Inspiron 17 5759 Won't Power On

Hello,

My laptop is experiencing problems in that it will not turn on.  I have attempted (all unsuccessful)

1)  Removing the battery, holding the power button for 60 seconds, and applying AC power (still without battery).

2)  Re-seating the battery.

3)  Holding the power button for 60 seconds (battery installed).  AC power applied for 30 minutes.

Nothing works.  Now, I'm sure there is a diagnostic message hidden here.  When I press the power button, the Caps Lock flashes once.  The battery light will then flash twice amber, then four times white.  I can find no information anywhere on this site exactly what that means (other than I'm screwed).

The laptop isn't even a year old and I'm on business travel to Malaysia.  So kind of not happy right now.

Anyone know what the flashing lights mean?  Any suggestions on how to fix it?

Thanks,

Ron
