Laptop not recognising ac adapter


I have an Inspiron N5010 for a while now. it had been having a problem with the ac adapter. The green light is on and everything on the charger but when I plug it in I get the message that it can't be recoginised and wont charge my laptop unless I use a 65w dell ac adapter. i have been using the extact adapter that I got with the machine. 

not sure what to do. 

any tips would be awesome.

RE: Laptop not recognising ac adapter

First, try a new Dell OEM AC adapter -- if that doesn't solve the problem, replace the DC jack:

And if that doesn't do it, replace the mainboard.
