I have a weird issue here with my laptop...

The battery will not charge when the ac adapter is plugged in.

When the battery is out, the laptop runs fine off of the ac power.

Is there some setting in bios or the os that might have been changed to cause this issue???

Please help..

Did the battery use to work? If so, then it is probably just a bad battery.

Is the dc jack on the computer loose? This is a common issue with laptops. If it is, then it may need replacing.

Or it could be a grounding issue with your computer.

I found this intereting thread, read it all, especially the last post:
