Question about E-Machines M6805 Notebook
Ok, last night I completely shut down my laptop through Windows and turned it off. I unplugged it from the wall just to be safe in case if a storm kicked up. Anyways this morning I go to turn it on and I get nothing. No lights, no anything. Everything is plugged in how it normally is but I can't get a response from the computer. So I flipped the computer over and took the battery out, after messing with the battery I slid the battery back in at an angle and for a brief second the orange light kicked on but then it goes right back off again. So I held it back at that angle again and the light would kick on for a sec but back off. It won't even come on when the battery is put back in the slot how it is normally. I'm trying to figure out if its my power supply or a battery issue. Does anyone have any ideas? I've had my power supply plugged in all day and its ice cold, usually its extremely hot. I dunno, but if anyone does, please let me know.
You may have a contact issue in the battery compartment.
I don't think this will help but you can try using a pencil eraser to scrub the battery pack's contacts and, if they are accessible, the compartment's contacts too.
The situation (brief flash of LEDs) you are describing sounds like a battery pack on its last legs but it may be only that it has not been charging for a while.

You need to try booting in Safe Mode with Networking and if that fails then Last known good configuration should work. Below are the steps to perform Last known good configuration howver Safe mode with networking is also an option under "windows Advanced option". Now if you succeed logging in to Safe mode with networking then try performing system restore by going to Start....All Programs....System Tools and System restore.
Follow the steps below,
Step 1: Shut down your PC completely.
Step 2: Turn on the Power button.
Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.)
Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Last know good configuration".
Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.
Step 6: your PC will boot to the windows.
All the Best
