Laptop will not turn on, mains adaptor box green led light flashs

\015 Last week my Dell 8000 inspiron started to act up. Problem is that it\015\012will not accept the mains charge as before. To explain; I always use my\015\012laptop via the mains adapter and as it should the mains adapter box has\015\012a solid green indicator light showing it is on and powering my laptop.\015\012\015\012But last week without warning when I turned on my laptop the mains\015\012adaptor box led light started flashing on and off. I have a spare mains\015\012adaptor so tried it as well and the same thing, it flashes all the\015\012time. Also tried a different power socket...but no difference. When I\015\012turn on my computer it goes to battery power straight away and will not\015\012take the mains feed.....Strange.....\015\012\015\012When I pull out the mains lead from the back of my computer the light\015\012on the mains adaptor box stops flashing but as soon as I connect it to\015\012my laptop again it begins to flash. This has now resulted in my battery\015\012being run down with no way of charging it or powering up my laptop with\015\012the mains.\015\012\015\012Someone mentioned it might be a dud battery that is causing my laptop\015\012not to either charge the battery or allow the laptop to be fed via the\015\012mains adaptor lead\015
