Answers :

Are you getting juice out of the power cord? You could use a multimeter to see that you are\015\012getting the rated power out of the brick. Sometimes it is as simple as\015\012a plug not making good contact.Find a voltmeter and test if the adapter puts out any power at all. Make\015\012sure the RAM is properly seated, unplug every peripheral (even the\015\012cd/dvdrom drive), power it up on direct electric power. Check if you can get\015\012into the BIOS (F2, or F10, or delete, or some random key depending on\015\012the manufacturer, that you press when you power up).

\015\012\011\015\012\015\012\011\015\012Most laptops have a little\015\012light showing that they are recharging when plugged in properly. Is there a green LED light? Alternatively, I had an old laptop where the brick had\015\012a removable power cord and one of the prongs in the adapter where the\015\012power cord plugged into the brick would sometimes get pushed in and\015\012fail to make contact. Once I had that plugged in properly, I never\015\012unplugged it again.

\015\012\011\015\012If it fails when trying to boot windows, you could always try to download and burn an ubuntu live-cd and boot from the CD to see if the problem is really your software.
