Default Laptop won't open...

Hi,
I have a old laptop and I don't have the power cord anymore. So, I opened it up and took the two things that goes to the battery. The battery was 12 volts so, I figured out that it would take a 12 volts adapter. So, I took a power supply (a old one) cutted the hard drive cables and then I putted it on the battery things. So, I openned the power supply, and I opened the laptop. The power light on the laptop goes on green for 1-2 secs and after it's close.

Does someone knows why it's close after 1 or 2 secs?

Maybe it's because of the mAh the laptop battery is 1700 and my power supply is 4.5 Ah.
