Very likely a problem with the connection between the power pack and the laptop itself. This is usually the weakest point, and often you need to wiggle the connection a little to get a good connection.
It is usually just a solder joint that breaks, but it is a lot of work to get fixed on most laptops so get it replaced under warranty.

Does not switch on from mains.?????????????
Is the laptop lights not coming on when you plug it in? If not refer to the following.
Are you sure that your power plug has not broken loose. You will have to take the laptop apart to find this out. Sometimes the solder joint will come loose. Do not take this laptop apart unless you know what you are doing. The manual can give you step by step directions sometimes. It is not easy to take it apart without breaking the little things. If you do take it apart, take pictures of every step and take notes and even draw picture so you will know where everything goes. You can touch the plug where it is soldered and re-solder the plug. Please be careful. This takes someone with good solder skills to do.

Instead of spending alot of time trying to do something that could potentially harm your laptop..why not just buy a power supply?
You can get one here Click here for about 16 dollars. That's a great deal they are usually about $60 and its a Dell brand not some off brand.

Motherboard is bad and will have to be replaced unless of course the AC Jack on the back of the laptop is loose. That would cause the ac adapter not to charge and then you would have to take the motherboard out and put solder on each leg on the bottom of the ac jack to make sure it stays in place then the ac adapter can charge the battery properly.
Even going thru the solder method the motherboard could still be bad and have nothing to do with the ac jack.

well either you have a bad battery, or a bad charger, or your ACPI settings are not correct in BIOS, you must check each one, First you must check the Power Adapter, usually with a multimeter set to Volts DC and see if it the same as what is written on power supply, Next check the batteries voltage with a meter and see if that is OK, really the only real way is to substitute the battery, and expensive guess? Also as said check your ACPI settings are OK in BIOS and Windows power settings too. Use your manual for reference.
