Dell laptop battery refusing to charge?

The other day I came across a very informative blog post explaining the intricacies of Dell's recent laptop chargers.

Like some other manufacturers (HP/Compaq for example), Dell have implemented a method of detecting whether or not a genuine Dell charger has been connected to the laptop. If the Dell laptop does not detect a genuine Dell charger, the laptop reports The AC power adapter type could not be determined.

If this is the case, the laptop disables charging of the battery (although the charger can still be used to power the laptop from the mains).
