A couple of minor things that could cause this is the battery and memory. Try starting without the battery. Then remove the memory and try it with one chip in, then change them out and try. If these don't work, then the problem will lie with the motherboard, and will need professional diagnosing in order to locate the problem board component.

Both batteries could be dead. But if you bought a new battery, it's unlikely. I don't know what green light you see, but if it's on the power adapter, it just means it's turned on--not that it is charging.
Two possibilities: Your power adapter is bad or the motherboard is bad. Because you say the computer works if plugged in, then you have ruled out the adapter.
You should be checking/cleaning the battery contacts and if all else fails, going for a new motherboard.

Ibm thinkpad power supply problem ???


it actually sounds like something may be shorting out the system, remove the cd-rom and try it then, ive had an a20m do the same thing and it turned out to be the ram, so always check for the simplest, remove each 1 at a time and try to power it on again

Does the battery charge AT ALL
Before buying a new battery go to my computer hardware device manager you may just need a new driver.Update restart see what happens
If not then you do need a new battery.That should solve your problem.
