    Okay guys please help if you can.

    I woke up with my MacBook pro on charge, but it wasn't charging , I checked and even though I had my charger plugged in, it said as if I wasn't.
    I un plugged charger from the wall and plugged it back in, something happened and I saw a spark from MagSafe mbp connector side. I turned on my MacBook and it still worked so I drained it completely, then i got my dads MacBook pro 17 charger 85w, it didn't seem to work. So now, I'm stuck with dead MacBook pro 15 2010, it won't receive any charge and its out of battery, what do i do?

    Take it to a genius bar. The fact that two different chargers aren't working and you saw a spark indicates that something is physically wrong with the mbp either at the magsafe connection or potentially the logic board.

    Well, first charger had spark while it was connected to MacBookpro so maybe something happened to it and i need to reset something?

    I wouldn't count on that. Your story points to a physical fault, either with the original charger or the mbp, but nothing of your own fault. You need to take it into Apple to see what's damaged.

    From the sounds of it, something shorted out that is now preventing any recharging.

    Take it to apple
