I pulled the battery out and tried to turn it on but since it had no power nothing happened other than the power light and the battery light flashed very faintly. I plugged the power cord in and tried to turn it on but nothing happened there either. while the power cord was plugged in without the battery the power light and the battery light blinked every couple of seconds. when I put the battery back in with the power cord plugged in, the battery light did not turn on...normally it would be green or yellow (when charging).

Re: Powers on Immediately poers off
This could be a bad memory chip or slot problem. remove the memory and try one chip at a time in each slot. If this doesn't work then the problem will most likely be in the power management system on the motherboard. This will require professional diagnosing in order to track down the exact problem component.

if the poer light turns on but nothing happens on the system possible the power supply on the motherboard which distributes the power to all the components of your laptop. and this means that you will need to have you system motherboard replaced, if I may have you tried removing the battery ans turning the system on using the adaptor only ? try it it the system turns on possibly the batter is causing the motherboard some issue on distributing the power to the system and may need to be replaced, try the batt first before going to the option of replacing the motherboard ^_^
remove battery and then insert power cord and power it up. if it powers, then insert battery while laptop is on. otherwise, if it doesnt, get the battery charged from else where and insert it just to confirm that the power supply unit isnt spoilt.
Unplug your battery and then plug in AC adaptor and see if laptop powers on. I assume you power button doesnt turn on at all? If so, your motherboard seems to have a power issue. Unfortunately, you have to replace motherboard. If laptop. powers on withour battery then you then battery needs replacement.
ok well there is somwhere to start i would see if you can get it to take a charge ok and if it does than try to start it without the ac power on and see what it does if it wont take a charge your battery may be bad or your charging circuit may not be connected correctly ok lrt me know best regards mike
If you changed nothing apart from the hard drive I would remove it and then try restarting the laptop. If you get an OS not found message then check the pins on the hard drive (and caddy if there is one).
