Question about Computers & Internet
1 The power supply is duff. How do you know it is actually working? Have you been able to test it on another system?
2 The charging circuits in the laptop have failed. Only a workshop can test this.
3 The Battery is dead. How do you know it is good if the system is not working?
4 There is a mechanical connection problem. Damaged lead/plug/socket etc. Examine and swap out to check.
Note that the system would not work if 1, 2 and 4 were the problem. (Since the system should still work of AC even without a battery).So a battery problem is the lowest probability.
The above assumes that your original diagnosis is correct, and there is a charging problem, and not something else.

Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.
