Question about Computers & Internet
I would suggest getting a universal power adapter like this one:
be sure to set the power rating to the same volts as your old power adapter.
this will help rule out that as the cause. The next thing to check is the port where the power connection from the ac adapter is made on the notebook it could be faulty which is causing an unstable power connection. The worst case is the power module that is on the motherboard could be toast and you would then need to get a new mainboard for the notebook which will cost you some bucks. At that point just get a new notebook.
hope this helps let me know if not! and please vote!

Try removing the battery and try with just the ac adapter if battery is totally flat can prevent laptop from starting up
