HP DV1000 complete power outage

My 2-year-old HP Pavillion notebook DV1000 went dark and now shows no sign of power, outlet, battery, Quickplay: nothing. Dead as the proverbial door nail. I attached an alternate power cable with no results. Could it be the battery? An error message blinked on just as the system went down (and too quickly for me to get the entire gyst of it) I'd like to say that it was the "power is low, connect to an outlet" message, but I can't be sure. Help!

Pull out the battery and supply it just from AC adaptor. Does it work?

I did and it still doesn't power up. I tried with the original AC power cord and a universal power cord and still nothing, absolutely no sign of the unit having any charge or energy source. It was low on battery power just a few minutes before it blacked out. When I plugged it in to the AC socket I noticed it  wasn't charging and just as I was thinking "that's odd" it went "Dernk". Any further suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, hope you'll get it up. I think (evident for now) the battery is the matter and must be replaced.

Maybe the universal power cord is not what it needs. Call an electronist to verify its polarity. Maybe it was to blame for the issue. The laptop must be powered on with out the battery very well, so let the battery outside while you test the cable or else.
Also pull out by turn the cd/dvd rom, hard disk, floppy unit, any PC card it might have, finally replace the memory if it still don't work.

I'm beginning to think it's the power cord (even though a power meter says otherwise). Now when I plug the cord into my expansion base the indicator light blinks a faint green and the offending notebook is still without power.

Battery? Power cord? HP? My luck with electronics? Who knows?

Any additional suggestions would help a great deal.
