Hello. So I've been having problems with my laptop's power of late.

When I connect the charger both the orange charging indicator and the green light on the AC adapter blink. If I take out the battery the charging light doesn't even flash and the computer does not power on.

I've found that it does charge, but it charges extremely slow. I left it on the charger for about 8 hours and it had only gone up to 14% from 0% before I had left it to charge. After that I powered it on and saw there was no charging indicator on the battery icon within the OS.

I opened up the laptop to check if there was anything wrong with the cables, didn't see anything that really stood out. I uninstalled/reinstalled the ACPI drivers, but that didn't do anything.

And if it helps the problem started after I repeatedly turned it on and off trying to access the boot menu. Pretty sure I may have messed it up :(

Shouldn't it at least be able to power up with just the charger? I've used it like that before, but it doesn't work like that now.
