Toshiba Laptop Power Failure

I desperately need help with my laptop. After shutting down my Toshiba laptop and restarting it several hours later,nothing happened. The Power indicator LED is lit however nothing else is, not even the battery charging indicator. Nothing starts up at all.

Could this be a battery problem or something more severe like a hard drive failure?

try taking the battery out & booting using the mains power only

Thank you very much, it started straight away.

Obviously a knackered battery.

Not necessarily. Leave battery out and disconnect from power supply. Hold the power on button for 15 seconds and then re-assemble. Now the battery might work again after a recharge.
