The problem with your solution is that my Inspirion refuses to run the BIOS update because my battery is at less than 10 percent. It tells me to charge my battery first.
Well, okay... I can't because I need the update to get my adapter to work again.
I've tried downloading the BIOS to fix the plugged in not charging problem, but, it says your AC adapter needs to be plugged in and the battery has to be above 10% and I'm always at 0% please help I really need a fix to this so my battery could work again
I had bougth dell laptop last 2 years. model-dell inspiron 5520,os-win-7 home basic 64 bit (services pack-1).I beg to state that fixid battery problem(0% available plugged in,not charging)

My battery is 6% and it is not charging although my charger is plugged in.. also my laptop has touch screen.. and the touching screen keeps touch its self. All that just happened today suddenly.
thanks this was very useful, in future please share more problems and resolutions you have achieved. this helped me fix my laptop
This worked for me as well. My dell laptop (which is less then 6 months old) was only registering that it was plugged in for a brief second, then the plug icon went away. First I tried another dell power cord and it did the same thing. So then I found this post, did what this poster suggested and now it's working fine again. I was super mad for a minute thinking I needed a new laptop already.
Thank you so much for the bios update idea. I tried taking the battery out and back in and doing the uninstall of the battery drivers and restarting, but nothing was working.
I had to use "auto detect" for the site to find my machine, then I was offered the updates. I didn't even have to restart my computer! It suggested six updates, and after the first update was complete (bios) the battery started saying, "plugged in and charging again."
Thanks Pamela -- had the same issue on my Inspiron 5520. Tried a "lite version" of your approach:
Thanks for the "Inspiron-ation". emoticon.BigSmile.title
