I have a problem which I dont understand:
When I press the power button on my laptop, the power light comes on, and the hard disk light flashes for a second. The power light however stays on, as does the wifi light.
Then absolutely nothing.
No 'Windows starting' message, no nothing.
I have experienced hard disk crashes before, but normally at least the PC tries to boot from the hard disk and then displays some message, but at present I just get a silent PC and blank screen!
The only way to turn the laptop off is to keep the power button pressed for a few seconds (which used to work earlier if the PC hanged).
The Laptop is an HP Pavilion zt3000, 768 Mb RAM, 40 GB disk, running Win XP Home, bought in Jan '04, and out of warranty.
Can anyone suggest what I can do to diagnose/fix this?
Thanks in advance.
