Thank you for contacting FixYa. I would be more than happy to help you. The problem you mentioned seems interesting to solve..let's see what can
we do to fix this.
You said, as soon as you connect the adapter the computer shuts off, but on the battery it works. Here is what we can try to fix this : -
1. try to take out the battery and then start it with the adapter only. if it turns on then connect the battery else,
2. the motherboard port where the adapter connects to the system board has gone bad and needs to be replaced. you can get it fixed or soldered from a local technician.
3. Check the LED's status of your laptop by click here.
4. In case link doesnot work.
a. flashing, solid, solid : - Reseat the processor or replace the motherboard.
b. Solid , flashing , solid : - replace / reseat the memory.

99% the motherboard has gone bad and needs to be replaced.

But, as per my understanding the motherboard needs to be replaced. you can contact a local technician who can fix that for you.
