I went to Radio Shack (it cost about $40.00) I also took the DVD player with me so they would give me the right on.
It took a couple of weeks to get it because it was a special order. But it Works!
Hope this helps

The battery might be dead. Batteries only have a useful life and after that they have to be replaced.
your laptop work ok off the AC Adapter Power Cord? If so, your battery
is dead and your power cord is good. If the laptop does not work off
the Power Cord then either your Power Cord is bad or the DC Power Jack
where the power cord plugs into the laptop is bad. In either case a
good battery will not charge if the power cord or the DC Jack is bad.
Check your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs
into the compute. 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.
Your AC Adapter Power Cord is bad based on what you are telling in your request for help. You need to replace the AC Adapter Power Cord.
You can further isolate and verify by the following steps:
If you remove the battery, and plug in the power cord, but the computer will not boot up or work, then the power cord is bad.
If you have them both plugged in and you are running off the battery then the power cord is bad and it is not charging the battery. Eventually your laptop is not going to power on because the battery will be drained and cannot be recharged until you get a working Power Cord.
If the battery shows a red color and it stays red even when the Power Cord is plugged in, then either the Power Cord is not charging the battery or the battery is completely dead and needs to be replaced.
The battery only has a useful life then it must be replaced because it will not hold a charge.
If you are able to use your laptop with the AC Adapter and Power Cord without any problems then the power cord must be ok and the issue is with your battery.
There are three possible reasons why your computer is experiencing this power problem. What you need to do is to isolate the component that's causing it.
These are the parts which should be checked: 1. Power supply 2. Battery 3. Motherboard of the laptop.
Here's the procedure that you have to follow: 1. Remove the battery from the computer.
2. Power the computer up with the power cord only without the battery on it.
3. Check if it works perfectly without any problems even if the battery is out. If it works, then, the battery needs to be replaced. (Note: Batteries are disposable parts. They usually die after 2 years of usage depending on how you use it.)
4.If no go even without the battery on it, check the ac adapter or cord if there's a light lit on the box of the cord. If no lights on it, double check the connection. If connections seem ok but no power, then, replace the power cord.
5. If power cord seem fine, check the hole in the computer where you plug in the cord. What you need to check is if there are any sign of damages. Wiggle the cord and see if there are lights lit in the laptop.
Turn off the pc, disconnect the power cord. Remove the battery. Leave it alone for a few minutes. Plug in the power cord (do not replace battery yet) and turn it on. If it works, turn it off, remove power cord and replace battery. Plug power cord back in and turn on pc again.
If you press the power button and nothing comes on at all then something isn't providing power to the laptop as it should and you may likely need to replace the battery or the power cord.
Find a replacement battery. Change your battery with a new one then plug it up and turn on to see if this works.
If replacing the battery doesn't work then replace the power cord and trying turning it on again. If this doesn't work either, you have a more serious issue going on.
Not too long ago, I was on vacation, my laptop had been working fine until suddenly it wouldn't come on at all. I went into the office to grab a new battery and power cord. (I work on computers so I had spare parts in my office/Tech Room.)
I got home and replaced the battery then tried to turn it on using the old power cord...didn't work. This was a brand new battery so now I knew that I could rule out the battery as the issue...the only two things left to troubleshoot were the power cord and the laptop itself.
I put my old battery back in the laptop then tried to turn it on using a different power cord and it worked. I didn't need to replace my battery or laptop. The power cord had failed.
I hope that your issue is as simple as this solution. Try confirming whether your battery and power cord are still working...you may just need to replace one or the other.
The battery indicator flashing when plugged in to electrical plug means your battery is completely dead and won't charge. You're computer should run with just the power cord. Your power cord most likely needs replacement.
If you know anyone with the same model of laptop ask if you can borrow their power cord and/or battery to test it out. It is rare for the problem to be the motherboard, though it does happen.
It may just be the power cord at fault as the computer should run without the battery, so you should replace the power cord, as it is probably the reason the battery is completely dead.
If the battery is at least a year old I would replace it since they generally don't last too much longer than a year.
