Re: will not turn on
The wrong adapter must have fried the motherboard. They dont have the conventional fuse but there is one there which they bridge in or around the cable adapter area it will look like its lifted or blackened slightly on the soldered side. You can try to bridge it by using a wide like screw driver in the area where the power source goes into the laptop. You shouldnt get a shock its an adapter......trace along the power route...if no success look on the top of the board and see if any thing looks blown like a resistor or capicitor. good luck!!! I know how you feel but its not the end of that laptop you can replace the motherboard at least youll have spare parts. Thats a good work horse that model? tinkering like your doing is learning good on you!

It is unfortunate that the computer is not turning on. Request you to try following the below steps which might help:
(1)Turn off the computer.
(2)Remove all the external peripherals like AC Adaptor, flash drives, battery, etc.
(3)Press and hold the power button for 30sec which releases the static on the computer (if any)
(4)Put back the battery and plug in the AC Adaptor.
(5)Let the computer charge for some time.
(6)Try turning on the computer.
If the computer doesn't turn on then check hoe the Power LEDs on the system, battery and AC Adaptor react. Then I can check and help you further.
if you plug in to charge your battery and its not charging replace the battery with a new one and a ac adaptor plug, just to avoid any more damage to your pc notebook, dont try to repair if you are unsure on what to do
Try first to remove the battery and connect the AC adapter to your laptop, you will use the power supply directly from the AC adapter without the battery. Turn on your laptop, then if its working normally as it should be,
Then try now to install back the battery then connect the AC adapter, turn it on. If still does not work, perhaps you have a problem with the battery.
yes the lap top can boot up with the ac adaptor without battery .but if there is a problem in its RAM the memory chip.it will still power on with adaptor but will not go further then that.or the other problem can be its main board getting short in between.get the laptop checked at proper professional repair center before further use as because if you just try to turn it on several times the internal components which are short will get heated and will short many other small components and the reparing cost will get increased.
1:) the battery is dead, and needs to be replaced ( suggest e-bay china seller for cheapest )
2:) the AC adaptor or dc socket on the motherboard is Faulty.
3:) motherboard fault, regarding charging circuit board.
Go for the most cost effective option First. New Battery. Then AC Adaptor. Finally would be motherboard replacement.
