Run without battery?

I have a friend who owns a P205-S8811 laptop, she brought it to me because it won't power up. it doesn't even try to power up with or without the battery but plugged in or does there have to be a battery? I'm not overly familar with Toshiba laptops; can they run without a battery in them? I don't want her to pay for a new battery if it's the adapter or connection.
