I am running Win XP with all of the updates available.
Yesterday my computer worked fine, today when I pushed the start button it turns on, the fan is running but nothing else except two lights to let me know that it has power. No messages, nothing. I cannot enter the computer, no safe mode, no cursor, nothing buy two lights, the fan and a black screen.
The DVD drive is not getting power but I opened the lock with a pin and installed the recovery disk but the computer does not recognize the DVD drive and does absolutely nothing. I have un;lugged the power cord and run on battery only, I have removed the battery and run on AC only, nothing works. The keyboard is dead,dead. The two lights do not flash it just sits dormant.
One thing it does is at the exact moment I push start is the light that used to flicker as it booted up flashes for a mili second but then nothing. I am unable to do anything to get a response from this laptop now except to turn it on and off, nothing and I mean nothing else.
