The flashing orange light could be the indicator to tell you that your wireless adapter is working and has a connection to your router, if you are not wireless, press the button that is flashing and it will disable your wireless connection,to turn back on press it again.
Or there is another smaller orange indicator which tells you you are runing on battey and it is in need of charge
Check the charger is throwing out the correct voltage at the DC jack Do you get any lights flashing at the charger? If you do it indicates that power is not completing the circuit and is being "spat back". This would indicate a damaged charging circuit or possibly a loose power jack socket, if it feels loose as you plug it in, you may need to change the DC socket
1. Check your power cord & adapter. 2. If its working then check the battery, reseat the battery & check. 3. If available then check with another battery 4. If no, then remove the battery & switch on the PC in AC mode. 5. Check if battery charging indication or AC power on indication is glowing. if not then need to change ur motherboard. 6. If indication is OK, but could not power ON then check ur RAM for any loose connection or dust. clean & reinstall. 7. If still no display, connect an external monitor, check if display is comming. 8. If Display is coming then your LCD is faulty and need to replace.
What you would want to try is to remove the battery and see if pluging in the power cord will power the laptop alone. All laptops have this capability and this shouldnt be an issue.
But by testing this and seeing if it DOESN'T work then that means there could be one of two things. Your AC power adapter is defective and should be replaced with one that is compatible with your system or that your connection jack is either loose on the inside or broken completely.
However I would stick with trying the cord first before trying to resoder the joint inside the system. I'd leave that to a pro, going back to the battery if you leave it out for a day that should give it plenty of time to discharge any energy it may have in it and you can plug it back into the laptop to try and charge it again either with the same AC power adapter or a new one. If the battery wont hold a charge and you know it isn't because the jack is loose or the AC power adapter isnt defective then you now know you need to replace the battery. You can google compatible batteries and power adapters online or search specific places like Newegg.com or Amazon.
Hope this gives you a better understanding of what may need to be done to fix this!!
ok it sounds like your battery was damaged when it discharged. try removing the battery and plug in to wall socket. boot computer ,.. if it boots up completely then you will need to replace your battery
