Answers :

Im not sure but there is normally a button somwhere on the laptop which acts a a reboot button. normally very small and have to press it using a pin etc. You could try that then turn it on but not sure if it will help?
Remove the battery and try to power on with A/C. If the laptop works, the battery is faulty. If the laptop does not work, could be an AC adapter problem.

Battery meter is low, even though computer is always plugged in


My first reaction would be that you have simply worn the battery out already and it can no longer hold a charge. Discharging and re-charging constantly will do that even in a year. Or leaving it plugged in 24/7 for week at a time can hurt it as well. ... Acer Aspire 6920 Notebook PC

Latitude 531 battery problem- I was using the laptop with the battery, when suddenly, with no warning that the battery was low, the screen went blank. I can use it plugged into AC power, but there is a blinking red and green light on the right, just under the screen, in between where the power indicator light is on one side and the wi-fi light on the other side. Do I need a new battery? Did I somehow fry my old one, or is it something else? Is this a problem anyone else has had? Thanks!!

My P30 laptop never worked well with its power management settings. It always just died without warnings when the batteries ran low whatever the manager settings were even from new.
