Battery Laptop Problem Preventing Boot up

My Dell M1530 will not boot up fully---gets to password and then hangs.I know my battery is done--no lights on battery indicator and battery won't charge up when machine is connected to mains. However,should it not work on mains only? It is not doing so at present---just goes to password stage and refuses to complete. Does anyone know why? Does it need a working battery as well as mains?

Any help much appreciated.
