Dell Inspiron E1505 shorting out adapter

\015 I have a Dell Inspiron E1505. I've had it for quite some time, and am on my second charger. It's gotten to the point that my battery needs replaced, too (or at least according to the computer when it turns on it does). Today, while working on something at work, I noticed that it began shutting itself off. Then, I couldn't get it to turn back on. I had it plugged in, and noticed that the green light on the adapter was off. After unplugging the adapter from the computer and the wall and plugging it back into the wall, I noticed that the light was going out whenever my computer was plugged into it. Then I tried the same thing with my coworker's adapter (we both have dell laptops that take the same cord), and the same thing happened. The computer isn't getting any power, because it's somehow shorting out the adapter. Once I unplug the adapter from the wall and plug it back in, the adapter seems to reset itself, but it still seems to kill the power once it's plugged into my computer.\015

Answers :

I would replace the battery if you had for some time. Over time charging a battery will slowly not take a charge. If you tried two adapters, about the only thing is left is the battery.
