SOURCE: Dell Power Supply
You can test the power supply using a multimeter. I use a paper clip to get in the middle if my multimeter probe is too large. If there isn't any power but the light on the power brick is on (if there is one) then there is most likely a break in the cable. In any case turn to eBay for a replacement, should be quite easy and inexpensive to find. Or you could pay more and get one from Dell. Companies like APC and Targus make usniversal adapters but they're expensive and not optimal.

SOURCE: DELL XPS M140 POWER ISSUE
I am claudus_07 and i was a Dell - XPS Technical Support Specialist before so i will be glad to assist you with your concern.
As you said into your post, you tried plugging the AC Adapter to the power source without plugging the other end into the XPS laptop and the Green Light on the adapter is lit. But when you plug the jack on the laptop, the Green light is out. As for my experience on your laptop, there could be a problem with the power supply or the motherboard of your XPS laptop. Because everytime you plug the adapter to the laptop, the green light is going out so it means that the laptop or the adapter is grounded.
Here's what you need you to:
Step 1: Call Dell XPS Technical Support 1-800-624-9896
Step 2: Tell them the issue and the things that youve done.
Step 3: At the end of the troubleshooting, i know that the Technician will either replace the Power Supply, Motherboard, or the Adapter. (if you have a friend that has a Adapter same as yours, you may try to use it just to isolate the issue the Technician will choose from the Power Supply or the motherboard)
Step 4: If the Technician replaces the power supply and the issue still persists, call technical support again and ask them to replace the motherboard, no need to repeat the troubleshooting steps anymore just tell them that youre already done with it. (Dont ask for a system exchange, because i know that they will not give what you want.)
I know it will work. Be Positive!
Your good rating will be very much appreciated.
Good luck and thank you!

SOURCE: Mac Ibook Power supply problem
On Mac iBooks the orange light comes on when it charges the battery. Once the battery is charged it turns green. Im guessing the other powersupply was aftermarket or broken. EIther way, if it starts out green - recognizes the battery isnt full - turns orange for a while - then turns green when the battery is full, then the computer and powersupply are working perfectly. Enjoy your iBook!

SOURCE: not charging
I found out how to solve this problem...first power down your computer. Then take out the battery, remove the power supply, and then hold down the power button for 30 secs. Put the power supply in only (not the battery). Start your computer after everything is done loading up put the battery back in. Give it a min. and then you should be able to roll your cursor over the battery life indicator in the lower right corner of you computer and is should say charging. I have found that other people have had this problem and it has worked for myself and for them.
