Question about HP Compaq Presario C500t Notebook
You probaly have a broken DC JACK on the motherboard. Therefore, regardless if you have a good power adapter. The power is not making a connetion to the battery because the DC JACK throught which the power flows is broken.
Try another adapter and remove the battery. If the computer is powered up using the new adapter then the old adapter is bad and the DC JACK is good. Replace the battery and if the batter charges, you can identify the old power adapter as the culprit. If the batter does not charge but the laptop powered on. Then both the battery and the charger is faulty-battery not holding charge.

Ant doubts in the charger should be accepted as fact and a new one purchased. A bad charger can have very nasty repurcussions on the motherboard, battery and other sensitive components that rely on a stable, consistant power source. Ebay is an excellent resource for chargers. There is an Ebay store called Monster battery, that sells chargers with extra long cables. Most chargers are priced in the 30-40 dollar range.
