one day the screen went blank, power block light is solid when not plugged into computer - when power block is connected to laptop it blinks and the laptop will NOT power up.

I tried removing battery and power cord and holding down power button and the reinstalling power cord and battery, but there was no change - it still won't power up and the power block light still blinks when connected.
