Question about PC Laptops
Laptop was working fine when I was on it one night. Battery was at 99% charge when I decided to shut it down and got to bed. It shut down just fine. I unplugged the power supply and put it all away. The following night I went to turn it on there was nothing. When I plug in power supply the green light on the power pack lights up. When the battery is in the Laptop the battery light on the Laptop lights up orange. Ok now while this is on, I remove the battery and the battery light indicator on the Laptop goes off. The Laptop still will not start up when I push the power button. No lights lit on Laptop. Then I plug battery back in and the battery light comes back on the Laptop but still nothing when I try the power button. Yet the power supply pack light is on. I do notice that the power supply pack is no longer heating up like it does when charging the battery. The Laptop is 2 years old. So I was wondering if it is the power pack, battery, hard drive or the motherboard having a problem. Please help me figure it out. Thank You in Advance.
Don't know what you have for a laptop, so will have to give you a generic process, here. Power down. Remove hard drive, remove cd reader and/or floppy drive. Remove memory cards. Replace only 1 memory card in the main slot (probably marked as slot 1). Try to power it back up and let us know what happens.

First thing I would do is get a multimeter and check the power supply at the plug. Most are rated 19 volts.
Look at the power supply label to check yours.
check the tips. the middle one is + and the outer shell is -.
Let me know what you find.
