Anyway, the laptop battery was very hot so i let it cool off for half an hour, turned it on and checked the BIOS for any problems. It all seemed fine, and then it turned itself off again the same as before. i did notice that the charger wasnt as hot as it normally is after charging. After this the laptop wouldnt even turn on, and it was at this point i got worried.
The next day i thought it could be just that it hadnt charged the night before (due to the dodgy connection). so i plugged it into my 12v charger (my house has 12v and 240v) and left it to charge, came back later and the charging light had stopped charging so i presumed it had charged. i unplugged it, pressed the power button and... nothing. not even any fans powering up. I also tried running straight from power with the battery out, but no luck.
Now the laptop wont do anything, the charging light doesnt even come on when plugged in now.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
