Re: after a few minutes plugged in the power/battery...
I would check the power adapter. Test the power plug on the adapter with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher that the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the power adapter. If the voltage is zero or very low the the adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the power adapter is OK then the fault could be a faulty power socket on the laptop's motherboard. Plug the adapter's power plug into the laptop's power socket and wriggle the power plug, if the power/charge LED flashes then the socket may have a dry solder joint or the socket maybe faulty and needs to be replaced.
This is a common problem with laptops and to fix and/or replace the socket requires the laptop to be completely dismantled. Get a quote from a repair as it is not cheap.

The DC jack in the laptop is showing early signs of intermittent issues, the jack is solded to the motherboard which sometimes breaks free over time, this is something that will eventually need to be addressed.
to be sure that this is not a battery problem, you can plug your laptop into the AC power but remove the battery first. if your laptop can power on without the battery...then you have a battery problem. this is a very common problem with laptop batteries.
Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not, Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not, Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.
Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.
Hi there. The battery could be faulty, power off the laptop, take out the AC power and the battery wait 2 minutes and put the battery back in, turn the laptop an and look at the indicator LED to see if its changed, if it has plug in AC power and see if its the same.
Change your AC charger. It's NOT charging "When the laptop is plugged into the AC, the power meter in windows
tells me that the power source is still batteries, and the battery
level drops by about 1% every few hours" That's the reason why: "battery has completely died" If you do not change it you'll continue to "still it gives me the same low battery indication and will not turn on.
