Battery may be going slowly bad.  Does the battery charge up when the laptop is off?

You mentioned that you have tried a new battery as well.  Is this the same type of battery which was originally installed at the factory?

 

It should match in the voltage, amp hours, and the number of cells.

 

Another thing you can do is to take a volt meter, set it to a DC voltage scale and read the output of the power adapter.  The specification for the adapter and battery will be printed on each device.

 

If you need instructions for reading the voltage let me know.

Many of todays charging supplies have two circuits, one to run the unit if no battery is in place and one for charging the battery.  This makes for a complex connector on the circuit board that is probe to getting jammed and even dislodged.  A qualified tech could tell you which is at fault.  Some units have  a separate circuit board to separate the two voltages and it can become dislodged too.

Years ago while working phone tech for a computer company, if I read your thread back then, I would be looking at motherboard circuitry and its connectivity to the battery and to the power brick. If there's a way to reach and refreshen all motherboard contacts, do that before even considering motherboard replacement. As usual, follow BC seasoned techs' advice, you can't go wrong.

Well, that's what BC is for, gathering and implementing solutions  :)
