Hi, im really hoping for some help, my brother has the above laptop, he leaves it plugged in all the time, well the other day there was a power cut, after that his pc worked fine, but the laptop wont.
basically when you press the power button, the power light comes on, and the CPU fan starts, the HDD doesnt spin at all, and then after 10 seconds the fan stops, and thats it, it just sits there with the power light on, rest is dead. could this be motherboard, or HDD???? or something else. please advise if posible.

You can try basic troubleshooting. Unplug the laptop, takeout the battery. With the laptop still unplugged, put the battery back in and power-on the laptop. If that doesn't work and you hear no beeping sounds, the motherboard maybe bad and needs replacing.

not knowing what operating system your are running i cannot navagate you there so go to control panel power options and hopefully you will see how to tell your computer when to sleep when to turn off hard drive and monitor etc so click on the when to sleep button and extend the time to what you think you may need and you can do the same for the hard drive because i think they are normally set to cut off after half and hour by default

Yes by leaving the laptop on all the time you could burn out the laptops back light. Set your power settings to turn monitor off after so many minutes of non use to save this. Further more I would recommend a chill pad under the laptop to help keep the CPU from getting to hot.
It's a common trouble for the power cord from the adapter to break inside the insulation near the plug. This is because of frequent flexing of the cord near the plug. When this happens you'll see the power light on the computer go out, and wiggling the cord sometimes gets it going again. Without the power input, the battery doesn't charge and the laptop won't stay running.
This sounds like what's happening to your computer, and should be fixed by replacing the adapter. Generic replacements are available at reasonable prices from online vendors and at Radio Shack and big computer retailers. It's also possible to repair the adapter by cutting the cord back and soldering on a new plug if you or someone you know has the tools and skills.
Please take a moment to rate this solution if it's what you needed. Thanks for asking here!
It sounds like a mother board problem since you upgraded the bios and got different results. Try plugging in the adapter and warming it up. Will the computer run without the battery? that will also let you know if it's the battery.
My initial thought was that your AC adapter may have a heat problem or failing after a while. Wrap it in plastic and put it in ice and see if it lasts longer. If you have the same problem there are other issues going on in the computer power system.
most likely it was the psu. You can actually test it yourself by buying a psu tester made by Antec that you should be able to buy in stores. It's a cheaper alternative to buying a PSU and just hoping that was the problem.
i have a eclipse that would cut power to the cd player when ever it wanted. it turned out that the yellow memory wire had a bad spot in it. i cut a chunk out and then made a fresh connection from car to cd player and has worked great ever since! give it a try.
