my ibm labtop wazs working fine the previous night, this morning i find the power light is off. i try to turn it on but nothing. its plugged in and i tried changing the battery but it still wont power on. this has happened before and switching the battery has worked but this time it still doesnt
 
Try the following and see if it will turn on...

1. Unplug your charger cord.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Press and hold the "Power" button for 30 seconds.
4. Now plug back in the power/charger cord.
5. Now put the battery back in.

If this doesn't help, then test the power cord to see if it is good. Either try your cord in another device, or try another devices cord in your laptop. You may also want to try charging it when the device is off, rather than on. If it works then, the cord is probably the issue.

Should that not be the problem, then check the battery to see if it needs replacing.
