Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
We have an Inspirion 6000 with this problem and we've discovered if you pull the power cord out very slightly and lift it upwards, the charging icon appears in the system tray.
This sounds like a connection issue inside the computer. What this means is that the soldering inside your computer at the point of connection is probably weakened, and you will need to take your computer in for repair if you are not very good at soldering. Unless you are VERY talented at soldering, I do not suggest doing this repair yourself as you can damage or ruin your computer.
Alternatively, there may be a loose pin or something of the sort at the point where you plug your adaptor in. Again, this is something that needs to be looked at by a professional.

my friend has a latitude d600 that has the power port messed up in the back of the computer. i got him this thing, some people call it a docking station some people call it a port replicator, but you dock the computer to it and then you plug your power into the docking station and it charges it that way. you get extra usb ports and stuff like that and there is no repair involved. i dont know if you would want to try something like that maybe.

Check your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs
into the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the
jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to
take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the
motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.
