No charging light on an Inspiron 1545

This question has suggested answer(s)

I just bought a new Dell Inspiron 1545, and I have plugged in the AC adapter to charge it for 12 hours. However, there is no light on the laptop itself to indicate it is charging, only a steady blue light on the adapter. Does this mean the laptop is in fact charging?
