I had this problem.

Remove the battery from the compartment and plug the power supply in. Try switching it on, without the battery in the compartment. Should be OK then :thumbsup:
This is one of the reasons i always tell people if considering buying a laptop make sure the salesman shows it working without the battery.
The reason being some laptops can't function without one so removing it won't point to a particular fault unless you know for sure whether or not it should work.
Know anyone with the same model?, could be a duff battery so try and borrow one, but then again could be the charger or internal power distribution (or a few other things)
Dare suggest checking the fuse? Sometimes the most obvious things are overlooked.....!
