    I would guess that the DC Power Jack will have to be repaired.

    seems something came apart or disconnected
    you removed, and reseated the battery also?  if that is not connected...

    you have to open the laptop and inspect if all devices are properly seated - best remove them and reconnect disk, cd drive ram

    There is no mystery here.  edbedb is correct.  Geek Squat or other chain store will charge an unreasonable fee, $200 or more.  A local PC shop should charge ~ $100.  In my area, I take this specific repair to a shop that serves the immigrant communities.  $45 at that shop.  

    More often than not, this is a simple soldering task.  Sometimes, the connector must be replaced, not just resoldered.  The cost is model specific - $15 to $45, plus labor.
