Well either your adaptor is bad or the power supply board on the laptop is bad.... if the latter you MIGHT be lucky and it be a seperate board but most likely it is built into the motherboard.... I suppose it could also be the jack, I'd take it somewhere that will test the Power adaptor for it...
Thanks for the reply. I tried my spare power cord and it did the same thing. So, worst case scenario I need a new motherboard? Shiiiiiiit, I have replaced mine twice already on this computer, one time under warranty at least.

when you say you tried a spare cord do you mean just a spare power cord or a spare adaptor? Some laptops have power cords that are seperate from the adaptor..... I see you are in the US, we have a Batteries Plus store up here that will test stuff like that, you could try that.... Also maybe try a different outlet if you haven't already...
Yes, I've tried a different outlet and I have tried a different power cord and adapter.
