Re: will not boot up or turn on though it is getting...
Disconnect the AC adapter and remove the battery, then press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. Connect the AC adapter but don't install the battery. Press the power button and see if the laptop powers up. If it does not power up, test the AC adapter output voltage with a voltmeter or try another AC adapter that provides the correct voltage / amperage. If the laptop powers up with only the AC adapter connected. shut it down, disconnect the adapter, and install the battery. Then connect the adapter and try to power the laptop up again. If the battery is completely drained, you may have to let it charge for a while (10 to 30 minutes) before the laptop will turn on.

unplug your laptop, remove the battery and wait for three minutes. then install back your battery and power on. right after you power on your laptop press shift key together with f9. release the keys when the laptop begin to boot. follow the instruction on the display.
Which ever way round you plugged in should not have resulted in what happened.
You should have a green light on the adaptors case when plugged into the mains weather it's plugged into the laptop or not, if not check the plug fuse.
Is it the correct adaptor for the Laptop? TO CHECK look at the underside of the adaptor the output voltage and amps should be the same as on the base of the Laptop.
Hold the power button down for longer than 5 seconds to ensure the Laptop is off.
Remove the battery and try with just the adaptor plugged in ONLY if its the same output voltage as the laptop.
Remove the memory stick and replace then try and boot again this can sometimes reset the computer.
Leave the adaptor plugged in with the Laptop off to try and put some power in the battery and then try with just the battery.
I have a feeling the adaptor is faulty and it was coincidental that the laptop switched off as you plugged it in, I think you just ran out of battery power.
If in doubt get an electrical shop to test the adaptors output.

Can you tell if your AC power cord is working? (Is there a light on the computer that comes on when it's charging?) If the power pack went dead, your battery could've died and now you get no power to the PC which is why it won't boot up.
To test, take out the battery and plug the AC cord in and try to boot up. If nothing at all happens without the battery, then your power cord or power pack is dead, and you just need to replace it.
Four possibilities come to mind. 1. Your power supply is bad and the battery ran down. 2. Your system board died. 3. You have a bad device plugged into a USB port. 4. Your battery is bad and holding down the AC power. To troubleshoot, disconnect all external devices, even remove the CD drive if possible. Try to boot. Next, boot with just the battery. Next, boot with just the AC supply. That's about it. If you still have no power at boot, it is the system board.
fails battery out so leave it out they love to short.
so when it fails test 2 is, hit the F10 or ESC key promptee
went it fails to boot, check BIOS key first, if BIOS fails.
be more clear.
what does it do when it wont turn on.
BIOS dead. screen 100% dead, and not even text
BIOS works even with HDD and DVD drive pulled.
that is the acid test on PCs.
the screen must say, hit F10? or ESC to enter setup, means HP BIOS. it must or power is no good. get a new power pack
the shut down tell me lost power, that can be the power pack 19vdc
or the jack at the mobo if failing to said pack.
try side pressure on that jack if at anytime the power button fails.
it self shuts down, I got that but lets fix , cant boot first.
that is how to fix this.
power on failures, are you saying the power key fails. some times
and the fan does not run every time.?
this old LT uses CCFL back lamps.
that love to fail. so when it shut down did the fan die.
did the HDD stop spinning ear to bottom? if not the CCFL is failing.
using and external monitor proves this every time,
do the flash light trick?
Sounds like it was already shutting down or going into standby when you plugged it in.
If this is the case, remove the AC adapter and battery then press and hold the power button for 30 full seconds. This will break the stuck power cycle it's in. Once you've done that replace the battery, plug the power in and turn it on. It will most likely give you an error regarding either not shutting down properly or not being able to load the hibernation file. In either case acknowledge and disregard the error then it should boot back up normally.
If this doesn't work, respond back here with whatever additional info you can and we can persue the other possibilities.
Check to see if the monitor shows up in the device manager.
Right click 'my computer'
click 'device manager'
look for any yellow question marks beside the 'monitors' heading.It is possible there might be a loose connection. You should take it to a shop (unless you comfortable dismanteling your laptop) and have them check it out.
I hope this helps. Let me know how you made out, and please rate my answer.
remove battery and try ac-power if laptop boots up then battery need replacing but if no laptop bootup then take it to be repaired and tell the tecnition what happened and he or she will try other options to get you going again.
good luck on problem.
