hi hopefully someone can help me with this. i have a Mitac 7521T - laptop with windows xp the laptop was working fine and shut down the night before when i put the laptop on the next day the screen was blank like nothing on it at all. the laptop turns on the light comes on and i can hear the fan turning..... the cd/dvd drive wont open. i have removed the battery for 2 days and then put it back in and the same thing but what i noticed is the laptop will only work as above from the power lead it doesnt start from the battery at all. i have tried connecting my LCD screen from my PC to the laptop and that hasnt made any difference. is there any method of repair or is it for the bin i bought the laptop reconditioned and it worked fine for over a year running xp playing games internet etc. Any help would be great but please take note of my username i,m know next no nothing about repairing/upgrading or anything like that. Thanks.
