Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook ?

Fails to charge, even after replacing battery

\015 My Inspiron 1000's battery wouldn't charge, so I figured it needed a new one and replaced it. BTW, it runs fine on A/C. But the new battery, once exhausted, does not charge either, so I figure there must be some issue with the machine. Any suggestions are much appreciated.\015

I have Dell Inspiron 1521 that is 2 years old (although it has only been used about 8 months total). I got an error about it not recognizing my ac adapter (the original ac adapter from Dell that it came with) & the battery wouldn't charge. Now the battery is dead. The light on the ac adapter is green even when plugged into the laptop. When ac is plugged in to the laptop the battery icon flashes blue. When I power the laptop up, the battery icon flashes red and I get the low battery warning.
