Hello,
I have been having the same problem with my laptop. The battery light blinks when the battery charger is plugged in. This doesn't happen all the time though. Sometimes I can get it to work, but I can't bump my laptop because the screen goes haywire and I have to shut the laptop down. Any ideas what the problem could be? I know it's not the hard drive. I'm thinking it's the battery or it's not getting a good connection. I have 2 batteries and they both do the same thing, although they probably aren't full of juice anymore. Help!

Laptops often have problems with the power plug pulling loose from the motherboard. Some times a repair shop can solder it back. Other times a repair requires a replacement motherboard.

Good Luck
