No charging LED light at all when plugged into AC Adaptor, thereafter tried the following:
1) Removed battery and plugged into AC Adaptor, nothing lights up as well
2) Only battery in, tried powering on, nothing happens.
3) Tried brand new battery bought from service centre the previous day (Oh, the irony of it all!), same as 2), nothing happens.
Charger is definitely working as tested using multimeter.
Looks like it's something wrong with the voltage regulator/some other power component? Laptop is 18 months old.
Wondering if this is the case, how fast can I get it fixed? I am flying off in a few days for quite a few months and I was supposed to bring the laptop with me, so hoping I can get it fixed in time! (looking at about 2-3 working days left?)

Sounds like some device inside is dead. By sympthoms it' mobo or cpu - all others won't caue such a behaviour.
Bad luck. Way to service centre or new laptop buying procedure...
