My laptop is not turning on. I took battery out, cleaned and it’s still not working. Do I need a new battery?

    need more info here...are there any lights on when you plug it in? try to jiggle the plug around maybe you have a loose jack connection inside the laptop. make sure the adapter is working check it with a voltmeter or take it into a shop and ask them to check it, I always did that for free. But if the adapter is ok and there's no charge lights etc. come on when you plug it in then probably you'll have to tear it apart to find the problem.
    not an expert here...used to manage a repair shop

    what do you mean you cleaned? What and how?

    Did you try to run the laptop on AC power, i.e. plug in the cord? You don't need a battery if you have the power supply attached. Of course the power supply must be plugged into a wall socket on the other end.

    What type of laptop is this and what happened before it stopped turning on?
