There are a few possibilities:

1. The AC adapter is faulty (very common). Find a replacement online - Ebay isn't too bad if you get from reputable sellers.

2. The battery is dead or faulty. Although most likely the battery isn't charged at all because the AC adapter hasn't been working

3. Motherboard is dead! Had this myself with a HP laptop a few years back. Just dead as a dodo.

I would suggest getting a new AC adapter for your laptop first before concluding anything else

I have the same laptop with the exact same problem listed on the forum. I feel your pain. I have an idea but it may be a faulty motherboard.
I believe the problem lies with the power receptor on the motherboard itself. I am having a friend of mine check it to see if it's the culprit. When I get more info I will be sure to pass it on.
