You may not let battery go total out of power. Charger do not can't start charging if battery is totally dead.
Solution: take 2 wires 10cm take Asus charger and put wire to + and another to - then take your laptop battery and other end of wire to + contact and another to -, plug in charger and let it be 10 seconds, after that take wires off and put battery to laptop and charger to laptop plug. Voila' now orange light is on and charging starts.

I have also such a same computer, and I Had this problem also. This is a serial error of the computer!!! If you let it discharge completely, like leave in stand by until the battery runs out, than the charging doesn't starts anymore by itself. The battery isn't died, just it must be kicked in with an other charger. This is what the mechanic guy said to me in his letter, after he did it. So I don't know which legs must be charged, but it is possible to use still.

If the notebook works while plugged in the it is the battery. If more than a couple years old then it may need to be replaced. First try recalibrating the battery. There maybe a utility in the BIOS, CMOS, System Setup or in the control panel to do this. If not, see if there is a utility to download from the manufacturer's site.
If the laptop does not work at all then it is probably the power jack on the motherboard. This would have to be fixed by swapping out the motherboard, replacing the jack on it or taking to a local technician.

Hope this helps!

Why does my asus notbook not turn on and is blank?

Sounds like the battery is completely flat.
Ensure your charger is plugged into the mains socket and plug into your notebook. Leave to charge for about an hour, then it should switch on.
When you have finished using it, make sure it is shut down correctly and leave it charging over night for a full charge. (When it is switched on whilst charging, it takes much longer to charge.)

Could be a bad battery or charging circuits of motherboard. If laptop boots up when plugged in check under your control panel for power options then look to see if it shows charging. If it shows your charging but the battery doesnt charge then you have a bad battery
