Ever since I went thru airport security my laptop won't stop beeping when the battery is in. Blank screen, and even the little power light fades out. I think I might need a new 40wh brick but I'm not sure. //Dell Inspirion 1500
 
Could be the power adapter, could be motherboard issue.

No real way to tell outside of trying a new AC adapter.

Here is what should be an OEM replacement: https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Original-Replacement-Adapter-Notebooks/dp/B0064NQ47A

Never trust anything not OEM for power adapter. I have seen many damaged laptops or batteries due to "replacement brand" power supplies. I have seen a few motherboards actually charred brown at the power port.

No, with or without the battery it doesn't work. It makes a loud bomb-like beep with the battery in and just doesn't power on at all without it.
