If it is brand new, then you have warranty, I suggest you return it to the supplier to get it fixed, because if you do something to it you might void your warranty.

Yes I can try to help you, It could be in some kind of stand by or frozen for some reason.

ok, plug the mains power into it again,
if you have a usb stick of some kind insert one into its usb slot to give it some activity,
try holding down power up button

My advent modena m202 will only work through mains power supply. I have a brand new batter which I was only able to charge in my old laptop. so m202 is not charging and wont work with fully charged

If the battery is OK then there may be an issue with the contacts that connect the battery to the motherboard or the regulator on the mother board has failed due to a previously faulty battery, in which a motherboard repair is required.

Please remove the battery and power cord from the laptop then wait for 60 secs. and connect the power cord only and try to power on if the laptop do not power on then either dc jack or the power circuit board is defective.

My lap top wont switch on

It could be a loose RAM. Take it to the authorized Service center and if the problem is same as I suspect then you could get the problem fixed in just 10 minutes and probably for free.

My advent 6651 laptop will not work. the battery light is flashing blue and when i press the on off button it lights up then afer a minute it goes off but the screen never loads up

This issue might be with the RAM refixing if the power is fine.

Please rtefix the RAM once.
If the power also goes after 1 sce then please try without battery,If working the issue with battery if not then issue might be with mainboard.
