    Okay, do you have any lights on at all? If it is in "sleep mode", there should be lights.

    The first thing you should try is: Unplug the power cable, remove the battery pack. Push and hold the power button for approx. 10 seconds.

    Plug the AC Adapter back into the laptop and try to power it on (without the battery installed).

    If that works, power back off the system and unplug it. Reinstall the battery, plug it back in and try again.

    Let me know about the lights.
