    i have a dell latitude c640 i believe and the light on the battery will stay green until i plug the adapter into the computer then it goes off
    i have a friend who fixes computers and we ordered a dc jack. he installed it into the mother board but its still isnt working

    Hi and welcome. Do you mean the battery light on the computer goes out when you plug the jack in? If so, that is normal.

    Makes no sense.

    Is the light on the laptop, regarding the laptops battery?

    - OR -

    On the AC power brick or 'charger' as it is sometimes known?

    Almost sounds like a short around the adapter input area.

    You said you tried more than one adapter, right? If so, it's beyond the adapter, and probably a motherboard issue.
