Is the ac adapter the one that come with this laptop?
it might be the ac adapter has got a fault with it.
take the battery out of the laptop and then plug your ac adapter in and see if you can switch your laptop on.
if it does come on with the battery out then it might be the battery thats at fault.

I would verify that the battery will take a charge. If the battery is bad, the charger will tell you that it is not charged. It will not tell you why, just that it is not charged. If not plugged into the computor,again, battery is not charged. Hence, the beep.
Good Luck and hope this helps.

Had the same problem, My other Dell charger would work fine but the original one that came with this laptop would throw an error message that the Charger wasnt recognized. None of the suggestions on the forums worked.
I held the chord by the circular flex thing at the end, and pushed in the power pin with force into the laptop, held it for a few seconds and now it works fine. If you push the pin slow and gently into the laptop, it doesnt recognize the adapter. I think the problem is either with the power chord connections inside or with the adapter inside the laptop. Try it!

try running ur laptop using the adaptor without the battery in it's place and run it with just the battery...note the difference....it may be a power surge/short issue....some times the battery is supplying power along with the adaptor to the notebook and the power circuit in there is not able to take dual power....check your power options setting in Control Panel...
also do this

I have a new gateway laptop with windows 7 and today it said plugged in not charging 8%. I tried everything and nothing worked so I turned it off and unplugged it and took the battery out and put it back in and it started charging...hopefully this works.

This is possibly an internal power Supply fault. take the battery out, plug in the adapter, IF the unit works now, you have A: A battery problem, or B: a charging circuit problem. If the unit still fails to work, the power supply in the PC has faulted. You need to get a "Quote: for a repair.
