I read Zach Baker's response to the battery charge question, but I have just bought a refurb'ed Lat e6410 that tells me that the battery is at 96% charge, the charger is plugged-in, but battery is not charging 

AND Fn + F2 or F3 does not remedy the problem....

Loaded MS WinPro 7 today......?

Sorry to here all the trouble you had when there was such a simple fix. Thank you for the advice before I started poring a lot of money in my Dell. I did order a new battery and found it still wouldn't charge. Function f2 was the answer. Why even have a function to not charge the battery? Maybe they are afraid leaving the power adapter plugged will destroy the battery over time? Gotta love tech support!

I was so happy to find this today! Ive tried everything to fix the  plugged in not charging message on e6410. One thing I read on a forum was tapping lightly near the Latitude markings up in the upper left hand corner.  Seemed to work for a while for some reason but quit working last week.  Can't believe it was as simple as Function F2 all along. Thank you
