Can't power Dell D610 laptop on

dovidf asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
The laptop is powered by the power cable. When I press the power button, the uppercase letter function light blinks and the round apple like symbol turns on briefly. Very shortly after this, it powers itself off.

I have removed the battery and held the power key for 30 seconds and it did not help.

I have tried to eject the cd drive while the light was blinking but it did not respond.

How do I get it to stay on?
