Hi

Does the laptop's external power adapter have an LED on it? If so, does this light up green when plugged in?

Have you tried powering the laptop on without the power adapter connected (i.e battery only) & have you tried it with the power connected but no battery?

there is usually a light that glows when plugged in , or when off battery.
but no lights at all are showing now.

suspect that the power supply has stopped working (unnoticed during a session) and this has flattened the battery also.

just wondering if it is worth getting a new power lead , or is there an internal fuse perhaps ?

any advice welcomed .

I would make sure that the outlet on the wall is good and then check the output voltage from the power supply with a volt meter.

Is there a light on the actual power pack itself though? If so, does this still light up?

Big...all you need is a volt meter. You can buy a decent one for around $15 or so. It's something that will come in handy down the road, I'm sure. It's easy to check the output voltage of your power supply....
