Hello -
Do you remember the last time this computer started in Normal or Safe Mode ??
There may be a short in your motherboard, or Power Supply Unit.
A PDF service Manual is available < Here -
Remove the Battery from the Notebook and power it on using only the AC Adapter

 

Thank You -

This is my backup computer it had been in sleep mode for appx. 6 wks before I discovered it had this problem. I tried removing the battery and memory sticks also two power supplies. I’m looking at the service manual you sent and I will look at the power plug see where that leads.When I have time.
Thanks for the reply!

If you have a multimeter with a DC voltage scale you can take a reading of the output of the power adapter to determine is this is the problem.  On the brick (adapter) the input and output voltages will be listed.  You want the output DC voltage.

 

Insert the positive probe inside the adapter's plug and the negative probe to the outside of the connector.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
