Dell charger LED goes out when plugged in = motherboard blown?

My DELL XPS 1530 laptop switched off last night and I presumed the problem was with the charger. However, I note today that if I plug the adaptor in, the green LED comes on. However, when I then plug it into the laptop, the LED goes off and nothing happens. Does this indicate the laptop has a problem rather than the charger? P.

To test--Remove the battery and use the adapter alone. If it works then, buy a new Dell battery or always use the adapter.

Yes, it means the mainboard is the problem.
