1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The power button could be bad.
5. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

My controllers wont sync to the ps3 or charge on it but they charge when i plug them into the PC. i had the "Maximum power reached" message thing plop up then my ps3 crashed and now they dont...

yea i have noticed my ps3 isn't charging stuff either it only does charge when its turned on im pretty sure theres a setting to charge while the ps3 is off To sync:
  • Connect the USB cable (provided with the controller) into the data USB port on the top of the controller. Insert the other end of the controller into one of the two USB ports on the front of the system.

  • Power on the television and the Sony PlayStation 3. You are going to see a series of lights flicker on the top of the wireless controller.
  • Press the PS3 button in the middle of the controller. This tells the gaming system it is connected. A single light appears on the controller.
  • Remove the gaming controller from the PS3. You can now use it wireless. It is also possible to remove the USB cable from the PlayStation if it is blocking your field of view.

    pairing feature. Long press (5 sec.) the speaking volume minor adjust up button on
    back of base until the power indicator light flashes.
    2. Place a charged headset in charging cradle and red indicator light on base will flash
    for 2 seconds if the multi-shift pairing feature is enabled. Within 10 seconds of
    doing so, press either the "+" or "-" listening volume button for 3 seconds until the
    headset talk indicator lights to indicate pairing mode, and goes out after successful
    pairing. Repeat steps

    This sounds like the power jack is damaged, which is a common fault, it will most likely mean the complete removal of the motherboard if you say what model the laptop is I might be able to write you a strip down procedure.
    It is simple enough to solder in a new power jack it’s getting at it.
    You should be able to get a replacement for about £3.
