Idea pad 305 wont charge

i have had my idea pad 305 for just over a year i purchased for a project which then never happened. i used it for emails and a few other bit for a short while. I then started using it when i needed to put parental controls on the family windows 10.

It ran out of power so i connected the charger and it never charged regardless of how long i left it charging. i then borrowed a charger from work which worked, it ran out of power again i used the work charger again and it wont charge at all i have since purchased a new charger and that does not work either.

Any help would be greatfully received.

@pridu99 sounds like your battery is the problem. Most likely from the long time of having been discharged and now no longer holds a charge. Replace it and re-evaluate

you would not believe it. I borrowed the work lead again and pushed it in quite firmly and it started working. I tried both the original and the recently purchased leads but they still wouldn't work. we tried all combinations too to ensure it wasn't anything really daft. I decided it must be the connectors and on really close inspection found that the work one was just over one millimeter longer than the other two. I shaved the plastic off the end of one and now its perfect.

Sorry to have wasted your time.

Is it possible that the bit inside my laptop that the charger goes in to could be broken
