Toshiba Laptop Charger Adaptor burned out

Help on my Toshiba Satellite A200 Notebook Charger Adapter. I was working for two consecutive days. But it doesn't mean, I am using this notebook for the whole time, but surely most of the time. Yesterday, when I am about to start on my researches, I have connected the cord of my charger to its base adaptor then plugged it on the wall. My laptop was currently running at that time,

when I heard a sudden sshhrrrkkk low sound coming from the charger. I was surprised and a bit scared to touch it because I can see that it is starting to produce a little smoke coming in between the cord and the base adaptor. But I instantly unplugged it on the wall. I saw my laptop still running. Then afterwards it turns off. But before this happened, its battery is almost empty. So I am not sure if it turns off because of the incident or because it has no more battery charge.

My question is, is there a way that I can check if my laptop wasn't affected by the incident? I saw on a site that every laptop has a hard reset. I ain't just sure how to properly do it. All I want to know is if it’s still running or not.

Can I turn it on even without the battery and charger?

Please send me some help.

You have to turn On your notebook in order for you to check if your laptop is okay or not. Make sure you turn it on without the adaptor. Make it run with your battery only. 
If your battery doesn't have enough power to turn your notebook on, then you have to borrow a spare charger for you to charge. Then after that,  you can turn it on.
Now, with regards to your question as to whether you can turn it on even without the battery and charger, I say that's not possible. You need at least the battery to turn on your notebook. Some notebooks however can turn on by simply plugging the charger even without battery. But notebook cannot turn on without both battery and charger.

I replaced the connector from the adapter to the wall outlet. Good thing the adaptor itself is not damaged. Thanks for the help.
