  1. Turn off the computer,
  2. Take the battery out
  3. Take out the power supply
  4. Push the power button down for 30 seconds.
  5. Reconnect power supply

try on mains only if boots OK then refit battery and try a reboot with the battery fitted.

Power cable from the main going into the laptop,When you log off just pull the plug out of the laptop.
