Hi, first things i would try is to switch it off all togther, remove the battery and power lead and leave it sit for 10 - 20 minutes to let any residual power drain from it.

once you have done this just plug the power supply back in without the battery and try to switch it on, if it works ok, plug the battery in and see what happens if it fails to start up after this its most likely the battery is at fault.

if it will not start up just on the power adaptor then there is likely to be a hardware fault with the laptop itself that may need someone with some computer repair experience to fix for you.

hope this help.s
