    I notice that when I plug in the power core I have no LED showing that the notebook its getting power from the wall. If I removed the battery it does power up but it shows an error for battery.

    Thank you for the info, I found out that I am NOT getting any juice coming from the AC adaptor cord, I use the same AC cord on my friends notebook and it does show that battery its charging. It looks like I have an AC problem with my Notebook but I dont know where to begin troubleshooting any ideas out there??? THX in advance.

I have seem power jacks break sometimes - was the machine working until the battery died??
if it knows its plugged it (charge light comes on) but does not turn on, it could be a bad keyboard (the power button is part of the keyboard) or some other internal problem. Hard to say without having spare parts around or a qualified hardware tech to check out the machine.

You could always order a keyboard and try it -they are cheap online and easy to install (i think 3 screws on the bottom of the machine with a keyboard icon next to the screw holes)

Hope this helps!

Lenovo- dont know model, has preinstalled XP on hidden parition, what is the function key to reload operating system?

Turn off the notebook. If yours is an Ideapad or 3000 series, press the Novo button. If you're on Thinkpad, I think it's called the ThinkVantage button... basically, it's the button that works (when Windows is on) to change the power scheme (in Ideapad) or to access one-button solution (in ThinkPad).

Ibm thinkpad r40

This could be a problem with the battery, try removing the battery and starting on the adapter only. If this doesn't work, then I'm afraid it is going to be a motherboard problem, most likely with the power management system, this is the most common area with this type of problem. You can take it in for diagnostics, but I'm afraid you're going to end up having to replace the motherboard in order to fix the problem.
