When the laptop is plugged in, the ikon indicating power from the wall comes on, but it is the only light that comes on. I removed the battery, then plugged the laptop into the wall, but nothing happened. I replaced battery and tried everything again but still nothing. I held the start button down for 6-10 seconds, then waited 10 seconds and tried to start it. Again, nothing. This machine is barely 6 months old.

Try plugging the charger into a wall outlet if you are currently plugging it in a power strip. If you are not try plugging it in another wall outlet. If that doesn't work you can try a hard reboot if the battery is accessible. To do this turn off the slimbook, unplug it, take out the battery and hold the power button down for 30 seconds. Once done put the battery back in, plug it back in and turn the slimbook back on.

When you say you "tried turning it on with the battery removed", did you leave it plugged into the wall with the charging adapter at the time? Please clarify that you tried to use it while plugged in without the battery and it would not power up? When you plugged it in without the battery, was the green charging light on? Or did you get no power light at all?
With your battery in, try using a different outlet to plug into. Plug it into another outlet and when the green charging light comes on press and hold your power button on your keyboard and do not release it for 30 to 45 seconds. Tell me if this boots up the pc even if just for a moment?
There are three lights on your keyboard that should come on when the laptop is plugged in and turned on. One is the power light, the other is the battery charging light and the last one is the hard drive indicator that looks like a round cylinder on the picture. Tell me when you plug it into the outlet and the battery charge light is on, does the hard drive light come on and/or flicker when you try to power up the laptop? How many lights come on when you press and hold down the power button with the cord plugged into the wall?
Try to connect the AC adaptor of your laptop and plug it to the wall outlet and let it charge for 3 hours or more. When you plug it on the wall socket, it won't show the laptop's led blinking since it was totally drained. But after 3 minutes or more, it will start to show the blinking led to indicate charging. When blinking stops led light disappears, it is fully charged and ready to use.
Remember: Do not use your laptop while it is plugged in to save your battery life. When at home, remove the battery while it is fully charged and plug the AC adaptor directly to the wall outlet. It will still work without the battery as long as it is plugged directly to the wall socket.
Do you still have the power cord plugged in? There are indicator light s for Battery operation, power on, hard drive activity. If you just logged off but the laptop is stillpowered on, then there will be a light indicating that. If you powered off the laptop but left it plugged into a wall outlet, then there is a chrging indicator that will stay lit.
