    Earlier today after my wife had been gone for a little while she got back on her laptop to find it was double typing letters, she'd go to type r and it would respond with rt for example. While i was trying to fix that we ended up removing the battery on the bios screen due to it freezing up on us. Ever since then I have not been able to get it to turn back on. I've tried holding the power button for 30 seconds unplugged battery removed, windows plus b key and power key for 1 second, unplugging the cmos battery to no avail. Any ideas on what the problem could be? Its a HP pavilion g7 notebook with windows 8.

    So with the AC adapter plugged in, what is the status of the AC adapter light?

    Even with the laptop off, you should have some kind of light indicator right next to where the ac adapter plugs in.
