gateway NE56R31U laptop power button blinks 5 times will not turn on.

gateway NE56R31U laptop power button blinks 5 times will not turn on.  I replaced the battery, still nothing.  I took the batt out and unplugged AC and held pwr down for about 45 seconds, but nothing.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Thank you,
Mark

It usually means the a/c adapter/charger is faulty and needs replacing.

I got a new battery.  When I put it in and plugged AC in, I still see blue blinking light.  .....Is this still the AC cord?  

How long does the new battery need to charge before usable?

It is the charger or the charger circuitry in the laptop.
