Hey,, sounds like u got a stalled processor,, this normally happens when the processor got an over charge of power, therefore causing the board to store excess power ,, now as a failsafe the board wont power on the processor to prevent damage.. Now its really easy to fix and only takes a minute or two so dont panic..

1.) remove the side cover from the cpu
2.) locate the battery on the mainboard, its a flat, round battery like a large watch battery,, silver in color (u cant miss it)
3.) make sure the computer is unplugged and remove the battery.
4.) remove the rams,, its a slender long board about 3 inch long and and inch high, held in place with 2 clips on eighter ends,, pull the clips apart.
5.) press and hold the power button for 10 seconds,, (what this does is discharge the board)
6. replace the rams and battery
7.) plug it in
8.) turn it on..
Sometimes you need to do this a few times to get in order for it to work..

let me know what happens,,..

What does a orange power light mean


please see the commentary. God bless you

  • The majority of laptops will display a solid green, blue or purple battery light to indicate that the battery is fully charged. Most manufacturers indicate that a laptop is in the process of charging by displaying a solid or blinking green, orange, blue or purple light. If your battery indicator light is green, blue or purple, the battery is probably functional, regardless of whether the light is blinking. If the light is solid orange, the laptop is probably in the process of charging.

Battery Error Coneventions

  • Many battery manufacturers use rapidly blinking lights to indicate that a battery's charge level is low. In general, a laptop will rapidly blink orange or red when its charge drops below a certain level until the computer is plugged into a power outlet and charged. If your laptop's battery indicator continues to blink rapidly in orange or red or if it remains red even when it is plugged into the charger, it indicates a problem with your battery or the charger.
