It sounds like you probably have a problem with your battery.  Is it possible to get another one to test.

Does the power indicator button on the battery work?  It's possible that the battery's built in computer went bad (somehow) and is not able to communicate with the ACPI of the computer.

We have lots of Dell D620/630's and the battery rarely lasts much more than 1 year (must be why Dell only warrant them for 1 year and the Laptop for 3)....when they do fail they just go suddenly like a light bulb failing...if the pushbutton lights on the battery itself don't work I'd say it has failed.  Sometimes you also get each alternate chage LED flashing- that's also a faulty battery....
