Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 Notebook
When battery stopped charging and went down to zero power, my computer stopped and won't come on even when plugged in.
Sounds to me like you've got 1 of 3 problems:
1) Your battery is fried and can no longer take or hold a charge.
2) Your adapter is fried or shorted out and is no longer providing a charge to the battery
3) Your power jack on your notebook is faulty and is causing a disruption in the charging process.
My guess would be that #2 would be the most likely and easiest/least expensive to rectify. There is a light on your notebook somewhere that lights up when you plug it in - is this light coming on when you plug the power adapter in? If not, Then you're looking at most likely option #2 and maybe (but not very likely) #3. If the light does come on, but you still have no power, then most likely your battery is shot and needs to be replaced.
Hope this helps.

Your adapter could be faulty, test it with a multimeter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage printed on the label on the adapter.
If the power adapter is OK then the power connector on the laptop could be faulty, plug the connector into the laptop and wriggle the connector to see if the power LED light on the laptop flicks on and off. This indicates a faulty connector and can be repaired.
To check if the laptop is OK, borrow a charged battery or an adapter, connect it to your laptop and see if it boots up.
