I had the same problem, I removed the bettery while it was still plugged in, tested it, then plugged it back and and now all is fine.

You have a ground fault issue in the DC JACK.
There are escentially 4 circuits in the jack and one is not making contact.
1: Negative Charge circuit (outter ring)
2: Negative Run circuit (outter ring)
3 Positive (Inner Ring)
4: Signal (center pin)
I believe the negative charge circuit (outter ring) is not making contact internally. Typically what happens on that model DC Jack is the tension contact metal becomes fatigued, and does not touch the outter ring.
This could come from Heat causing early fatigue of the metal.
Or normal wear, the metal has simply worn out from regular insert/removal.

That usually indicates battery is beginning to go bad. Eventually it will not hold a charge and will need to be replaced.

Could be your connection inside the laptop itself.
They tend to go easily in gateways.
The wear and tear from plugging it in and out.
Cost approximately $70.00 - $100.00 to repair.
Can usually get the best price at a small computer repair store

SOURCE: no charge on laptop
I agree. Batteries have a limited life. Also--once you have a new battery installed, be sure you let it discharge all the way (until the computer tells you it has to be charged--about 3% remaining) at least once a month. This will ensure you get the maximum life out of a battery.

Check your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs
into the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the
jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to
take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the
motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.
