I have an Asus EEE PC 2G that won't charge. Usually it charges via cable. But when I plug in the cable nothing happens and it still continues to run on the battery. I replaced both the battery and the charger but the computer still won't charge. Is there a way to charge the battery separately or some way to get the computer to charge again? Thanks

Make sure you the plug you're using is working. Try out another plug or plug a lamp into the plug and make sure it's working.

Aside from that, most of the time when this happens it is a harware problem with the motherboard of the laptop. A broken solder join, or a damaged component inbetween the power jack and the battery. If the laptop is under warranty, send it in. Otherwise you will need to get it repaired by a technician.

In this case, two different adapters didn't work to charge it. I bought a spare battery and a charger that charges the battery separately from the computer. Then I just switch the batteries in and out. Not ideal, but it works.
