Presario CQ61

Hi I have been looking at threads on this site for a while and can't find the exact fault as my laptop, It's a Presario CQ61.
It was working fine one night then the next it won't switch on- nothing at all-
There is a small led that constantly blinks when i put the AC charger on but the LEDs on the front dont do anything.
I bought a new charger as i thought that might be the issue, which i recieved today and it does exactly the same.
Help!!! I've tryed doing the whole thing with the power button-no battery-then ac charger, but still nothing.
Thanks for any reply in advance
