I have in Inspiron 8200 that has been sitting in my closet for probably 2 years because of a problem with the power source.
I replaced the a/c adapter several times because I seemed to have problems with them breaking near the part that plugs into the computer. Then one day it just wouldn't recognize that it was plugged in at all. For a while I could position the cord just right and get it to charge , but finally it quit working entirely. I now have a completely flat battery and two a/c adapters which I am sure are both completely fine. I'd hate to put much money into the computer, but it would be nice to have it up and working.
Any suggestions?

connect the power cables and allow the battery to charge for some while.

then switch it on.

or it may be that there is a battery problem and you will need to replace it.
