Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
Is the new power supply a Dell. Some aftermarket power supplies, especially Targus, will not charge the battery in a Dell. If it is a Dell supply, then it's one of two things. 1- the battery is shot and needs replacing. 2- the power management chip on the motherboard is shot and the motherboard needs replacing. If the battery light is flashing orange then the battery is shot. If the battery light is green, then go into the power settings and see if the machine shows that it is charging. If it doesn't show that it's charging then it's the pm chip.

Does your laptop go on just plugged in? If not it could be the power jack has broken inside. Cheap part, but VERY expensive to repair unless you do it yourself. A repair shop will charge around 300.00 or more for the repair.
Read this, and it will give a example of how to do it.
