    Remove the battery and try booting with the AC adapter only. Also, if it still won't boot, remove the AC adapter and battery. Hold the power button down for about 30 seconds. Release the button, plug in the AC adapter and see if it boots. If all this fails to improve booting, the motherboard may be the problem
