The story:

 

I left my house taking my laptop and forgetting the charger so i went to buy a universal charger on the way to work. i plugged in the charger at work and at the time my laptop battery was dead. so i plugged the charger in and it came up with the fully charged light on my laptop and it wasn't charging. so i left it plugged on over lunch and came back to see the laptop charging light was completely off. I unplugged the charger and went home to plug the charger that came with the laptop in. i plugged in the laptop and no light and the laptop would not charge. i have a horrible feeling i fried the motherboard but do you guys have any fixes that could get it working.

 

 

PC Information:

 

Processor: AMD A8 4555m @ 1.6GHz

RAM: 8GB DDR3

HDD: 1TB

OS: Windows 10  (Came with Windows 8.1)

If the battery was depleated to far it's possible that it's damaged. The battery has a protection circuit preventing damage to the cells by overcharging or over discharging. Will the laptop turn on with out the battery and only the power adapter?

No the laptop won't turn at all. I have tried turning it on with just the adapter and no battery in and still nothing. I have also tried holding the power button for 30 seconds to drain any power and still nothing.
