Try it unplugged from the ac, then try it plugged into the ac without the battery. It's probably a bad power supply, or battery, or the charging circuit on the motherboard.

Probably in sleep mode...

Take out the battery for a few seconds or try holding down the power button for 10 seconds.

Oops!  Hit the submit to quick.

After holding down the power button for 10 seconds wait a couple more seconds and power it back up.

Have tried all the above with no result, have tested the power supply and It is producing the 19.5volts that it is rated to produce, I,m not sure how to test the amp output.

It's not probably the best thing you want to hear it, but you most likely have a faulty notebook and it really can't be possible to tell the exact problem. It will most likely be a faulty mobo. Your laptop should work fine plugged in with no battery.
I hope you have warranty for the thing, because if you don't you'll find that it will be way cheaper to buy a new one rather than reparing the old one.
