The power supply seems to be fine, the battery does not charge, and the laptop will no longer boot up. somehow looks like something went wrong inside the laptop so that the external power does not get to the Laptop, nor to the battery to charge it. Is this a common error with the Dell Latitude X1?
I had this problem just last week; the solution for my X1 was very simple. The problem was the power cord, which had worn out. The adapter was working, but the frayed cord never got the power to the computer. Before you try anything else, try replacing the power cord--it's cheap, easy, and may well work for you too! Good luck!

As a rule this indicates a low battery or a failing battery. If you charge it and it drains quickly, it needs replacement. When getting a new battery (power cells), fully charge it overnight and use it until it drains completely. Once it is recharged for 24 hours, the batter will obtain a memory and last longer.
If the other laptop can't see the network, then it sounds like you somehow turned off SSID broadcasting while you were in the router's settings. Log back into your router and look for the SSID broadcast enable setting. Make sure it is set to on, then save the changes and reset the router if you have to. The laptop should be able to see it now. (There is also a setting in the Windows wireless network properties that you can check to connect to a network even if it is not broadcasting, as long as you have connected to it previously.)
The Dell Latitude X1 laptop has a 53 WHr 6 Cell Lithium Ion Battery. Your safest bet is to purchase a replacement battery from Dell directly, in order to avoid confusion and mismatched parts. The Dell Part number for your battery is Dell Part# : 312-0342. The Manufacturer Part# : Y6457. The cost is 135.99 from Dell directly. While you may be able to find a battery elsewhere for cheaper, it is not recommended.
Well I had the same problem with my Dell Latitude D600. I tried many batteries, fully charged, partially charged and even i tried scenarios with AC Power On or Off. Nothing really seemed to work as my laptop was both hot and cold. I noticed this problem was coming specially when laptop is cold.
The Solution is found is, when i have this problem, i press the power button and then move the rotate the laptop, so that its screen touches the desk and keybord is upright verticle, i know it sounds ODD, but it really made my life so easier as now this problem doesnt haunt me. and it will boot on first, second or third go.
Normal Laptop Condition with keybord down and LCD Open
You need to move the laptop in one of the following if it is having boot problem again
keybrd \ / lcd
or put the lcd down flat while keeping the keyboard in the same position as above.
