Do you see anything on the screen before the laptop shuts down? Is the mains adaptor plugged in and showing as charging?

Probably a dead motherboard, but you could try re-seating the RAM just in case.

Do the checks, also try running from battery only' then remove battery run on mains to prove one way or another. If the light persist,but the machine keeps going, then ignore the light.

Assuming Warranty cover no longer applies that is.

A repair is not a likely prosect,and could cost a chunk of dosh to find out.

So run it till it runs no more.

Then get the next machine and do a HDD swap.
