Is it the AC Adapter?

I tried to plug it in while the laptop is running on the battery only. but I Only got a pulsing light on the power. I have a Toshiba sattelite L740.
 
Hi,

Please do try troubleshooting steps that may help.
- First, remove the battery off the laptop then connect just the AC adapter and see if the laptop will boot up or not.
- If the laptop will boot up normally using the just the AC adapter that means it should be okay.
- While the laptop is on put the battery back in and see if it will charge or not.
- But if the laptop will not boot up with just the AC adapter that means replacing it would be the only solution.

Update! I might have come up with the cause of the problem. turns out that i have left it plugged in on monday while i was at work then there was a lightning strike just near our house. Could that possibly be the cause of the problem?

No it wouldn't charge with the laptop turned off, just some blinking light.
