After three trouble-free years my Acer Travelmate 4000 (with Windows XP) has gone on strike.
Open the lid, press the on button, the button lights up, the computer makes the usual whirring noises but then goes quiet, the display is blank.
After a minute or two the speakers start to hiss quietly.
I don't really know where to start. Tried looking at the lid-operated switch, seems to be OK.
