There are three possible reasons why your computer is experiencing this power problem. What you need to do is to isolate the component that's causing it.
These are the parts which should be checked:
1. Power supply
3. Motherboard of the laptop.
Here's the procedure that you have to follow:
1. Remove the battery from the computer.
2. Power the computer up with the power cord only without the battery on it.
3. Check if it works perfectly without any problems even if the battery is out. If it works, then, the battery needs to be replaced. (Note: Batteries are disposable parts. They usually die after 2 years of usage depending on how you use it.)
4.If no go even without the battery on it, check the ac adapter or cord if there's a light lit on the box of the cord. If no lights on it, double check the connection. If connections seem ok but no power, then, replace the power cord.
5. If power cord seem fine, check the hole in the computer where you plug in the cord. What you need to check is if there are any sign of damages. Wiggle the cord and see if there are lights lit in the laptop.
I hope this help.
