It will not give me any power on the laptop on any indicator lights but the box goes from a steady green light to a flashing green light as soon as the power cable connects. It was working yesterday?

Ok, and you tried a different power socket on the wall?

The results are the same. It started this after I plugged a 30 volt max output box to the laptop on accident since it has done the flashing green light

ok... I suspected the power board inside the laptop had faulted, but when you tell me you connected 30 volts that is 100% the problem.

The motherboard will need replacing in the Laptop this is what has faulted.

If there are no burn marks from the 30volt unit (there can be as it is over twice what it can handle) then it will be covered by warranty and replaced at no cost, else your looking at a repair bill of about $200 including labor.
