Default Dell power problem

Hi all
This is my first post and I hope its a good one.

I have a Dell Studio 1558 which has an odd problem.

The laptop boots and is usable but the power and charging is an issue.

The system reports that there is a power error in the system toolbar and the battery doesn't charge. I replaced the battery.

I suspect it's either the motherboard or the power point on the motherboard that's the issue.

I need to take it for repair or assessment to see if it's a write off.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I take it? I'm in Cape Town.

Kind regards
