It might be, but we need some basic troubleshooting to determine if it is really the battery or the unit itself that has the problem. Turn off the device, then remove the cables and battery on the laptop. Press and hold the power button for 8 secs.Reinsert the cables only without the battery and turn on the device. Check if it is working fine on your system. If it is, then turn off the device and remove the cable. Then reinsert the battery w/o the cable and turn on the pc. If it wont turn on, then plug the power cable. If it is on then check if it is charging. If it is not charging then you need o replace the battery. If you plug the cable without the battery and does not turn on, then there is something wrong on the outlet or from the AC power cable or from the power port. That is the time you replace the cable.

there is something wrong with your battery even though the laptop shows that the battery is fully charged.

You need to get another battery for your laptop as the one you are using presently cannot hold charge, that is, the cell in the battery is weak.

Good luck.

Does it come on when you are using your power cord? if so, then my assumption is that your battery is dead or something is wrong with it if it is a new battery. If your battery/computer is new and still under warranty, you can petition your computer manufacturer, under the warranty, to replace the battery. If your computer does not come on even when plugged up, then there is probably something wrong with the power source on the computer, and it needs to be repaired. If your computer is still under its warranty, then contact your computer manufacturer and explain to them what is going on. They will assist you on where to take it, if locally, and/or where to send it. They should provide all shipping boxes/paperwork.

I would suggest taking it to a repair depot to get fixed. It sounds like something has shorted out on the motherboard. I recommend taking the hard drive out so it doesn't get damaged.

My computer is dead, plugged into charger, but not charging

Well, it obviously isn't getting power enough to boot. Take the battery out and use the ac adapter only. If you have the means, determine if the ac adapter is providing the correct voltage.
Also, try re-seating the memory.
Let me know what happens.
Good luck
