I have a DELL studio laptop and my battery suddenly went dead and wouldn't charge. So I bought an off brand battery and plugged it in. I got a message that stated my computer didn't know the model number of my battery so it's not going to charge it. I tried rebooting, but no luck. So I put in the old DELL original battery and got the same message. Now it shows "no battery detected" even though the original battery is back in. Any ideas how to make the new one work?
