Hello,
As explained in the title my laptop will not power up. I have followed the discharge instructions ( unplug power supply, pull the battery, hold the power button for like a minute) when I connect just the power supply and try to power it up the screen light near the track pad lights up for 10 seconds and then goes off. No boot scree,n no mother board logo, nothing. When I do this with the battery in the battery light is luminated and the screen light dose as before and then flash's orange afterwards. Please help

Hello Mike,

When you plug the charger into the jack, if there's no noise coming form the laptop, but only blinking lights for a while and the warranty of your laptop has expired I suggest you to open it. While opened, take out the hard drive and try to connect it to another computer through SATA-USB cable. If the HDD doesn't spin at all, anywhere, then it has failed mechanically and needs replacement.
If your hard drive spins up on a different computer and it is recognized there, but cannot power up on your laptop, then the problem is hiding probably in the power supply unit on your motherboard.

Hope that I helped you.
