    Problem with laptop, battery not charging.

    And the ac power cord isn't powering up the laptop without the battery either. I bought a new power cord for the laptop and same issue, so I'm thinking its something internal. It's a Toshiba Protege 3480ct. Should I just tell him to buy another laptop? Thanks for any advice given.
