I've been having the same problem. I did as you said, removed the battery and plugged into AC with no luck. Till a couple of days ago, I was having this problem intermittently. When it turns off, I was able to turn it on again. But now, it doesn't turn on at all.
After about 10 or 15 seconds, it turns off automatically.
It's a HP Pavillion dv6119us model ( warrany expired on dec 13th :( ).

Re: doesn't start up
Remove the primary battery and plug the computer into an AC outlet using the AC adapter. If the computer starts up, one of the batteries need to be replaced. If the battery light on the of the comoputer is blinking, the battery has reached a low batery level, which may not allow the computer to start up. Plug the computer into an AC outlet using the AC adapter to start the computer and allow the battery to charge.

How to Reset BIOS on the GA-X58A-UD3R<span style="font-style: italic;">Motherboards often include hundreds of settings in the BIOS to adjust
the performance and stability of your computer. Many of these settings,
when improperly configured, can prevent the computer from booting. The
traditional way of resetting the BIOS when it doesn't boot is to open
the case and place a jumper on the motherboard or remove the battery for
several minutes. Most newer motherboards include a reset button near
the peripheral ports. The Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R uses this more
convenient method.</span><br /><br />
<ol style="font-style: italic;">
<li>Power down your computer by selecting "Shut down" in the Windows task
bar or press the power button on your case for four seconds. Leave the
power cable plugged in and the switch on the back of your case in the
<li>Press the "Clr CMOS" button on the back of your computer for five
seconds until the computer boots. The button is located with the
peripheral ports between a USB port and the coaxial S/PDIF port.</li>
<li>Press the "Delete" key when your computer starts up to enter the BIOS setup.</li></ol>

When I try to restart it the computer tries to restart but then shuts down again within a few seconds....!!!!!

Sounds like it is stuck in hibernate mode. Hold the power button down for 5 seconds and try to start it again. If it doesn't start remove the battery, unplug the laptop, hold the power button down for 60 seconds. Now plug in the power supply but leave the battery out. Turn it on. It should start now and you can re-insert the battery.
Remove the battery and leave off for about 1 minute. Put the battery back in place and press the power button to turn the unit on. immediately after you see system light come on, press and hold the power button and see if it shuts off after a few seconds. If not, then its likely your motherboard is defective.
Hi, by pressing the power button in, the computer has gone into standby or hibernate mode.
Heres what you Do:- press and hold the power button for between 10 to 20 seconds.
that should bring it out of hibernation.
if that does,nt work. remove the main battery.
when you,ve resolved the problem, run a disk-scan via your windows operating system.
