I've changed the adapter wit a new one from hama with the same characteristics but also the message are the same and the baterry not charging.
Please help me !!!!!!!
Seems pretty simple then doesn't it? If it's not the adapter....it's most likely your battery. Hopefully you're still under warranty so they can tell you that your warranty doesn't cover your battery, I just had the similar issue with a Studio XPS. My battery lasted 3 years..not the greatest life ever..but far from the worst. Replace your battery and it will fix your problem, if not, you have a main board issue that will need to be fixed. But my bet is that it is your battery.
I had the same problem with my dell inspiron 5010. The problem is most likely with the connector on the back of the laptop. There are 3 type of connectors, +19.5v, ground and sense.
I resolved it by bending the pins towards outside leaving the center pin (sense) free.
