Hi
A month or so ago, i was running my laptop with the power cable connected, and all of a sudden i got the message "Plugged in, not charging"
Ever since then, i am unable to charge my laptop, i can only run it when the cable is connected.
I should add that a while ago my dog chewed the insulation on my power cable, but the wires are still intact and i fixed it with insulation tape.
Iit worked fine for a few months after i did this.
I know this isn't ideal but surely if there was an issue with with the power cable, it would either blow the fuse or it just wouldnt work at all.
I'm guessing that the battery is now dead (I've had the laptop for just over two years)
I've even tried the battery calibration tool but as soon as it tries to run on battery alone without the power cable, it just powers out.
I can't decide whether to buy a new battery, or a new power cable (or both)
any help would be appreciated
