Dead laptop.... Things to do first....
1) Does it charge from the mains - if not try another charger
2) Remove battery and switch on with no mains plugged in...
3) Reseat the RAM
4) Remove the hard drive
5) Remove any peripherals inc mini PCI or PCI-e cards
Most common issues are:
1) Dead mains charger
2) Broken internal mains socket
3) Dead hard drive
4) Uncharged or dead battery
These will prevent a laptop from POSTing....
