    India has a mains voltage of 230V.

    You said you were abroad. Where are you exactly and what voltage does the country you are in use?

    im from uk and i have just arrived in india for a holiday. india volts is 230v. i have charged my mobile phone (bought in uk) in india which charges well so there should be no reason for the laptop to not charge aswell.

    This is so weird... a friend of mine brought me his laptop yesterday doing the same thing. I simply removed the battery for 1 minute and replaced it and it was fine.
    Its worth a try :)

    Try taking out the battery from the laptop, and just using the power adaptor on it only, so its only drawing power from the mains, eliminating batteries at the moment.

    It could be that your power adaptor is fried, so try a replacement or compatible one..
