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.

There is no such thing as a schematic for motherboards; if there was one that wasn't proprietary, it would be about the size of your living room, there are literally millions of components involved.
The best you are likely to find is a block diagram of the board with a few discrete components shown such as capacitors a a backup battery.
The board layouts are generally available from the board mfr.s and your motherboard probably was not designed or made by Dell.
If the board is in a working unit, you can download Belarc Advisor (free) which will give you excruciating details about your system, including the board mfr. and model number:
If the board isn't functional, Dell might tell you who made the board or there may be a manual available for the system that contains this info.

Restart your laptop and keep tapping F8 key the moment you see something on the screen. You will get a black screen with some options written in white. Select the option Safe mode and then you can create a new user with admin rights. Or else at the windows login screen press and hold ctrl and alt key and tap delete key twice and then it will take you to a login screen. Dont put any password there just hit enter. And you will be able to login with admin rights.
