Question about Computers & Internet
When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Well, this is happening to another laptop i know. if you remove the battery and order a new one and replace it it should work. Its probably just a dodgy battery. While you have the battery out, you will need to use the power cable all the time. This just happens to some batteries. Thats just my advice anyway.
PS: I am only 99.9% sure this is the right thing to do. I would check at a computer repair place too or battery world.

remove battery and reseat it. If problem persist, the battery may need to be replaced. Look on the laptops website to see if there was a known issude with the batteries in your series.

If you charged up your battery up for 2hrs but didnt increase the percentage or didn't charge up at all it means that your battery is faulty. I have also a same case with you.
Send it to the service center near you and ask them to rplace your battery. Replacement is free if machine is under warrant.y
