W500 Start Up Power issues

2010-05-20, 22:37 PM

Hi,  Maybe someone can help me.


This is the second time this has happened:


I left my W500 unplugged in standby mode (closed) and it ran out of juice.  Fine.  Then I plug it back in to recharge and try to start up and it is not highlighting the graphic power outlet symbol- and will not start- even after days of remaining plugged in to various outlets.  I have removed the battery and tried the same thing.


When this happened previously I took it into a licensed repair shop. When they finally got around to it- it powered right on for them- no issues.


It is not the adapter as I have purchased 2 new ones now, both of which work on other laptops for which they are configured.


ideas anyone?
