Battery not charging after power adapter replacement

Just replaced the battery in my XPS 1340 and found out I have charging issues. When I plug in a charger, Windows sees it but won't charge the old total depleted battery, instead, runs off ac power. Tried a different charger and a new battery with 30% charge but same results. As a last chance effort, I replaced the male prong power adapter in the computer. Now Windows doesn't see the charger and will not run on ac. 

Is there something in the Bios that needs to be done to fix this or am I to assume it's a motherboard issue and retire this little workhorse.
