Bad power supply.

the laptop was found on a garbage route practitaly brand new it had no power supply with it we are just trying to get it working again or see if we can. We bought a new power supply tonight to power it up. I am providing you with the following things that I have tried to power it up completly but all have the same results of having just power light lit up fans turn on and the cd/dvd drive working when we turn the laptop on and it can be turned off just by holding the power button down.

tried turning it on with just the power supply and no battery in it.
tried turning it on with just the battery only and no power supply.
also tried to turn it on with both power supply and battery in it.

once again all of those attempts had the same result. where the laptop turned on with the power light on cd/dvd drive working and fans working properly and nothing else on the computer goes through the power cycle other then that. so basicly its not completing the power cycle to a full boot just a partital power cycle when booting. please let me know what you think is going on or can asst any more. thanks
