First thing first. Put a volt meter on the plug on your power brick. Hopefully it died. You can get a cheap replacement off of ebay. You should be getting like 19 volts or so.

Time to get a new battery for it. Always remember do NOT leave your battery in ALL the time, especially when you primarily use the laptop as a desktop PLUGGED IN ALL THE TIME. This kills the battery with overcharging. If your laptop sits on your desk for long periods, remove the batter, and only plug in the day before you plan to be mobile (unplugged).
