My IBM R51 will not startup, boot or show show any light when connected to wall power

My laptop has working well every day.  I tried to start it up to today and NOTHING!

My battery has long been dead but if I plug into the external power supply it works great.

If I forget, I am quickly reminded to plug it in as I get the usual noisy reminder sound (like an ambulance sound).

Lately, when I startup, the screen is kind-of orangy-red but this corrects in a minute.


What is it?  Do I need to purchase a new battery?


Please help and thanks, I use my laptop for EVERYTHING, every day at work and home.
