Random shutting down and shutting down when i plug in the ac/dc p

\015 My Toshiba Satellite A200 model number PSAF6A-06S01N keeps shutting down when i connect the power surply into it. I have to let it run until the battery get down to about half way before i can reconnect the power surply. But after i connect it it either charges until the battery is charged then shuts down or shuts down. Im not too sure what the issue is for i have scanned for viruses and done everything else. Just wondering what could be the problem. If i need a new batery or a new power surply.Kind regardsM\015
