Got a friends 3 year old Insipiron 6000, battery looks to charge ok but on its own its empty.

System Setup, however, says no primary battery exists?

New Battery? or can anyone suggest recondition of the existing one? (and how)

My colleague met the same problem with you, at first he thought it might be the problem of the battery, then he bought a new battery but it still dosen't work. So he asked the Dell customer service for some professional advices and was told it's the problem of the mainboard. But it's much better to choose a new laptop than replace the mainboard, because the latter choice might be expensive and troublesome.
Therefore, he is now planning to buy a new laptop.
