This problem of yours and base from the description that you have provided its a sign of dead battery that causes the problem, so what you can try for this one if there's any computer or electronic store near you that offer battery repacking that will be fine, but if not try removing the battery and just connect the laptop to a power outlet for about 1 hour and then try to power it on and see if its working, but if still not the laptop needs servicing for its power source/power supply.

Hi,
Turn it on - after of course you build the battery -
while it is booting - tap the DELETE button - - this will open DOS - at the top of the opening page -set the DATE and TIME
press SAVE - of F-10 - and exit - saving settings -
reboot and consider putting an internal battery in it - should cost 10.00 for the battery installed -

Why won't my car start? no lights interior/exterior.


It seems that the battery is incapable of holding a charge. You might try disconnecting the battery cables and try charging the battery again over night. Reconnect and see if anything works - if nothing works - it's time for a new battery.

Why is this happening


Before you go any further, have the battery checked. If there is an internal problem, it will create all kinds of problems like this.

Try letting the computer sit without the battery for a few minutes, and also without external power. Then try plugging in your external power WITHOUT the battery and try to start it up. If it does, add the battery while it is running. Then try it with the battery only.
