First off, do you have a way to check the output of the ac adapter to ensure it's putting out the correct current?
If you've done that and have a multimeter handy, you can remove the battery, system off, and check the charge pins for current/voltage. I believe one of the end pins is neg (ground) and at least one of the other pins should show 2.6-3.6V, as well as other various voltages. If you fail to get any response at the charger pins, we'll need to look at the board circuitry, assuming again that the ac adapter is operating properly.

SOURCE: my batter wont charge.
first you need to check that is the light on the power cord on the adapter is coming if yes then it is supplying the current to teh machine and it is not charging the battery then mother board needs to be replaced if the light on the adapter is not coming up then need to chage the adapter .

SOURCE: new battery wont charge back up
there is a problem with your charger. dell chargers have a habit of blowing. there is a small chip in them that tells the computer that it is ok to charge the batery, that little "safety feature" blows out and will no longer charge your battery. you will have to buy a new charger, either at a store like best buy (make sure it specificly says it is compatible with dell) or go to the dell website to order an "official" one. both options are unfortunately a little expensive, but your only option. i had the same problem with my xps1330.

SOURCE: will not charge battery
If you are not getting any thing when just the charger is plugged in and either no battery or the battery is dead, but the system will run on a fully charged battery. There may be a problem with the motherboard that a DC jack replacement will not help.. some of the traces sandwiched in the mid-plain on the mother board might have corroded away and need to be bypassed .. check my blog for pictures on how this can be done. http://cegeekbook.blogspot.com/2010/07/gateway-ma7-mx6930-no-power-will-not.html
