    I just bought a new replacement dell inspiron 1545 laptop battery,and works with power supply disconnected from computer,however it shows x in battery icon,and reads no battery detected,this is a windows 7 system and a dell laptop,any suggestions on how to get my pc to read or recognize this new battery? it also shows that it cannot read model number of battery during startup so no charging can be done??

    1. If it is a non Dell battery it is quite common that some cheaper alternatives are not detected


    2. Go F2 setup on post (think it is F2 on a dell - enter BIOS scroll across to power options look for battery learning function or something similarly worded
    Enter that and see if there is a choice for enable etc.
    If so select, save and exit
    Reboot and test
