m1530 just did A09 downgrade but battery percentage doesn't change

I had the common battery is plugged in, but won't charge problem with a battery stuck at 4%

I made a USB disk to downgrade BIOS A12 to A09

I just completed the downgrade.

It says it's plugged in and charging but the percentage is still at 4% for about a half an hour now.

What else could this be? 

Or am I just having a case of impatience?

Check the BIOS setup -- is the AC adapter correctly identified (and is it a  Dell adapter)?

F2 at powerup.

Yes. It identified it as a 65w adapter. It is the original adapter as well. But upon hitting F2, the battery health part told me I need to replace the battery. If the battery is decreasing in function, would it explain why the percentage hasn't changed?

It sure would - the battery needs to be replaced.
