My Dell Latitude D500 battery has alternating green lights. It shows a on, off, on, off, on pattern. it doesn't flash any codes. it's only when the battery is in the laptop and plugged into AC, does it show this pattern. When I take out the battery, none of the lights light up.

My Acer Aspire 5920 is not booting up. When the power supply is plugged into the wall, its green LED is solid. As soon as I plug it into the laptop, the light starts to flash. When connected to the AC Adapter, none of the usual battery charging lights on the laptop are on. I tried the Power reboot suggested on the ACER site, but to no avail (where it tells you to hold the power button pressed after taking the battery out and disconnecting the power supply).

My sony vaio vgn-fs285e will not switch on since this morning. Even if the AC adapter is plugged-in it still won't come on. None of the lights come on, it won't run with the battery pack or just AC power.

Plus whether there is anyway I can fix this or do I just get my hard drives removed to access the info on it and recycle the laptop. Thank you
