Dell Laptop - Inspiron 1525 - Electrical Sparks w/HDMI Cable and Dell Adapter

\015 I wanted to watch a video on my laptop using my 32" Sony Bravia set as a monitor. Turned the computer on and proceeded to hook up a new, out of the box HDMI\015\012cable between the laptop and the television. I noticed that a message\015\012saying that the battery level on my computer was low so I plugged the\015\012computer in using the Dell AC adapter. To my surprise, sparks came out\015\012of the HDMI input jack, at the computer end. When I\015\012jumped back, I must have inadvertently unplugged the computer from the\015\012AC adapter. With the HDMI cable connected between the TV and computer,\015\012I attempted to plug the AC adapter cord back into the computer. This is\015\012when a second sparking event occured and the computer immediately shut\015\012down and now it will not power up and the Netflix video\015\012is still inside the player. Both sparking events created a terrible\015\012electrical burning smell, leading me to believe that there is some\015\012serious internal damage.Facts:I have always used the same Dell AC adapter for this computer without any problem. Until yesterday evening, I had never before encountered such a problem until I used an HDMI connector for the first time.Any ideas? Thanks.\015

I have Dell Inspiron 1521 that is 2 years old (although it has only been used about 8 months total).

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.
