It is definitely a hardware problem; I will assume that the laptop will not boot from the battery as well as from the wall connector - please correct me if I am wrong.  If so, most likely it is the electrical connector inside the casing where the wall-adapter barrel plug inserts into the socket in the laptop. These are notorious for forming cracks in the small socket from the stress of the plug flexing on the socket when plugged in. Unless you are somewhat handy with this type of thing, best to take it to a computer repair shop. I do not recomment a big box store type, better with an independent shop. Of course it could be something else, but this is the single most common cause.

Maybe is smart to try first to test Your charger? Maybe crack is inside a cable (connector). If You have voltmeter, just measure it. 

On Toshiba Satellite laptops, female connectors are not onboard but over a cable connected to main board. That can crack also, but its almost never case. You can see here what Im talking about.
