My HP 225 seems to have stopped working.

It was working fine however I did not use it for around a month and it now seems to have died.
I have reset the ram as HP recommended however it changed nothing.
When I plug the charger in a white LED next to the charger port lights up however when I click the power button the LED turns off til I release the button, I also tried this without the battery in however it yielded the same results.
I have left it to charge for a while but nothing happened.

What could be causing this?

First try this:

Hold powerbutton with unplugged charger and plugged in battery for 10 seconds.
Remove battery and hold for 30-40 seconds.
Place back battery and hold for 30 seconds.
Now plug in charger and see if it boots.

This is an hp sequence from a couple years back that you had to do if something like this happend. Might still work and no harm in trying.

Likely, your battery has failed and needs replacing.
There are electronics inside a battery that need to be compatible.
Some laptops need a sound battery present to run on wall power.
So, do not buy a generic replacement, buy only a more expensive HP qualified replacement.
