I have a Lenovo Thinkpad t530, and it doesn't use the battery, it also doesn't charge the battery. I have tried taking the battery out and starting with only the ac cable, then deleting all the battery drivers from my computer, then restarting it with the battery in, I have also tried taking the battery and ac cable out and holding the power button for 30 seconds and it still wont work. Then I have tried resetting the BIOS and that doesn't work.

Welcome to the forum.
From the description it sounds like the battery may be dead. If that's the original battery it wouldn't be unusual on a 6 year old system.
Go to Lenovo Vantage or ThinkPad Power Management and see what they report about the condition of the battery.
