Hi my laptop is not switching on, the power supply unit is lit up, but on the laptop only the orange battery light is lit and no green mains light,pressing the on switch does not do anything and there is no sound of the fan etc. I have tried removing the battery and holding the on switch then plugging the power supply back in this brings on the green light for a second then back to just the orange battery light. Any ideas the laptop is out of warranty about 4years old has it given up the ghost or could I salvage it???

it sound as though your battery has died, if possible try to find a battery to fit that you can use to test, before you actually buy a new battery.
