Hello all, I've got a problem with my laptop. Back in Oct, I took the laptop on my honeymoon to NZ and it worked wonderfully. After the trip, I continued using it as normal for perhaps a week then closed it down as normal, put the pc back in its carrying case and have not used it since.
Just the other day, I took it out to use it again and it won't even turn on. I press the power button, a few lights flash (power, harddrive, battery indicator) the fans start and then nothing. The lights go out and the fans stop. This takes all of about 3 seconds. I even tried getting it to boot to bios but that won't work either.
Any ideas? I'm not sure if its a motherboard problem, a power problem or whatever else.
It's a Dell Inspiron 8000 with 128RAM running Windows ME.
