take out the battery and turn on the system unplugged to drain the flee power. then put the battery back -->>> reboot. if that does not work
remove the battery and replug the system -->>> reboot
if both fails probably a Motheboard problem

Hello, this problem can mean the processor is faulty. Normally when the processor gets faulty or destroyed the light blinks but doesn't come on at all. I suggest you take it to the tech department for diagnostics. Hope this solution is helpful. Have a wonderful day.

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The power button could be bad.
5. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.
