Hello Walshy,

When you take the battery out and disconnect the cables, press on the start button for about 60 seconds, then replace the battery and cables.

Good luck

Dear Walshy,

I gave you the solution which in cases similar to yours worked 100%.

I don't know the brand and model of your lappy but it seems that there lemons on the market.

It't only a couple months old, you must still have a warranty. I suggest you take it back for repair.

Good luck.

P.S. A laptop should last for at least 3 years without any hardware problems; often there are hidden warranties.
