Hi,

Try to unplug the adapter and remove the battery, while the battery and the adapter is disconnected from the laptop. press and hold the power button for about 10-15 seconds to drain the remaining power. then put the battery and the adapter back in.

Post a comment here if you need further help, thanks

You have may have either a battery or electrical issue with the laptop. If it's under warranty, take it in.

Otherwise, it is a pretty expensive fix (At least 100 dollars).
