    I have the exact same problem. I've replaced the Power Supply Unit, still fails. I tried to power up the notebook without its battery, it won't. I'm waiting to see if anyone states that a new battery fixed the problem.

    Know this is old but I have just had the same problem. If you can get a charge on the battery it will run the PC, indicating it is actually charging (eg "35% charging") but the battery slowly runs down to 0% (still "charging") whence it stops and refuses to run again although it will make a couple of feeble attempts to rise again if you leave the battery out for a few hours. I think it may have been caused by a power hit because I got a cmos checksum error caused by blown cmos battery which went away when replaced. The fact that it will run with the battery suggests that the motherboard is ok and I think it is either a power distribution IC thats blown or possibly a capacitor between the power supply and the motherboard circuitry. It is NOT the battery and if you can find a way to charge it up outside the PC it will run your C500.

The motherboard is burned, you need to get a new on. But honestly, it's cheaper to get a new one.
