Hi Heathers1966,

If the adapter light goes off as soon as you connect your Ac adapter then its definitely an issue with the charging port or the motherboard. Private message me your service tag if your laptop is in warranty. This link http://dell.to/1NK4chC will hep you in finding the service tag. You can also try these steps http://dell.to/1y27IYf & see if it works


Thanks and regards

Yeah, sounds like a short at the main board. Sorry heathers, but I think the laptop's entire mainboard will need to be replaced. You can still get it serviced out of warranty by a local tech. I don't know whether Dell will help you or not on an out of warranty item.
