You may be able to get a battery charger but its rare.
If you do wish to use the AC adapter, take care with positive and negative. Also the voltage of the battery is actually lower than the AC adapter in order to get charged. I don't know what is going to happen if you do choose to use AC adapter as battery. 75% chance that it will work.

1. It can be a screw loose inside the unit shorting something out.
2. The AC Port is damaged and needs to be re soldered.
3. Bad motherboard.
I've seen this be a bad motherboard more than not, however it has been the other 2 options from time to time. Most likely need to take it apart and you can see if it's the first 2 and if not than your board is bad.

SOURCE: battery and or charger
Hi you have mentioned
"Sometimes if I jiggle the AC adapter connection to the laptop when the battery icon starts flashing I can get it to continue working."
Looks like you have a lose jack on your notebook or the adapter itself....try to shake the connections when fitted to the notebook and check weather its the adapter or the note book jack....
If you dont have experience opening your notebook and soldering or soldering your adaptor end i suggest you take it to repair center
keep me posted

You have a defective regulating circuit on the mother board that will not allow charging or a broken connector pin at power connection .

Hello I own a Dell Inspiron 6400, i guess what happened was that it must have overheated of so but its on the screen your system automatically powered off because it became warmer than expected. This may have been caused by:o) operating or storing the system in an environment where ambient temperature is too high or o) obstructing the air flow from the system fan vents. if this problem recurs please call dell support with error code #M1004. strike the f1 key to continue. f2 to run the setup utility pressf5 to run onboard diagnostics.
