How old is your laptop?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
5 years

Ok. It sounds like the power board in the actual device has gone itself. To be completely honest, the money you would spend on repairing this is counter productive. You are better off purchasing a new laptop, and transferring everything from your old one, onto the new one (a local computer store will be able to help you with that, it's a 2 second job). I have to give honest and the best advice, laptops are only built to last generally between 3-5 years.
