Anyway, here is what's going on:
Lenovo L430 was working fine, then just shut down last week when it was very low battery (maybe completely low).
Then when I tried to plug it in, leave it for a bit, then boot it up, it would not boot up. No fan sounds. Only an intermittently blinking green power button and battery status indicator.
L430 manual says...
"Battery status indicator:
Slow blinking green: The battery charge level is between 20% and 80% and the battery is charging."
It doesn't say anything about a blinking green power button.
All it mentions for the Power Button is, "Green: the computer is turned on. This status indicator stays lit whenever the computer is on"
I bought a new charger adapter/plug thinking that was the issue. No dice.
I bought a new charging port and replaced it (currently in the computer). Same blinking green light.
Any advice as to what would allow my computer to boot up?

Then hold down the power-button for 20 seconds.
Install just the charger and try to boot.
If OK, leave it on and insert the battery.
If the machine "dies", replace the battery.
Otherwise leave it charging.
