This happened to me as well. I did some research online and found that it is a common complaint for the AC adapters that come with these laptops. Basically, the wiring is very fragile, and the adapters only tend to last a year or two. Unfortunately, you will probably need to buy a new adapter.

SOURCE: AC adapter not recognized
The AC adapter has a small wire in the center of the connector to the system. This sensing wire, if bent or broken will cause the error you mention.
Check the inside of the connector, since it is new, you can call Dell 800-624-9896 for a replacement adapter.

there is a small metal inside the dc socket that you need to pull towards the centre so i makes better contact with the charger

Sounds like a problem with the power jack on the Motherboard. If so, it is possible to remove the board and replace the jack but this requires soldering skills and is probably not something the average person would want to try.
You might try another adapter to be sure but if it is a motherboard problem the best solution is probably to junk it and buy a new laptop.
