adaptor and its still working so i dont think theres a problem with the battery. Anyone know whats wrong? :o and when i plug the adapter in it says not charging but apparently it is . Is there anyway to fix this?


This isnt a Dell brand battery because the one that came with it burnt out last year so i bought a new one that was compatible. It used to detect it when i first bought it but then suddenly stopped.

    The fact that it is not the same battery is why. As long as the battery works, there is no problem. The computer just couldn't verify the battery. Nothing to be worried about if what you wrote is correct
