Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

I sounds to me like its time for you to purchase a new battery for your laptop.

Make sure your new battery is the same rating as the one you have in your laptop now.

If you continue having problems once the battery has been replaced, you might find that your adapter is faulty.

Laptop adapters do fail over time or their wires become brittle and brake just where the wires go into the plug that plugs into the laptop.

There is a lot of ware and tare on this wire as it is stressed when it is repeatedly plugged and un-plugged into the laptop power jack.

Go with the new battery first, then try purchasing a new adapter if the new battery fails to charge.
