Hello. I recently saw a problem you posted and was wondering have you solved this issue? I am also having the same problem and am going on vacation soon so I would like to be able to run it on battery power. I was most likely going to bring it to Best Buy and let Geek Squad take a look at it, but I figured I would see if there is an easy fix before i go there. Thanks a lot for the help

Absolutely this is the issue with motherboard.The repair charges could be confirmed by a local repair vendor only.Probably this is the issue which is not permanently curable so better to go with a new MB.
Please try the following DIY to find the issue:
1.Remove the battery and press the utton for 30 seconds and then plug the adaptor and run on ac mode without battery and if it is powering on then issue is with battery.
2.Refix the battery and check whether power LEDs are blinking.
If not in both the cases this is the issue with the MotherBoard and you will have to contact either DELL or any repair vendor.
Dell laptops use proprietary power supply adapters. Inside the adapter there is a communication device telling the laptop the power supply is a genuine dell product. Which in turn allows the battery to charge. Anyways it appears that your charger is having problems. You should probably try to locate one local (from friend or computer repair shop) to test. if you try a good one with no problems, then just get on Ebay and get you a genuine dell charger. they are about 40-60 dollars. Or try calling dell.
If trying a known good charger doesn't correct the issue, you could have broken solder pins on the power jack inside the laptop.
If this helps you solve you issue please rate my solution.
