IIRC that model had known problems with the battery and the power connector. Check the cord with a multimeter to be sure its providing voltage to the computer. If it is you will need to check out and quite likely need to repair or replace the power connector. I am including a link to the guide that comes closest to assisting you with disassembly. Good luck.
