    I've got a Dell 13z. When it is plugged in it doesn't recognise that there is a power adapter and instead continues to discharge the battery. The blue light on the cable leading the brick is on.

    The only way I've solved it is by removing the battery and turning it on while plugged in, then turn it off and put the battery back in.

    Is there something wrong with the power adapter? Or could it be a software issue?

    That is truly curious! Especially if your power adapter works when you have no battery installed.
