If this does?nt work for you than try to remove RAM and follow the instructions carefully:
Remove the power adapter --> Battery --> Also remove the RAM ---> Turn your laptop upside down --> Hold the power button for 5 mins to remove static electricity --> Leave the laptop for 30 mins ---> Later put the RAM back into the slot properly --> Plug the AC adapter --> Switch ON your laptop.
