Check the LEDs located on the battery, if they don't light sequencely or make some blinks, your laptop is having a battery issue. If everything is OK with the battery then the problem is in the leads of the motherboard that make contact with the battery or in the circuits that manage the power of the battery, located in the motherboard.

Try another cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs. If you have a multimeter, verify DC voltage at the AC jack plug. If the AC jack, in the laptop, has been pulled, damaged, it's may have a loose connection. You didn' say if ANY LED's, battery charge, work? If the battery is charged and it doesn't start on battery only, then you have other issues. It may need a ride to a Qualified Computer Tech.

If it does the same thing w/ the battery removed and just on AC, it's a power regulator problem on the motherboard. If it works with the battery out, the battery is dead and you need a new one.
