Issues with charging notebooks. Is it the AC adapter, the battery or the system itself bios flash?

inspiron 1520 says no charger connected, have 5 running dell's 1721, 1721, 1520, 1521 all inspiron, so I know charger is ok, and so is battery.

runs for hours with 100% battery, so it is getting power just doesn't it.

tec says its a bios problem, bios program says it can,t update without battery and charger connected.

how do you flash bios while computer thinks its on battery power?????

Flashing bios with that issue can lead to dead laptop.
