try changing the battery. Sometimes the battery can be bad, not keeping a charge long enough to allow the computer to power on.
Try a new power cord. First thing is, there can be a short that intermittently causes the computer to show as charging, but it stops actually charging after letting go of the plug. Second, the cord is going bad and not allowing a full charge to go through.
Is the supply/power cord functional? Does an LED light up when it is plugged in? If not, the power cord is the issue, make sure the cord is fully seated into the supply and the supply cord to computer is fully seated.
If the LED comes on, the problem is the battery is likely at end of life. They have a cycle of about 400 charge/discharge cycles, less if left plugged in all the time.
You will need to buy another power cord for the exact model of your laptop. You can either find it in local computer stores, or you can search for it on ebay.com (usually search by laptop make & model, & usually buy from a top seller).
Sounds to me like the transformer circuit that enables the batery to charge. If you have bought your machine within the last 12 months it should still be covered by warranty so go back to the supplier. If not covered I wouod still try as it is not beyond reasonable expecations that the machine will operate perfectly in very way for more than 1 year.
Check the pin inside the connection (end of the cord) which you put into your machine, or check if the power connection on the circuitboard is damaged (you are able to wiggle it a little bit around)
Dell computer use the pin inside the connection from the adapter to recognise if the adapter you are using is a dell adapter or not. If the pin is damaged, or you are using an adapter from another brand. You will not be able to charge, but only power your pc.
the charging system on your motherboard has blown a capacitor, if it is still under warenty you should call 1-800-456-3355. to get it repaired. if it's out of warenty, they can help you buy the right part
