Dell Inspiron 1720 "plugged in, not charging"

I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 and have absolutely loved it. Just last night I realized that if I disconnect the AC adapter the battery indicator blinks red. It currently says "plugged in, not charging" w/ 2% battery life in the lower right hand corner. Any ideas? I believe I have had my laptop for about 18 months. I purchased it through my employer's discount program. I am a teacher in an Autism program and desperately need this to work as I often have meetings with parents where we review data on my computer. I purchased the extended warranty plan. What should I do?
