Can a faulty motherboard cause battery not to charge?

Can a faulty motherboard cause a laptop battery not to charge and not to power on without the battery inserted? when I plug my 19.5V laptop charger to my Dell, the notification light will show that power is there but not charging my laptop. hen I remove battery, the laptop doesn't turn on. Fortunately, my sister has the exact same laptop. I used my charger on her laptop and it charges her battery and mine as well. it also powers on without any batteries. Her charger also doesn't work on my laptop. I tried swapping out rams and hard drive but still nothing. The Dell diagnostics tells me everything is fine, battery performing normally and the AC adapter 65W. BTW, my laptop turns on just fine, and usable, wiggling the power jack doesn't help either. What could be the issue, thanks? My laptop turns on well and power issue still exists even after reinstalling windows 10, power is being supplied and charging led is showing power is being delivered but not enough to charge ANY battery AND turn on the laptop without the battery. diagnostics say that all components are functional. however, the percentage of the battery decreases with ANY battery. I have tried: Gone to a repair shop, which stated that it could be a motherboard failure. I tried wiggling the power jack, cleaning dust inside the laptop, reinstalled Windows 10 PRO and updated BIOS. I think it was caused by: I think someone put my laptop on my sister's identical laptop charger which caused a power surge. OR could be a software malfunction and lastly but unlikely I think it's the hard-drive. The laptop wasn't dropped by the way.

Did I spoil the motherboard when the processor was pulled out?

Recently, I wanted to apply Thermal compound paste to my processor but the processor was glued to the heat sink fan and I happen to pull it out of the socket. I have also bought a new processor and installed it but now the computer cannot boot and it's always "No video input". I was wondering if it could be due to a faulty motherboard. It's always "No video input" after changing the processor and I have also tried resetting the CMOS. I have tried: CMOS reset, discharging ESD, changing the graphics card and RAM. I think it was caused by: Maybe a faulty CPU socket because the processor was pulled out of the socket.The are some abnormal images during game play recently and the graphics card could be faulty.
