HELP! Toshiba Satellite C50D-A wont turn on


My work computer (as described in the title) won’t turn on and I’m getting desperate.

This morning it was working fine however suddenly the battery light started flashing and it was no longer charging. I first soft reset it, but that didn’t help, so then I attempted a hard reset, after which the computer refused to turn on at all or even flash the battery light when plugged in.

I have tried multiple hard resets involving removing and replacing the battery.

The computer will not even turn on *without* the battery simply plugged in to the charger.

Please help. I’ve had this computer for many years and need it to do my job.
