Dell Studio 1737 Battery and AC Adaptor problems

Hi I have a dell studio 1737 laptop. It was working fine until I noticed that the battery wasnt charging. I heard the ac adaptor buzzing a bit so I figured the ac adaptor was on its last leg. So I ordered a new one. That didnt charge the battery. So I ordered a new battery. Still nothing charging.
I shut the laptop down, removed the battery(new and old) and tried running the laptop just off the old ac adaptor.
It boots up fine and is usable but I cannot get the battery to charge whether its the new battery/ac adaptor or the old ones.
Is there anything that possibly went on the board itself?????
I have been doing some research but cant find much answers out. I read some other people having the same problem but nothing answered in several forums I have read.

    No, that procedure does not touch anything on the hard drive.
  3. Just remembered I have a warranty out on this. Going to send it in and collect on it. Phew. Thinking I just dodged a bullet here.
