Question about Computers & Internet
SOURCE: BLINKING POWER LIGHT
When you restart your notebook do you have a blinking cursor when the system freezes? It sounds like you need to reset your BIOS. To do this, power off then on your unit, Press F10 to enter BIOS settings, and then F9 to reset the BIOS to default settings. (Your functions may be a little different but you can read your menu to see which function key to select.) Once this done, select "Save and Exit BIOS" This should get you going. As for the blinking light, sometimes this happens when the battery is not holding a charge. If your battery is new, try the BIOS reset first and comment on your results. I can guide you through the battery reset process, if needed. Good Luck.

Do you have another power cord to check? Most places like bestbuy is willing to let you test a universal power cord for your type of laptop before you buy. Usually in your case, the power cord or connector has gone bad. If you test the laptop at the store and it doesnt work then its your connector but if it works. you could consider buying that power cord.
