Replace the charger, it probably overheat and died.
Try with a voltmeter to measure the output power (usually aroud 19 V DC)
Then the tricky part, try to power something else with the charger , something who might work with the output power (a car light bulb for exemple).
If it does work then you have a short cut on the motherboard of your laptop if it's the case replace the laptop, it's the hell of a job to repair the motherboard...
good luck

My dell latitude d510 is not charging and i the icon is not on it


Take the battery out and wait a few minutes. Then place it back in and see if the light to the battery charging indicator goes on.
Check the plug that goes into the laptop from the charger. Look to see if it's frayed or has exposed parts. My need a new charger.

Inspiron 1501 charging problem


should find out why the original charger stopped working in the first place... was it a faulty mother board really. anyway if the ratings on the charger you bought are for that laptop indeed, then it should power up the laptop minus the battery. ofcourse if you put in charger minus battery, dont expect it to show the charging led..just try to power it on
Regards

My wife's laptop stopped working today. It won't boot up. The power doesn't go on at all. When I plus the power cord in, the green light on the charger goes out. I'm wondering if something fried.


Hello,
Green light of the charger off means there is a short circuit, maybe exactly at the plug, so battery is impossible to charge. If not this, smth probably has fried.

Charging problem


It's definitely the motherboard based on the symptoms. You can send it to their out of warranty depot. Or you can purchase the motherboard from their spare parts sales dept, then look for a local tech who can install it for you.
