    Go to BIOS and check if the AC Adpt is detected.

    Is the New one a Dell charger ?

    Update BIOS and Quickset application from the support site.

  • Bought a new adapter of ebay (dell marked), plugged-in and restarted and the battery is now charging.

  • Locking Thread as it is more than a year old.
