Alternative way of fixing dead laptops?

Solution to a problem on my other most favourite site.

"I wanted to update this in case anyone else had the same problem, plus I hate giving advice on cars and not getting feedback as to whether my advice was good or bad.....

Anyway, I managed to fix this problem a few minutes ago.

I removed the battery, plugged in the charger, fitted the battery whilst holding down the "on" button, tapped the battery and the laptop switched on .

It is now charging as normal and working fine.

Thanks to CRTHD, chrisjr, max99, and Sandgrownun for trying to help "

Is this a variation on 'discharging static' through the On/Off button?

Anyway, was news to me.
