    Hi broken_biker69,

    I'm just wondering if this is something quite basic. Please try the following:

    Remove the Power Adaptor
    Remove the Battery
    Remove any other external devices (ie USB devices)
    Hold down the ON button for 30 seconds
    Then put the Power Adaptor in ONLY
    Turn on the Power at the wall (just in case!)
    Turn on the computer

    If that works please reply (to this thread)

    AFAIK, somteimes the BIOS ROM flash is broken on this model. and, AFAIK, if you have the model with external videocard(ATI X700) it can be broken too.
