1335 Acer laptop not switching on.

I switched on my laptop and had a cup of tea. Coming back there was a blank screen. Thinking it was in hibernation I pressed any key. No luck. Tried powering down (no sounds). No reaction.

I checked connections. The in line light was on. I tried the on button no luck. Is there a fuse inside the laptop which could have blown? Suggestions please.

Suggestions please.

Its an ACER, throw it in the bin and don't buy another one :0)

Seriously power off unplug mains lead, remove battery, press and hold start button for 50 seconds.

refit mains lead(leave battery out) and attempt to start.
