This sounds like your charger has failed.

 

If you have access to a digital multi-meter you can test to see if it is producing any ouput. Set the meter to read Volts, hold the OV probe to the outside conductor at the tip of the lead that goes into the computer, and contact the inner conductor with the +Volts probe. If it is working it should show a voltage approximately 18 - 20V if it is working.

 

If it has failed then the only cure is a replacement, these units are not repairable.

It is always possible that there is a mobo problem, but let's try the simple and cheap things first. Even if you have to borrow a meter, that is considerably cheaper than taking your laptop into a repair shop just to check an output voltage. And if the test shows that the charger has failed a new charger is going to cost a lot less than a mobo.

 

If it turns out that the charger is working properly, then it is time to worry about a mobo. I am not sure that you can buy a new one except through e-bay where they are priced, the two I looked at, at $US 170 and £UK 100. If you have the skill to to do this replacement yourself this might be economical. A repair shop would probably charge between £UK 50 and 100 for labour, in which case you are probably at least as well considering a new laptop.
