No Power on Avent 8117

The laptop can't get powered up. Even when fully charged when power switch is pressed the green light appears for a split second and disappears. The same thing happens if using pwer direct from AC mains source.

Maybe the battery is faulty as there appears to be no warmth coming off it. Or maybe the pwer switch. Any suggestions?

  1. Turn off the computer,
  2. Take the battery out
  3. Take out the power supply
  4. Push the power button down and hold for 30 seconds.
  5. Reconnect power supply
  6. Then the battery.
  7. Retry to boot

Hopefully this will rid the Mboard of static

I tried Fruit Bat's advice, but still no joy. I even took the battery out and tried to power up directly from the mains supply. Still no joy.

Am I correct in assuming that the battery is part of the circuit? thus explaining why it couldn't get powered up via mains supply?

I checked the power cable with a volt meter and I got a reading of the expected voltage. So am I correct in assuming that the battery must be at fault?
