Question about Computers & Internet
I left the laptop in sleep mode in a carry case (with half empty battery) after unplugging the charger for 5-6 hours. It then won't turn on so I thought it was a flat battery. After fully charge the battery it still won't turn on with either battery only, AC only or both sources. The Numlock, Capslock and Scrolllock LEDs turn briefly on for a couple of seconds then off when the Power button is pressed. There is no screen activity, no sound of anything moving inside the laptop. However the charging circuit seems working as normal.
When lithium batteries discharge past 1.5 volts they can cause havock. Take the battery out of the system (if this is the one that discharged I would throw it away), disconnect the AC and try turning on the system. Of course it won't come on but If there's been a clitch, this tends to clear the system. Then put in a fresh battery and connect the AC. If this doesn't work then buy an external box for your present hard drive and connect it to your new computer to get your data.
