I will caboose on to the end of this thread. I left the laptop unplugged with the battery out, which is shot anyway, for probably three months. Now at start up it beeps three times and that's all. Blank screen, fan runs. Tried to boot from a OS cd but the optical drive doesn't start. Ideas, other than chewing my hind end for leaving it unplugged....
