Whenever the system doesn't recognize the AC adapter, the battery WILL NOT charge. If you haven't yet tried a new OEM Dell adapter, that's the first thing to do. If that doesn't get and keep the adapter recognized, replace the DC power jack in the system. And if that fails to solve the issue, replace the mainboard. The adapter completes a charge circuit with a center wire. If that charge circuit is not closed, the battery WILL NOT charge, even if the adapter powers the system.
