If your power light flashes on and then goes off again it sounds as if your battery is flat. Take it out, plug in the mains power lead and try again.

In which case you may have a broken power connector on your motherboard. click here not an easy task if you have no soldering experience.

You could try one more thing though remove the battery and hold the power button for 20 seconds or so to "reset" the logic by discharging any capacitors.

or as Fruitbat says on another post "If you run on mains only leave the battery out, a dud battery will drag down the power and cause your booting problems."
