Power cord was frayed, not receiving charge, tested a friends adapter (same as mine) and it charged the battery. Before I could purchase new adpater, my son ran the battery dead.
Bought new AC adapter, when AC adaptor plugged in, AC led is on and green, but led lights on laptop do not come on and it will not power up at all. Took battery out and put back in, tried to power without battery, still no lights on laptop.
Does this sound like a battery problem? I was under the impression that the laptop would power up w/out a battery in it?
Is there anything I can do diagnostically (take in for testing somewhere) that can pin point the actual problem?
Please help, I'm in college full-time and my classes are all online this semester!
Thanks in advance,
