.  If the battery is more than 2-3 years old, it probably needs to be replaced. Check to make sure that the charger is working before purchasing a new battery.

Turn your Packard Bell upside down, it may have the model number underneath.

Did it stop working suddenly, or has your laptop's battery run-time been slowly decreasing for a while?

If it happened suddenly, it could be a broken charger, broken charger cable, or broken DC jack on the laptop. 

If the laptop runs fine with the charger plugged in, but the battery won't hold a charge, then it's probably the battery.

Does the computer run when the charger is hooked up and turned on?  If yes then it's probably your battery and not your charger.  If the charger is good and the battery still won't take a charge then it almost definitely is you battery.

THe cord that connects your computer to the outlet might have burned out, mine did about three weeks ago and it was having the same problems yours is.
