Constantly flashing orange battery light (which prob tells me the battry has had it...no biggie)
since this flashing orange battery light i cannot get the:
-screen to display anything (with mains power) -no hard drive activity -no keyboard lights work inc keys
the laptop does actually power on i can hear the fans and see the power LED displayed but there is no HD activity and because the screen doesnt display anything (totally blank) i cannot even see if it has booted into the bios and cannot do anything on the keyboard as no keyboard lights work or the keys.
can anyone shed any light as to what could have gone wrong? Surely a "kaput" battery cant cause multiple things to go wrong with the laptop even on mains power.
