    Your notebook is telling you that your battery has died and you need a new one. In other words, you could charge the thing for a week and it still won't work.

    This sounds like a power problem. If this is a used/old laptop, the battery may be weak and not take a charge. Try plugging the computer in and turning it on. If it still doesn't work, you may have a virus :(

    If you've replaced the jack, try the battery next. It may not be taking a charge.
