I would firstly check the battery connections on the laptop and make sure none of them have broken

I just found out that the AC adapter tip is broken.  Now with the new AC adapter it is charging. I will check and update if this fixes the problem. - thank you

Not sure about that model laptop, but you might want to check the battery contacts in the laptop's battery bay. If there are not making proper contact with the battery, then this might explain why even a new battery is not charging.

If the contacts look fine, then the problem is most likely a bad systemboard since it's not charging.

I checked with a new AC adapter and everything works great.
