My Aspire E15 laptop is always on but goes to sleep after some time. I don't know if there was an update that required the laptop to restart or what but it won't start. I can't remove the battery because it is internal (Such a dumb thing to do). I've tried the paperclip in the tiny hole in the back several times but still nothing. The only sign of life I see is a flashing orange light when I press the power button. When I take my finger off the power button the is no longer there. Any ideas??

Try this:
1. Unplug AC power adapter.
2. Locate the battery reset pinhole on the bottom of the computer.
3. Insert a small paperclip in the battery reset pinhole. Hold the reset button for 4 seconds.
4. Let the computer sit for 5 minutes with no power.
5. Connect the AC adapter and power on the system.

If that doesn't work, then I would assume that something is faulty with the battery or mobo. You might need to take it to a local shop to let them troubleshoot the hardware unless you feel comfortable doing it yourself.
