Not a quick fix, but if it is a socket connector, you can take it apart and replace the socket. Check your local electronics components store.

Dell power supplies use 3 wires. One detects the power supply. If you are using a Dell supply then that wire is broken inside the cord or at the connection. If this a universal power supply it only has 2 wires.

From doing a google search for "AC Adapter Cannot Be Determined" it
appears your power adapter is defective and/or the output voltage is not
up to full voltage. From the many posts about this that I find doing
the google search it's a fairly common problem. If it's still under
warranty contact Dell Support. If not, you'd better buy one replacement. There are tons of online stores selling this.

In this case I believe, you can try updating the BIOS of the system and check if that fixes the issue.
You can find the BIOS drivers from the following link:
But please make sure to connect the AC adapter while updating the BIOS
Also please make sure to select the Operating System that is installed on the system
Please let me know if it was of some help?

Hi Maxinfotech Its a common problem for DELL laptops. Most of the time the cause of this a bad AC Adapter but sometimes a firmware reset for the motherboard is the fix. I recommend you try replacing the AC adapter first than try to reset the firmware which could cause a system malfunction sometimes when not done properly. Thanks for using Fixya
