Then it's the built in charger that's faulty. you need to take to a laptop repair as it's not as easy as a desktop. Just getting inside is and can be a problem, It may be something simple like a bad solder joint but that does not mean he will work for nothing finding it

mort, woodchip is probably right but before spending money, remove the battery and check the connector terminals inside the battery bay are clean, then plug in the mains, and insert the battery whilst the mains are on.

it worked for me but may not for you, mine was just a bad connection

good luck
