Re: power cord "outlet"?
Unfortunatly this is physical damage and I don't think they will take it back under warranty. I have fixed these myself, but I am good with a soldering iron. You could try a friend that is good with a soldering iron, and you trust. Or you could take it to a laptop repair place and have them change the main system board at cost.

Try plugging something else into those outlets and see if they work, or try plugging the mixer into an outlet that you know is working. If it still doesn't work it may be the plug on the mixer or broken wire on the power cord. Examine the power cord and look for any weak spots or damage to the cord or where the wires go into the plug. Usually the wires tend to break right where they go into the plug from bending or wear and tear. If that's the case all you need to do is buy a new plug cut the old one off and install the new plug.
Your not getting power? When you plug the laptop in does the Battery charge light come on? Are you getting power to the laptop? Do you have a multimeter to verify voltage from th AC outlet to the AC jack? Or ,the power gets to the laptop and push the on/off button you get no response? Or, you push the on/off button and the laptop starts then shut down? No lights, no leds blink. Remove battery, Try another cord/charger. Has it been dropped or damaged that would jar loose a connection, or pulled by the cord resulting in a damaged AC jack?
1.Plug the Inspiron's AC power cord into a power outlet and try to power on the laptop again. By far the most common cause of a laptop's not powering on is a dead battery. 2.Plug the AC adapter into a different outlet to check for a "dead" outlet. If you have the cable plugged into a surge protector, plug the cord into a different slot on the surge protector or "bypass" the surge protector by plugging the cable into an electrical outlet. If the Inspiron now powers on, replace the surge protector or have an electrician examine any "dead" outlets in the home. 3.Open the battery bay on the underside of the Inspiron by sliding the battery bay latch release lock upward and the battery bay latch release to the right. Once both latches are released, the battery bay should open. 4.Remove the battery. 5.Purchase a compatible replacement battery for laptop. Be aware that using an incompatible battery can cause damage to your computer. If you have any doubt as to compatibility, the best option is to purchase the replacement battery directly from your laptop's manufacturer. 6.Install the new battery by following the battery-removal procedure in reverse order. Once the new battery is installed, try again to power on the laptop. If there is still no power, seek professional repair advice.
the charging port and or motherboard is grounding out that is to say positive and negitive coming together wont damage the charger once you plug the charger out of thhe laptop and outlet then plug back to outlet the light will return has to be look at by a technician
your laptop battery is damage or your laptop adaptor...you can check the power cord your plugging to the outlet the testing it using a multi-tester...if your laptop adaptor is OK...proceed to your laptop which is the battery unplug it from your unit...there is a slider from the buttom or back of your unit for unplugging your battery,
Check these settings first. In a clear spot on the screen where no icons are, right click and go to properties, box opens and at top should list from R to L, themes-desktop-screensaver-appearance-advanced. click on screensaver, close to bottom click on power, another box should open, click on power schemes, make sure it's set to portable/laptop, and at bottom make sure settings for plugged in are are set to never. If it's not that then you have a bad power supply cord, or a bad power supply unit in laptop. If it's new and under warranty take it in and have replaced if not warrantied then will cost you about 100-150, just a guess!! hope this helps. But it sounds like the supply cord making the beeping noise might be bad. Make sure it's plugged all the way in as well.
