If you bought the service plan with the Laptop, it does include a free battery replacement, so I would take advantaged of that if you have plan, as new batteries will cost anywhere from $150 upwards.
As for it not charging correct, the port where you plug in the charger could be going bad like it was said before, we had a Sony Laptop that had the same issue (in fact it is still broken, but still able to charge if you are carefu) You could take it to a local Best Buy and they could look at it for you, you could also buy a charger and try it out and see if that fixes the charging problem, if it does not, I would suggest taking the computer in, as it is probably the charging port.

I agree with sassums. In my case, it was the charger PLUG. but all you have to do is try using a differnt charger, (maybe at best buy) and you will see right away if it is the charger, the charger plug,or the plug to your Laptop. good luck!
If you don't have extended warranty...Batteries can be found much cheaper, I would do some online research.

remove battery, plug to AC, now ...are you able to power it on without holding it on a certain way? if yes (check battery contacts and clean it) if no..then its the plug.
To check the charger all you need is a multimeter, set to dc volt, connect the leads and read the charger dc output, it should be same as what the sticker is posted.
