Question about Sony VAIO VGN-SZ330P/B Notebook
Your symptoms point to two possible problems.
1. It's your charger that's the problem. Chargers can fail in one portion of their structure that charges the battery but the part that powers the laptop directly can continue to function normally.
2. Your DC Power Jack (the small hole where the charger plugs into the board) can be having the same trouble I described in the charger
When people bring a laptop to my shop with these systems I always try a charger first, the easiest and least expensive fix. If that doesn't work, I have to send the laptop out to one of several vendors on eBay that specialize in that repair alone. You just go to eBay and type "DC Power Jack Repair" in the search box and you'll have quite a few reapir shops to choose from. I've had 100% success with several different ones.
