LG x110 laptop power supply problem: I let my laptop run out of battery and shut itself down. After plugging it in I noticed the battery light, which usualy stays lit, was flashing nervously. I attempted to start the computer but to no avail. I removed the battery and tried again using only plug-in power supply. No luck. Power button flashes once quickly when pressed, but nothing else happens. Without the battery the light stops flashing though. Any ideas? There were no power surges at the time.
