Answers :

If you have the correct PSU and it is not helping to charge the laptop then there is a strong chance that part of the circuit on the laptop is pooched. If you have been throwing a wide assortment of adapters at it then any one of them that may have had the wrong voltage could have done the damage
\015\012
\015\012When it come to laptops especially they mus be fed with a supply that has both the correct voltage and the correct output current.
\015\012
\015\012If you laptop says 19V 1000mA then that is what you must give it ! You can give it a little more on the current and that's often of a benefit to both the PSU and the item being powered but NEVER NEVER give it less
\015\012
\015\012Also if your replacement PSU feels lighter than the original then don't use it unless you get a damn good warranty as it is probably a cheap chinese switch mode one that may state it has the current but when it comes to the crunch it probably wont !
\015\012
\015\012Giving it less will result in that laptop not charging properly with a risk of damage to the batteries, it will also cause the laptop to try draw more current that is available from the supply which may overheat the supply to the point of a fire, it could even cause parts of the voltage regulation components in the laptop to work too hard and cause failure
\015\012
\015\012Good news is that the repairs to this section of the board are pretty common and therefore can be inexpensive (esp compared to a new motherboard). Older laptops also suffer the power socket failure problems (most brands) so if you have to take it in to get fixed get them to do that as well.
\015\012
\015\012I don't follow your civil law rant at all but from your admittance to using incorrect PSU's i don't think you would have much of a chance in any litigation LOL
Its is highly likely the connector with the adopter and computer is damaged it is part of the motherboard where you connect the power adopter.This is a common problem with most dell laptops.
suggestions
1: replace the motherboard
2:get a laptop dock
3: get a new one
