It may be a problem with the battery which may be wrongly place or fried as you say. Remove it and check it.
 
How do i check if the battery is ok??

It was flashing before ... then i unplugged my laptop and restarted it and worked off the battery! Got a new power cable as i thought that was the problem but it wont start or do anything now!!

Thanks

Rhys

With that laptop, you can remove the battery and run it from the power supply alone.
I've seen/dealt with this problem before and your DC jack has come loose
from the motherboard-a connection or 2 may have disconnected from plugging/unplugging the power supply. Be very careful because 1 wrong move with the jack can fry your computer.
 
Hey

That at least sounds positive... I have just handed over my laptop to my friend who works in PC World and he suggested the same...

Thanks for your reply i will let him know!

Thanks

Rhys :)
