My laptop won't turn on! The battery charging light indicates that it is charging but it is not turning [power] on! Is it the battery that died? But, wouldn't my laptop still be able to charge if it's connected to the charger even without the battery?

Any help would be much appreciated!

I suggest you try the hard boot process:
  • Remove the battery and disconnect the charger
  • Push and hold down the power button for 30 seconds
  • Replace the battery and power cord
  • Start the laptop normally

This sometimes starts laptops that are stuck in limbo.

Good Luck!
Thank you this was so very helpful to me.
