Have you tried to place the old battery back in and boot it? If not, try it without any battery. You should leave the power cord unplugged for about 15 min before you try again. also press the power buttons a few times while no power source is plugged in to drain any capacitors holding charge. This will insure the best reset on restart( in case something in the BIOS is frozen) it would not hurt to remove the BIOS battery as well during the 15 min wait.

Ok, if I understood correctly up until the failure. The terminal worked perfectly until you removed the failing battery and replaced it with a aftermarket one you purchased to replace the original with.

When you first plugged the top up after the battery installation, the terminal responded as usual. (charging lights lit up, things like that). After a bit of time the bat charge light changed its reporting status to full. (Green or Blue light) Then when you tried to boot it, it did not respond.

Oh. when did you notice that the battery light quit working?

Hi Philo, yes Iíve tried the original battery and it will not charge to full capacity as the charge light stays orange/red the replacement battery is a genuine Advent battery and wasnít fully charged (orange/red light) but now shows fully charged.

I shall try what youíve suggested regards removal & pressing & holding the power button, am I right this is classed as a hard reset?

The reason why i changed the battery wasnít only because it wasnít holding a full charge, but prior to this the laptop just stopped working & is hopefully assumed it could just be the battery.

Still no joy, when I unplug the PSU. And hold down the power button the battery light comes on for a split second.

I don’t know I think the MB is fried

Youíre a helpful fella Philo. Any advice on rebooting summer? This English winter thing is driving me mad!
Iíve got jump leads, but Iím not sure whose terminals to attach them to.... Maybe Bran, but I donít want to short the entire internet. All those reps exploding could do damage.

Thats very important, believe it or not. My first suspicion now is memory(RAM). A bad stick, or dirty connection to the memory slot. That alone will not allow the BIOS to even post, cause the MB has no clue as to its peripherals.

I would pop the ram cover off and wiggle both pieces of ram.(Random access memory) Just press in the retaining clips and wiggle them both in their slots. The top stick might have to be removed first to get access to the lower one if you have that configuration. One sec, let me look up your MB.

Yes that one has stacked memory. Also, you will need to remove the complete lower cover to access it(don,t panic). This unit does not have a access door just for the memory as far as I can tell from the repair PDF I have on it.

you can boot it with the lower case off to test. just flip it over easy, and have it on a non conductive surface(no metal table). If it still does not boot, swap in only one piece of memory at a time.Also, Swap between the two one at a time. . Its unlikely both pieces are bad. .
