Dell AC Adapter not recognized

I have a Dell Inspiron 5150, (I know.... it's a horrible model) that has ceased to recognize that it is plugged in. 

I have checked the power cord - it works when I plug other laptops into it. 

I have tried other cords into mine - nothing will cause it to charge. 

The battery works if I charge it in another laptop. 
I have placed a working battery into my laptop, it won't charge in mine.
It seems the problem is inside my computer. I have heard there is a product you can buy to fix this - is that true? Is my laptop dead? PLEASE HELP!!! 

Also, I'm not going to take my computer apart myself.

It sounds like the DC jack on your laptop is bad. Usually not a cheap fix either.
