If you are able to test the voltage at the tip of the charger unit and it has the correct voltage and supplied amps.....then I would say that the DC port on the laptop may be failing. The center of the jack which carries the positive charge to the motherboard can be damaged over time by normal use from the charger being plugged in and moved during normal everyday use. The problem may be alleviated by changing out the DC port.

Dell Inspiron 6000 won't charge


Since you have already replaced the battery and the laptop works with the AC charger, then probably the charge circuit in the system board (mother board) is bad. I have rarely seen an AC charger that will power the laptop but not charge the battery. 99% of the time, if it is not the battery, it is the system board.

Dell Inspiron Laptops spontaneously shutdown often


sounds like the battery is going bad. how long do they run before they die?

I would recommend looking at the power conservation settings in the control panel and adjusting them to reduce power consumption. You should also lower the lighing level in the room so the stundents can reduce the brightness of the laptop screen...that is a huge power saver.

Dell Inspiron 5150 no power, no lights


it could be that the ports where you plug in the charger is damaged. if you have an identical or a known good battery that is charged, try to install that and check if it works. you need a motherboard replacement if the system works with a charged battery.

Can't charge battery or run off AC


You may have a problem in the DC charge circuitry. These parts are located on the moatherboard directly and can't be bought separately and repaired. You must send your Dell to a specialised service to have it fixed by them. Sorry, I can't see no other way for this problem to be solved.
