Try this:
  • 1) Disconnect the AC power adapter --> Remove the battery --> Hold the power button for 60 seconds --> Now reconnect the AC power adapter and try to switch ON the laptop. Later put the battery back into the laptop.
  • 2) If the problem still exists then click on the below link and follow the instructions

Good Luck
