Hi guys my mother is having issues with her laptop in that its not turning on, you press the power button and the fan spins up to full speed for about 5 seconds then turns off, also the screen doesnt come on, this happens with the power cord in or out, this is weird as it was working fine a couple of days ago.

Laptop is a:

HP NC6000
Pentium M 1.6ghz
512mb RAM
120GB HDD
Win XP

sounds like a bad motherboard(assuming laptops power supplies are built onto the motherboard, not seperate like in a tower PC)..

Does the status LED show the battery charging? Does it act any different with the battery removed? If you have access to a Multimeter what output if any does the battery and the power cord (the jack that plugs into the laptop) show?
