Title:

Why can't I turn on the laptop?

Text:

I've been unable to power up the laptop. Not sure why, but I do know someone turned off the power to my AC adapter (my battery died a few months ago, so I don't use one) and I haven't been able to turn on the laptop ever since.

When I connect the power cable to the laptop, the power symbol (the two-pin head icon) lights up. However, when I press the power button, nothing happens and the two-pin head icon goes out. If I remove the power cable and plug it back in, the symbol lights up again.

Anyone think they can help?

Device:

IBM ThinkPad T41
