My laptop turned off suddenly and won't turn back on. My charger is working as the green light is on but when I plug it into my laptop the orange light doesn't turn on to indicate my laptop is charging. My laptop is 7 years old but do you think getting a new battery would fix it?

Thank you for the reply. It also started making a static sound when the charger is plugged in. I think that might be from the fan which I know isn't working because my laptop would overheat a lot. Do you know how much it would cost to replace the motherboard? Its an acer laptop.

If you need someone to do the work, I would just buy a replacement. Even a used working one of the same model as yours, and just plop your drive in it. You can get a good 3-4-5 year old laptop for $200 or less for some models. If you get a different one than yours, don't move the drive over since it will likely not boot or crash often.
