12/19/2008 After working normally for about 8 months laptop now operates perfectly with AC adapter but will not charge either the old or brand new batteries. Battery symbol came on green for a minute or so after I installed the new battery but I didn't turn on machine for a couple of hours and now the symbol is out and the machine quit's instantly when the adapter is unplugged. This problem happened lierally over night.

The same exact thing is happening to my Inspiron 9300. Did you get it repaired? After reading lots of forums, changing AC adaptors and ordering a new battery, I came to the conclusion that it is the plug on the laptop that is not working.
1. remove all external peripherals
2. try to use ac adapter alone check if laptop will power on.
3. put back batt in with ac adapter.
4. check bios (power on laptop keep tap on F2)
5. check for the bios version, battery info and battery health.
6. check if batt is 0% or 10% charge
7. check battery health and info if the ac adapter is determine or not. also check if batt is performing normally.
8. if batt has 10% charge then download the latest bios for your system. download it from support.dell.com
sounds like your charging circuit isn't working or the adapter isn't putting out enough power or amprage to fully charge the battery, or you battery went bad. if the charging circuit is bad then so is *********** board, time to burry the system and buy a new one
Remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter. With the AC adapter unplugged from the system, plug it into the wall, see if the power LED comes on. If it does, plug it into the system and see if it goes out. If the LED never comes on, or goes out when connected to the system, replace the AC adapter.
If the LED stays one, see if the system will power on and give any indications of power at all (Flashing Caps Lock, Scrool Lock, Num Lock LEDs) If no power indication with a good ac adapter connected, then the motherboard is the next item to replace.
Either item listed above can prevent the battery from charging. So the battery is the last item I'd replace unless the system turns on with the battery out of the system.
