Sorry if I'm stating the obvious here, but afetr connecting up the mains lead you must press the round (silver?) power button on the keyboard panel to boot up the laptop.

Well if it were me, I would check the output voltage of the power transformer with a voltmeter. The output voltage should be written on the transformer. For instance...I just checked my Gateway transformer and it says output voltage is 19 volts. I set my voltmeter to DC Volts and placed the red lead (+) in the hole and the black lead (-) on the outside of the 'jack' (whatever you call the part that you push into the laptop). My reading was 19.42 V DC.
