Make sure the adapter LED stays on before you plug in the notebook end.  If it does not, the adapter is faulty.

If it stays on but goes out on connection to the system, there is a short somewhere inside the system.  First suspect is a bad DC jack.  If replacing that doesn't solve the problem, replace the mainboard.
