Hi I just waiting your answer. you need do
1) check your adapter carefully there is a small centre pin in the DC jack hole, if you can not find it, your adapter centre pin broken, this case is very common. you should know this pin respond the motherboard start charging. so you need change a good adapter which with a centre pin. it should be fixed
2) if still no charging, you need check the DC socket centre pin circuit on the motherbopard which is charging control or find a technician to repair.
hope help you fix it, any question send any time if you have.

Unplug the battery from the laptop and then plug the AC adaptor into the laptop. If the green light still goes off then your motherboard is shorting out the adaptor and the motherboard needs to be replaced.

Dell inspiron said battery low plug into charger, when plugged in charger light goes out and laptop will not power on, why?


Remove the main battery from the laptop and try power, if it works the battery is bad, if no change the charger needs to be checked for proper voltage. Since your laptop is less than a year old you should have warranty for up to the year, check this asp and find your paperwork should verify.

Just to understand your problem your laptop is working properly when plugged directly to the power cord but not when running only on battery? Then it sounds like you need to replace the battery.

Dell Inspiron 6400 wont recognize new battery


Well often batteries from 3rd party manufacturer do not work in some laptops, see even the batteries have a "Chip" in them identifying them. Also sometimes these batteries are just no-good. or arrive flat, too flat to be charged up via the supplied charger. Anyway hopefully none of that applies and this will work. Now Turn PC OFF, put battery in unit. Now plug in wall unit, then plug into the PC, now leave the PC totally alone for at least 3 hours. Now the unit should work. Now how we tell where the problem lies is like this, Turn OFF, take out battery, now plug in the wall adapter, now the PC should work Fine like this. Now remove wall adapter, and insert the battery, the unit should go on this.. ONLY of course if charged. Now if when plugged in there are problems, it is more than likely, that indeed the battery is faulty, in some way.
These links below detail what steps to take to remedy any situation. The 2nd link is great.

Power jack replacement Dell Inspiron 6400


When you press the power button, no lights, fans, beeps, anything?

Is the power jack moving around? If not, I would check the charger and cord to make sure power is getting through to the plug that goes into the jack.

Dell Inspiron 6400 charger not always working


u r very correect its the time for new 1 to be bought. u can get the new 1 from radio shack websites. and also dont try to use that faulty charger again as it can possibly blow the laptop electrical parts internally due to any over power short circuit.

Dell laptop charger


If the charger is older and since you saw the light go on then off again, it could just be the charger wires. Assuming your charger has a black box attached to it, try pushing the cord in towards the black box (usually the end leading to your laptop) . If that doesn't work, wiggle the cord in that area. If this works, your problem is simply the wire is worn out. You can fix it by exposing the inside wire where the bad connection is, snip it, reconnect and cover with electrical tape. I just did this to my sister's last week.
