The battery has 5 small dots in it. Those are there for no reason. Those are actually LED lights. There's a button you can press. If we number the lights 1-2-3-4-5 with 1 being closest to the button, check the lights when you press the button. If 1-3-5 are lit, that means that you have a dead battery and needs to be replaced. Other than that, you're battery might still be working but nearing the end of its life. Goto support.dell.com -> drivers and downloads -> enter your service tag or system type -> download Dell Quickset. Once Quickset is installed, it will diagnose your battery automatically and let you know if your battery already needs a replacement. It is just sad that batteries are covered with a separate 1-year warranty only. You can also go to www.dellbatteryprogram.com and check if your battery was part of the Dell Battery Recall Program.

Sounds like you might have a bad dc power jack. ifyou wiggle the jack around where it plugs in on the computer, does the powr light come on?

The loose connection for the AC adapter means the motherboard needs to be replaced or the AC adapter jack on the motherboard needs to be replaced. (With Labor, it is about the same cost to buy a new motherboard as it is to have the old one fixed)
Motherboards are available on EBay for around $100

In some cases batteries tend to not charge up because one of the cells are damaged or drained to the point that they will not charge at all.
In other cases it can be the power board on the laptop motherboard itself which can have gone faulty, the only way to tell is to obtain another battery (preferably new) and see if it will charge the new one, if it does then you know that the battery is faulty, if it doesn't then you will have to take the laptop into a shop to be looked at.
This is the only way you are going to be able to work out which one of the two is the cause.
Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
