I have a Dell Latitude D610 that will not power up with the ac adapter but will fire up with the battery, when I plug the ac adapter into the jack on the main board the green light on the ac adapter goes off which I've read means a short ether in the plug/jack on the main board or in the circuitry. I have swapped out 3 different ac adapters & all did the same thing, green light goes out as soon as you plug it into the jack on the computer. I also read this is a pretty common problem with some dells where the jack on the main board goes bad, so I bought a new jack for the main board & had it soldered in professionally, but am still having the same problem. any ideas what to try next?
