Mac Portable problems

Hello, all:

        I decided to pull-out my Mac Portable to charge it after it being on
the shelf for about 1 year. I put the battery in and plugged in the power
adapter. As soon as I insert the battery, the unit immediately starts up but
doesn't boot and I get lots of vertical lines on the screen (in no
discernable pattern). I know that the screen has a few defective rows near
the bottom but had no other issues the last time I used it. It wasn't stored
in extreme temperatures (either cold or warm). I hope that some of the
screen drivers didn't go flaky on me.

        Since I haven't used it in a while, I've forgotten a lot about it.
Does this have a reset button on it? Any thoughts on what else to look for?
