Sooo... What if this DOESN'T work? For me, my laptop shows the "sleep mode" symbol light, the fan is running, discs I put into the drivebay make the sound of being read, but the laptop doesn't do anything. I've tried the discharge method above, even held the power button for over 5 minutes at one point, but to no avail. I disconnected the CMOS battery, even disconnected the hard drive, but still, when I turn the laptop on, on adapter or battery, The screen stays black (even on a separate monitor), the "sleep mode" light is turned on, and the device simply doesn't respond to anything.
