Question about Dell Computers & Internet
I bought the laptop in march and never had a problem and the other day it just would not come on, I went and bought a new ac adapter cord. And that's not the problem it's still not coming on.
If the laptop shows absolutely no sign of life in spite of using a new power supply the cause is probably something electrical or electronic inside has failed.
As it is only 5 - 6 months old it should still be covered by the warranty so you should return it to the supplier for repair or replacement as soon as possible.

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.

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
