Default notebook will only start when running on the battery and not when plugged in

Hello
My Notebook will not turn on when the power is plugged in. It will only power on if the power cord is unplugged
So I just turn it on without the plug and once it starts up I just plug the power back in and the PC has no problems
What is causing this?
The Computer is a Lenovo X300 Win Vista
Thanks in advance

Might want to try getting a new A/C plug. Otherwise, it might be your PSU. Connection between your plug and battery.

Is the laptop under warranty, at all? If it's Vista, probably not, I'm thinking.
