    A very vague post, first is it under warrantly if so take it back to where you bought it from.

    If your able test the power supply with a test meter and see if there is any voltage coming out of it.

    Post back and let us know.

    I would personally try doing a static discharge.

    This can be done by removing the A/C and battery and then holding the power button down for 30 seconds.

    This will release any static caught up in the unit and has resolved many mobile computer problems i have been tasked with resolving.

    Good luck!
