Hiya guys
My sister in law's laptop has stopped powering up.

Symptoms = when the laptop is plugged into the mains the mains light is on, but as soon as the power button is pressed the mains light goes off

Things I have tried =
Unplugged the mains lead removed the battery reseated the HDD and RAM held the power button down for 30 seconds and that has made no difference.

I don't know if it makes a difference but the power button feels ok

Thanks in anticipation of your help

I believe this to be a common fault, you need to buy a new battery, as one or two of the cells are dead and are causing a power conflict, it should however work normally without the battery plugged in.
