Dell (laptop) power cord issue

This problem has been to Dell & back with no solution so I thought I'd ask real experts!

Daughters Dell Inspiron 5150 laptop has a problem with the power converter.

The unit will charge the battery until full, then the laptop no longer recognizes the converter. The laptop must run with the battery until low. When low, the converter will recharge then, again the laptop must run on battery power.

Dell had us actually ship the whole thing back to them, they replaced the converter and the battery but to no avail.

Anyone ever run into this or have suggestions?
