Default Laptop wont recharge battery Need Help

I have a Dell Latitude laptop computer. The battery works fine and so does the adapter. The plug that the adapter plugs into seems to have a short or is just not working . This does not allow me to recharge my battery so my computer stays dead.

Recently had been going from battery icon to charging and then to battery use when the laptop was moved. Now can not get a charge at all and computer is dead because of this. Any Help on what I need to do or what is wrong?
