First off start with cheap, Replace the external powersupply, (the ac power cables and company) 

Second, Replace the battery. However if it dosn't show the lights atall when it's plugged in it must not be the battery. Because even without the battery a light should come on saying the laptop is plugged in.

Finnaly what I think the problem probably consists of:
You most-likely need to get your computer repaired by someone, There's mostlikely a fault in the internal power supply. that charges the battery. I'm guessing maybe a little fuse or something popped and you need it replaced. But best get a professional to do it instead of someone who knows nothing.

No power battery flashes 4 orange


If it is orange or is blinking orange, the battery charge is low or expended. Remove the battery and re-install it. Plug in the AC adapter and connect it to an outlet. Turn on the computer.

When the battery status light blinks green and orange, the battery temperature is too hot for charging. Shut down the laptop, detach the AC adapter, and allow the laptop and battery to return to room temperature before attempting to charge the battery.

If the battery status light blinks orange rapidly, the battery itself may be defective.

Dell Inspiron 6000 won't charge


Since you have already replaced the battery and the laptop works with the AC charger, then probably the charge circuit in the system board (mother board) is bad. I have rarely seen an AC charger that will power the laptop but not charge the battery. 99% of the time, if it is not the battery, it is the system board.

Dell inspiron 5150 do not come on when the power button pressed


If you remove the battery and disconnect power cord, then hold power button for 20 seconds, then reconnect power cord but do not re-insert battery, and the unit powers on okay, the problem may be your battery. If there is still an intermittent problem, the power connector inside the unit may be loose and need re-soldering, or you could have a bad power supply.

Dell Inspiron 6400 Battery


your miracle,most laptop batteries have a life span of 4 years tops,but that if you take care of it,but most dont realize over charging kills the cells in your battery,and if you have it plugged up make sure you go into power settings and put it on ac/dc power settings.and if you have it away from home without power,put it on best battery settings,and let the power die all the way down before recharging,that will give it a full charge lasting longer.but as for your battery it might be time for a new one

Can't charge battery or run off AC


You may have a problem in the DC charge circuitry. These parts are located on the moatherboard directly and can't be bought separately and repaired. You must send your Dell to a specialised service to have it fixed by them. Sorry, I can't see no other way for this problem to be solved.
