I cannot turn on the computer, and there are no indicator lights lit on the front. This is with the unit plugged in and not plugged in on battery power. Took the battery out and plugged it in and still nothing.
It is either the ac adapter or the ribbon/cable that connects from the power on button to the motherboard. I disassembled the same model with the same problem and found that the plastic cable/ribbon fastener on the mother board was broken. If that is the case you may be able to use some type of adhesive that is also an electrical insulator to repair the problem.

Hi, Providing the laptop has not been upgraded then these are its specs >>> The processor is an Intel Celeron M 360 1.4GHz The hard drive is 40GB (upgradable to 360GB) The RAM (memory) is 256 DDR (upgradable to 1GB or 2GB with a BIOS flash) Let the buyer flash the BIOS. The screen is 15 inch
try running it without he battery, check if the fan is working, could be an overheating problem. Do you get any windows errors? install spreedfan utility and let it read internal temperatures plus fan rpm(rounds per minute) if it gives you a warning, the shut down, clean the intereior using compressed air only (bicycle/ball pump) to remove any inside dust or carefully disassemble the notebook + clean after you have read the manual and know which screw hold which parts. when cleaning with compressed air, remove the lid for RAM+Harddisk+pull out the battery pack to ensure circulation! now you have made sure the fan isn't stuck with dust and can't hang... reassemble and boot up, look if fan is running... still the prob: do come again, please reboot and wait for error...
There are one of 2 things that are happening. One, the reader on the CD drive is dusty, so carefully check the head, it is a luminescent bulbish thing in the middle of the open drive. Otherwise, your CD's (including past cd's) may have been dusty, and damaged the drive, in which you need to replace the drive. If your computer is under warranty then send it back and tell them this.
First take out your battery. Now plug in the AC adapter and turn on the unit. If it comes on, then let the battery "Rest" for a couple of hours. If it does not come on then your unit needs to see a reputable repair person.
The battery is flat and possibly the adapter or the power connector on the laptop is faulty and therefore could not charge the battery.
Get a multimeter and check the voltage on the plug that plugs into the laptop, it will let you know if the power adapter is faulty or not. If possible borrow one and connect it to your laptop, make sure the adapter is the same as your one.
Have you checked your power adapter with a digital multimeter? Maybe run it by your local radioshack or computer super store if you dont have a DMM and see if someone can check the voltage on it. Maybe your adapter died, then the laptop was running on battery until it went dead.
Another quick check, remove the battery all together. Plug in the ac adapter... does it turn on? does it show any lit led's indicating it is plugged into the wall? try wiggling the connector at the jack on the laptop, does that light any led's or cause power to be restored?
