Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished.
Can you remove the power cable, then hold the power button in for 60 seconds then release.
Then turn it off without the power cable and tell me if it then starts please.

Thanks
It is either the voltage regulator or battery that has faulted.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to take in the notebook to have a diagnostics run on the mainboard so that this can be tested. If this is at fault, the motherboard will need replacement else the battery would need to be replaced. The battery replacement has minimal costs and is a quick job to replace. If following the diagnostics the motherboard is at fault, get a cost for the total replacement (including labor) as this can exceed the cost of a replacement notebook.
But it is one of these two that has faulted
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
