You do not open the AC adapter - they're not repairable.  Replace it with a new one.  A damaged adapter - which otherwise costs about $30-40 to replace - can easily destroy a $150 battery or a $300 mainboard.

Does the BIOS report the AC adapter, or is it listed as unknown?

If the system correctly recognizes the AC adapter but the battery won't charge, chances are high the battery is the problem.
