Question about Dell Studio 17 (1749) Laptop black - Windows 7 Home Premium, 64bit, Intel Core i3-350M 2.26GHz, 3 gb... PC Notebook
Will not charge and the battery and charger\adapter power cord are brand new.
Great story, but I feel your pain. There are so many times people think that just because they bought it new it works. Not true at all.

Had the same problem, My other Dell charger would work fine but the original one that came with this laptop would throw an error message that the Charger wasnt recognized. None of the suggestions on the forums worked.
I held the chord by the circular flex thing at the end, and pushed in the power pin with force into the laptop, held it for a few seconds and now it works fine. If you push the pin slow and gently into the laptop, it doesnt recognize the adapter. I think the problem is either with the power chord connections inside or with the adapter inside the laptop. Try it!

2 possible causes, faulty adapter or faulty motherboard. try to update the BIOS if applicable. If this does not work, attempt to test the adapter on another laptop to confirm if it is working, or try a confirmed working adapter with your laptop. If same issue with another adapter, or if your adapter works with another laptop, it will be a motherboard problem. If the adapter fails on another laptop or if another adapter works with your laptop, you'll need to get a new adapter. Hope this sheds some light. Feel free to rate the usefulness of the information.
