But the battery is still charging as normal,the only thing is unplugged,it only last's about 50/60 min's but that is ok for me as i mostly have it plugged in.
I was told on a dell forum that to get rid of the warning i should upgrade the bios, but that is where i'm having trouble.
Keeping your BIOS up to date will ensure that all the components in your system are working as efficiently as they can and minimize errors and subsequent downtime caused by BIOS bugs.
While most of us do better than this the ONE THING you must do is to replace any failing battery before it kills the charging circuits. I kept getting a warning about the battery when I booted up my laptop.
HOWEVER 30 minutes is NORMAL for those Pentium 4 based machines which I don't think the 1501 came equipped with. I saw a fix on your sight that said to download a new bios driver from dell and I did. I had the same problem with the message saying battery not recognised and I foolishly ignored it for quite a while!
