    I guess you tried taking out the battery and just try using the power cable right? You probably did, but, I thought I would run it by you, just in case.

    Some laptops will not work without a battery installed - dead or not, Weird - but I guess the contacts finish a circuit
    Possible some will not work without a working battery
    Or one of the contacts is messed up on the battery & the circuit is not complete

    It may have locked up in hibernation mode.

    Take the power cord out and take the battery out.

    Leave it a few minutes.

    Put the battery back in and put the power cord back in.

    Presto.

    Default laptop

    I would not invest in a new battery for it until I knew it was going to work.
