Laptop died suddenly and is not charging

\015 I had my packard bell laptop off charger for about half an hour when it suddenly died. I resumed charging but it won't turn on and the battery lights are off so it is not charging either. Charger appears to be working otherwise.\015

Answers :

Take the battery out and discharge the capacitors by holding down the power button for 15 seconds. plug in the charger without the battery in to see if you get a charge light. If you do, replace battery and plug in charger and power on laptop. If this does not work, you may have to pull the cmos battery for 15 minutes and try it again.
Possible failure points. AC adapter cable could have a broken wire between adapter and system (I just had this issue, power was going to adapter, and coming out dc, but not reaching plug)\015\012
\015\012AC adapter could be putting out some DC power but not enough\015\012
\015\012Motherboard is bad. \015\012
\015\012So, try a known good adapter or check the output at the connector to the system with a multimeter. If the adapter is good, take out all removable items, Battery, drives, RAM, wireless cards and external connections, see if anything changes if there is a change, add 1 ram module back, see if system posts, if it does, slowly add items back till fault is found. If no change, replace motherboard
