Hmmm, check out the port where you plug in the charger. Has the internal pin been bent or pushed in? I've seen that happen on other devices. If you have access to another charger try that ... it *may* have a slightly longer reach ... the manufacturing tolerances are tight .. but there may be a slight difference between units.

Cheers,
Ripface.

When i remove my charger, the laptop turns off.


As lond as the battery is still accepting charge from the charger and will run ok on a battery, I wouldn't worry. Pulling the AC power cord isn't a good idea when the laptop is running anyway.

However, what you describe sounds like a dead battery that will no longer accept a charge. Even a battery showing 100% charged can still fail, as it drains in seconds if dead. What kills most batteries is leaving them in the laptop afetr they have charged and running on ac power.

Sometimes the Adapter Charges other times Doesnot, and now finally out, cant charge!


Possible cuase:
1 AC adapter failure
2 Power jack failure

First replace it with another working charger, see if the problem gone. If not, there may be strong possibility that the power jack was broken.

Here below are some common symptoms of a bad charger.
-The laptop only runs when you keep the power cord in a certain direction.
- The laptop only runs on battery power.
- The laptop will not charge the battery.
- The laptop switches from AC power to battery power intermittently.
- The unit suddenly shuts off
- Sparks come out of the back of the laptop.

Charger not recognized


Folks.
The issue with most of the Dell charger issues rekated to a new charger not being able to charge the battery is the fact that Dell has a screwy proprietary circuit design in their laptops and chargers.
It seems that the Dell laptops are designed so
only Dell chargers will work. While other
brands of chargers will power the laptop when plugged in,
they will not charge the battery.
They do this so they have a monopoly on their chargers and thus can charge a frickin' fortune for their, Dell chargers.
Want them to change this? don't buy Dell products for a while. If enough people ban them, they would change this **** overnight!
