Could it be the socket on the laptop where you plug the power in has got pushed backwards so that the jack no longer makes contact?

Don't get what you are on about! Charger is on the outside of the\ Laptop, Have you tried running just on Mains with Battery removed?

Faulty Battery can drag the power down
