I've been running my inspiron 6400 off AC since the original battery died around a year ago.

I had to buy a new AC charger but have had a few problems since starting to use it. It was working okay while connected to the mains but the battery light was solid orange as if I was running it from the battery. Eventually it stopped powering up at all.

I've since bought a replacement battery. It seems as if it's drawing some power off the mains as the new battery isn't running down very quickly but it just isn't charging.

Any ideas?
