We need more information. Did you try it with A/C and no battery? Try with battery alone? Was it plugged in while the light was flashing?

Must be a PSU problem. The hole in which you plug your AC in may be loose. If you can open your laptop and good with soldering, I'd resolder that back on.

It maybe a cpu/motherboard combination...
If he can replace his cpu on his laptop and try to boot it it may work.
If it still refuses to come on with the solid amber light then its a sure gurantee the motherboard is dead.

Those boards are abit costly right now. :\
