How do you know it is working? Do you have a volt meter for dc, what reading do you get? It should be near the spec on the adapter. I have had several fail at the computer plug connection. A little wiggle may confirm. For emergency I taped it with a splint.
Any chance you can swap adaptor and or battery with a friend to verify? If your battery is charged, it should boot. My bet is the battery is dead because the adaptor is not working properly.

I have dell vostro 1400 laptop.when my latop charger is plugged in laptop is charged but as suddenly when i unplugged charger laptop is shutdown no battry is charged what is the problem?


You have either a faulty/worn out battery or a faulty charging circuit.
Recharageable battery have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and over the years the battery life gets shorter and shorter until it is worn out and won't charge any more.
If the battery is more than 2 years old then the battery is most likely worn out and needs to be replaced.
